There are a lot of medical and non medical options that can help with OA. Which ones you will help you depend on all kinds of things including personal preference, severity, insurance,...
Careful exersize is usually recomended as is losing weight if you need to some people swear by condroiten (sp)
If your disease is more sever surgery might be beneficial or the injections of artificial joint fluid. The best source of information on your individual options is of cource your doctor but maybe we can help you find the questions to ask.
Anyway, welcome to healingwell and I know others will be along to say hello soon.

Moderate is just an estimate on how much damage has been done to the cartilledge and other tissue in the joint. Probably you are not a surgical canidate yet but they may want you to try the injections or some medications to manage pain.
If you start loosing some of the weight you may find it helps to decrease your joint pain.
