Reply: Should you eat seafood if you have bone and joint pain?
Seafood (crabs, crabs, snails, octopus, oysters, fish...) are foods loved by many people. They can be processed into many delicious dishes. The nutritional content in seafood is very rich and useful for health.
However, not everyone should eat a lot of these foods, including people with bone and joint pain. Joint pain can appear in people with gout, arthritis, osteoarthritis, hyperuricemia...
Seafood contains high purine content. Purines are the cause of gout and joint pain. Therefore, patients should not eat a lot of purine-rich dishes such as seafood.
In addition, shrimp, crab, oysters... also contain a lot of zinc minerals. People with gout and arthritis who consume too much zinc can destroy joint cartilage, causing pain, swelling and stiffness.
You can eat seafood at the allowable level as advised by a specialist to help improve symptoms. Some natural essences such as eggshell membrane, undenatured collagen type 2, hydrolyzed collagen peptide, turmeric root, chondroitin sulfate... support pain relief in osteoarthritis, arthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis. These nutrients also help protect the synovial membrane, contribute to the regeneration of joint cartilage, and increase joint durability and flexibility .
If joint pain is severe and persistent, you should see a specialist for timely treatment.
