    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    It's because your knees gets weak day-by-day with lack of vitamins.

    Not sure how weight reduction has anything to do with a lack of vitamins making your knees weaker... could you be responding to a different thread?

    To the orignal poster, it's nice to know how even a little weight loss can improve things. The pressure on the knees can be tremendous. I think of it this way... if I am carying a fifty kilo pack, even taking off five kilos of that will feel good!
