I was reading an article about a teenager's struggle with Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. They mention in the article that rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder and its main symptom is joint inflammation. They also mention what they think causes it:
"The disorder is believed to have several causes, according to the Web site of the NYU Langone Medical Center in New York, including unknown environmental factors and a genetic susceptibility, reflected in a family history of autoimmune disorders and a positive blood test for the HLA B-27 antigen."
They don't mention her diet or that diet is a known cause of arthritis. Because they mention it is an autoimmune disorder, I'm curious about how a person's diet might affect the condition.
Has anyone with arthritis noticed any difference from changing your diet?
