Did you know that Bipasha Basu has been suffering from acute osteoarthritis for a decade now?
We all have some elderly people in our family who suffer from arthritis, weak knees, inabiity to exercise, and increasing weight that adds to the problem. We have always believed that this inability to be active is a byproduct of arthritis and cannot be avoided. Bipasha has proved that it is not so.
In 2005, Bips was diagnosed with acute osteoarthritis, a condition that is very rare amongst young people. The condition was diagnosed after Bips hurt herself while working out on a treadmill. Slowly it became very difficult for Bipasha to continue to exercise. We all know that Bips has always been a fitness enthusiast. Imagine how wrecked she must have been when her doctors told her to avoid strenous exercise of any kind. But instead of accepting this as her fate, Bipasha decided to fight back and has won! Bipasha started taking Glucosamine Chondrotin supplements she could prevent cartilage damage while working out and continue with her passion.
The gorgeous actress has also revealed that when her condition was first diagnosed, it got to a stage where her knees became like those of a 65 year old. Fighting excruciating pain, she discussed her condition with Shahrukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan, both of whom gave her advice about which doctors to get treatment from. The doctors asked her to undergo some tests and she was schocked with the results. Since then, Bipasha has become even more conscious about taking care of her body, does not go in for crash diets any more, is very careful about eating nourishing wholesome food, and does not miss her workout for even a day!
