To preface my thoughts, I will say that I have a MS in exercise science in nutrition for what it's worth. I second all the comments about fish oil, and especially cutting out grains from your diet. Definitely don't stop squatting. The knee thrives on moving through a full range of motion (i.e. past parallel) under load. Proper footwear is important also. A neutral and firm sole is excellent to squat in as it allows our feet to do what they were designed to do. Squishy soles and big heels are killers. Making sure to get tight through the midsection and squeeze the glutes sets the rest of the body up for success when squatting. I think you will find it helpful in engaging more musculature and allowing the knee to track properly. Again, just my 2 cents. Good luck.

Fish oil not so good for you anymore
That's been updated and found to be a flawed study.
Not that Fox News would ever be inaccurate , but do you have a reference for your statement?

I've learned the hard way not to use too much Ibuprofen..... due to prolonged use of heavy dosage, my kidney and liver functions are below normal. After extensive usage, the only thing that would work is collagen and cortizone shots. After that, at age 67, I'm now recovering from partial knee replacement.
