A Diet For Those That Have Rheumatoid Arthritis

Author : Anneta Reid

The medicine aids in fighting the pain that the patient is experiencing in their joints.

One type of arthritis that is treated by changes in a person's current diet is known as Gout. For a person to continue to eat what is causing the arthritis will cause the condition to worsen. If you stick with the diet that the doctor assigns to you then you can be sure to feel better and have relief of your current symptoms over time. If you know that you are suffering from arthritis then you need to contact your health provider immediately so that they can inform you on what kind of diet you need to be on.

You might not like the diet that you physician suggests to you, but the most important thing to you is your health so it is better to follow the guidelines of the proper diet so that your body can heal properly. You should know that there are certain foods that can trigger pain episodes in your body. After being examined, your doctor should be able to tell you what foods you need to stay clear away from eating.

There are some obvious foods that are considered to be stimulants of arthritis pain that you need to stay clear away from eating. These foods would include:
? Caffeinated food/drinks
? Specified vegetables
? Additives
? Chocolates
? Salt
? Red Meat
? Certain Dairy products

You should be able to notice on your own if certain foods cause you arthritis symptoms to flare up. Just take note of everything that you eat and if you experience joint pain after eating it then you should stop eating it and notify your physician on your next doctor visit.

However, just like there are foods that can worsen arthritis symptoms, there are also foods that can stop symptoms and make you feel better. According to what diet your doctor recommends, you will most likely be told to eat moderate amounts of certain foods to help with your condition.

Recent studies that have been made show that inflammation can be reduced when you eat oranges, plant oils and fish oils. The oils will allow your joints to become less tender, and any fatigue that you might experience will be reduced as well. Some doctors even suggest a strict diet of organic fruits and vegetables.

Vitamins from fish such as Omega-3 and Vitamin D have also been known to reduce the presence of symptoms produced by arthritis. The intake of less sodium and sugar would be recommended by a doctor, and well balances diet is what would be replaced with your old diet.

Avoid all types of foods that are high in cholesterol and that are very fatty. These foods are so easy to indulge in and very tempting, but you must remember that your health comes first! You should also avoid drinking any alcoholic beverages because they tend to cause the arthritis condition to get worse.

Any type of foods that would cause you to gain excessive weight should be avoided altogether because the arthritis will get worse. Gaining weight can only cause the joint pain to get worse.
