The role of nutrition and diet in rheumatoid arthritis.
Proc Nutr Soc 1998; 57(2):231-4PN

Abstract

Given the lack of understanding of the nutritional requirements in RA, plus the variability in its clinical course, it is difficult to produce specific dietary recommendations for RA. In general, sufferers should consume as varied a diet as possible, based on current Department of Health (1991) guidelines. Dietary counselling is important to help patients achieve this. Self-imposed elimination diets should be avoided and suspected food intolerance tested under strict clinical supervision. Nutrient megadosing is inadvisable, although dietary supplementation with Ca, vitamin D, folic acid or multivitamins and minerals should be recommended where necessary.
