Hi there, I'm wondering if anyone has any opinions regarding the different foods that may make inflammation in osteoarthritis worse? I've been reading various literature and there's a list of different types of foods that everyone generally agrees on (fried foods, red meat, refined sugar, alcohol, tobacco etc).
I have a couple of definite food intolerances (dairy, soya, alcohol). I gave up gluten last year as I was ill and I kind of made the assumption that that was the next step. However recently I've decided to actually test this out properly, which I'm now doing. I'm back on gluten and I'm now having a flare up of my OA in my hands and I've developed new symptoms in my knees. Reading up on this, the thoughts on whether gluten can make OA worse are not conclusive at all. I was wondering if anyone had any experience of this?
