Hello Rosa,
I would advise you to consult a health care professional to give you a proper diagnosis. Taking tablets usually only address's the symptoms and not the cause of the problem. I would advise you to see a qualified nutritionist to ensure your Barrets Disease is managed correctly and to see your doctor or an osteopath with regard to your hands.
Best regards

Ek is 53 jaar oud en het '' lang geskiedenis van gereelde oefening (hardloop) Het lang afstande gedoen (Comrades en Two Oceans) Sedert 2 jaar gelede vind ek dit moeilik om aan die gang te kom in die oggende. My knieë  en hande is styf en is dit vir my ongemaklik om te hardloop - my liggaam sê  vir my om te stop. Gewoonlik het my bors my gestop ! Ek stap 5 keer per week vir ''n uur lank sonder enige ongemak - dit is net dat ek nie meer kan hardloop nie. Ek begin maar stadig en as die styfheid weg is kan ek weer lekker stap maar my knieë  raak seer en lam sodra ek begin hardloop.

Ek is ''n bietjie oorgewig maar nie so abnormaal dat ek nie kan oefen nie.

Ek het volledige bloedtoetse by my plaaslik dokter laat doen wat al die merkers vir sekere kondisies (arthritis, rumatiek ens.) getoets het - alles is normaal. Cholesterol ook normaal, suiker ook normaal.

Ek is al raadop en wil graag weer begin oefen.

Hoop u kan help !
