General & Family Physician 's  Response
Hi, I too didn't come across such condition before. Any how there are medicines concerned with the regeneration of the cartilage, they can be tried with the advise of a rheumatologist, as chance taking.
I advise you to avoid potato, other tubers, tomato, egg, chicken, and sea foods. to avoid pain, it is not documented but you will definitely have pain relief.
Thank you.
