Thanks you for your inquiry.

Chondrocalcinosis: is the condition in which - Accumulation of crystals of calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate will be seen in the connective tissues.
There will be radiographic evidence of calcification in hyaline and fibro cartilage.
To add - natural anti-inflammatory foods.
At the same time it better avoids foods which are known to promote inflammation.
Such foods are listed here:
High sugar containing foods
Common Cooking Oils
Milk and dairy products
Red and processed meat
Artificial food additives
Refined Grains
Each of the above items somehow or other increase the inflammation
Drugs to reduce inflammation of chondrocalcinosis bears a risk of causing organ damage.
Treatment is not advised if the condition is not causing pain.
NSAIDs (non steroidal pain killers) are administered in low doses to help prevent chondrocalcinosis.

Hope I had been able to address your concern. let me know if I can assist you further.

Best regards
