Q: Will my diet affect my arthritis?
A: There is no single diet for a patient with arthritis. In fact, what you should eat depends to a certain extent on the form of the arthritis.
For example, for gouty arthritis you should avoid red meat, seafood, alcohol and fructose (as in soft drinks). At the same time, dairy products such as low-fat milk and yogurt, cherries are recommended for gout.
Hydration is essential.
Let me say that again … Hydration is essential.
People with rheumatoid arthritis may benefit from the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish.
Minimizing salt intake can reduce swelling in the tissues of the hands and feet that aggravate inflammatory arthritis.
Vitamin D supplements may be useful for psoriatic arthritis and osteoarthritis. Glucosamine supplements can also be useful.
In short, having a healthy diet will reduce other factors that affect symptoms, such as fatigue, overweight and weak joints.
