I have a rheumatologist's referral for suspected psoriatic arthritis. I've been reading up on the condition and I see that it is linked to obesity, and it seems to be that obesity can cause it, rather than the other way round.
I am overhauling my diet, without dieting, just cleaning it up to remove sugar, and I'm going to try to step up my exercise (not easy with a lot of foot and back pain). I wondered if anyone had tried dietary changes and/or exercise changes and if they'd made any difference. If so I'd love to hear from you.
I'm particularly interested to hear whether weight loss itself, or improved diet, actually made the most difference to your pain. I appreciate those two things are very hard to separate, but any hard-won data from your trials and errors would be most gratefully received. Thanks!
