Paleo has been demonstrated to massively reduce joint pain through the reduction of inflammation.

Health should be your number 1 priority so my advice is to eat 100% Paleo which will reduce inflammation and as a side effect rid you of any excess fat, thereby improving the situation further.

I have arthritis in my knees.The best thing I found for it was squatting.I found strong muscles take the load off the knee.Oly squats can hurt my knees at times but a powerlifting stance squat doesn't.

I don't think he has rheumatoid arthritis. Far more likely to osteoarthritis, a wear-and-tear condition. Diet may offer some benefit but it won't necessarily fix things - once the cartilage covering the knee joint is gone, it is gone.

You are quite young to have severe arthritis but its not impossible. Have your knees had a lot of wear in the past (manual labour job, kneeling a lot, footballer, weightlifting etc)?

I would try not to take ibuprofen every day as it can make your stomach lining more vulnerable to stomach acid and cause ulcers or bleeding. Paracetamol is a much better option to take regularly - you can take 2 tablets up to 4 times a day. Ibuprofen is better for short term use only.

Icing the knees after training, using neoprene sleeves during training and warm packs the rest of the day can help with pain also. Sports massage on your quadriceps may be helpful as trigger points in the muscles may contribute to knee pain.

Has your GP suggested an X-ray of the knees, or an appointment with an orthopaedic surgeon? It would be worth enquiring about these.

Start riding a bike! as an x olly lifter I have been through the wars with my knees n was told of mal tracking, tendinitis, arthritis etc... from about 10 years ago but I have 3 1a day glucosamine per day tape my knees up across the patela tendon just below my knee cap n ride a bike it's the best re-hab ever. Keep good joint alinement on ur pedel strokes. The low intesity mobility wil help produce synovial fluid lubing up ur knees n its none weight baring. Also ice baths after training

If the question is about diet, the answer is always Paleo.

I'm sure it's not the cure to every problem that the paleo fans suggest, but since giving up gluten almost all my joint pains have gone. Prior to that my hands were often so sore that it was a struggle to lift the kettle first thing in the morning and bending down and standing up was challenging because my kne ere often so sore.

Unless mentioned, especially in a male and related to exercise we should assume he has osteoarthritis, which is a degenerative condition, not inflammatory.... So reducing inflammation has little benefit generally

I suspect this is wrong - if you are sensitive to grains, milk ... Then when you have even if you have pain caused by wear and tear the extra inflammation will surely cause even more problems.

He mentions "crunching" of the knees on climbing stairs. Also known as crepitus, a sign of degenerative changes.
