Do you suffer with arthritis?

Looking carefully at your diet and cutting down on certain foods may help ease your joint pain.

According to Professor Alan Silman, medical director of Arthritis Research UK, getting the right balance of vitamins and minerals daily could help. “It’s important to make sure you’re eating a balanced diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables, as this maximises your intake of the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants which keep joints healthy,” he explains.

“Changing your diet won’t cure arthritis, but some people find it can play a part in helping to manage the symptoms of the condition.”
Citrus fruits, such as lemons and grapefruit, and vegetables from the nightshade family, including potatoes, tomatoes, peppers and aubergines, have been identified as possibly contributing to joint pain.

“Some people might find certain foods make their arthritis worse, but because everyone is different, and there are so many varying types of arthritis, what affects one person may not have the same effect on another.”
