If you suffer from arthritis, it is important to note that diet plays a big role and there are some foods that trigger arthritis and avoiding such foods can greatly reduce the symptoms of arthritis.
Such foods include:
1. Read Meat
It produces saturated fats which causes the cells in the body to release inflammatory signals that causes joint pains, fatigue and muscle pain to people with arthritis.
2. Dairy Products
Foods such as cheese, butter, milk, ghee and yogurt have a protein that triggers symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and should be eliminated from your diet if you suffer from RA.
3. Wheat Products
Wheat has gluten which triggers celiac disease common with people suffering from arthritis. It causes them to suffer from bloating and joint pains. Removing wheat products and replacing them with vegetables and fruits is a great alternative.
4. Caffeinated Drinks
This includes coffee, sodas and tea. Drinking caffeine causes joint pains and swelling of feet in some people. If you need to hydrate, taking plain water of flavored water would be a better option.
5. Processed Foods
Sugar and other refined carbohydrates are some of the foods that trigger arthritis since they produce pro inflammatory compounds that cause pain.
6. Alcoholic Beverages
Alcohol can lower your bone density if drunk excessively and it might also interfere with the medication you are taking to control symptoms of arthritis.
It is packed with trans fatty acids (TFAs) which increases the production of C-active protein that causes great inflammation in the system.
Monitoring your diet and if possible, keeping a diary to monitor what you eat will help you determine other foods that trigger arthritis. While watching your diet and what you eat, you should also note that being overweight puts a lot of pressure on your joints and you are likely to suffer from muscle pains if you are obese. Therefore, while taking note of foods that trigger arthritis and eliminating them from your diet, you should always substitute them with healthy options.
