Nutrition & Rheumatic disease

Since the 1930’s researchers have been exploring the link between diet and arthritis. Association between arthritis and nutrition has been demonstrated by the discoveries surrounding celiac disease. Investigation into gluten or other nutrients as triggers for other types of arthritis, such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis has been more challenging. However, patients should be encouraged to follow a healthy, balanced diet that fosters a healthy weight.
