This study was performed to evaluate the effect of individualized diet challenges consisting of allergen foods on disease activity in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients. Twenty patients with positive skin prick test (SPT) response for food extracts and 20 with negative SPT response were included. All patients were instructed to restrict the most common allergen foods during 12 days and then assigned into two groups according to SPT results. Food challenges were performed with all of the… 

Nutrition Interventions in Rheumatoid Arthritis: The Potential Use of Plant-Based Diets. A Review

A review examines the potential role of a plant-based diet in mediating RA symptoms and finds that a vegan diet helps improve symptoms by eliminating many of the trigger foods in RA patients, thus reducing their inflammation and joint pain.

Rheumatoid arthritis and dietary interventions: systematic review of clinical trials.

Some dietary approaches may improve RA symptoms and thus it is recommended that nutrition should be routinely addressed.

Assessing the diet quality of individuals with rheumatic conditions: a cross-sectional study

People aged between 18 and 49 years are consuming a lower quality diet compared to people aged 50 years and over, and total fruit and added sugar were components of concern for people in the worst tertile for the AIMS2-SF.

Dietary interventions for rheumatoid arthritis.

The effects of dietary manipulation, including vegetarian, Mediterranean, elemental and elimination diets, on rheumatoid arthritis are still uncertain but higher drop-out rates and weight loss in the groups with dietary manipulation indicate that potential adverse effects should not be ignored.

Wheat Allergy and Intolerence; Recent Updates and Perspectives

The models are developed that are included in this paper showing the wheat allergen, their possible routes, impact on human health, and indeed possible remedies and the basic information for the researchers, common man, and allied stakeholders to cater the issue in details.

Dietary alpha lipoic acid supplementation prevents synovial inflammation and bone destruction in collagen-induced arthritic mice

Dairy supplementation with ALA attenuated inflammatory responses and bone destruction in CIA mice and reduced production of various proinflammatory cytokines and the soluble receptor activator of NF-κB ligand in the joint tissues and the sera.

Herbs for Rheumatoid Arthritis

Use of Oenothera biennis, Ribes nigra, and Borago officinalis seed oils, Harpagophytum procumbens, and to a lesser extent H. zeyheri (African devil's club) herb are studied in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

An experimental study of a Mediterranean diet intervention for patients with rheumatoid arthritis

The results indicate that patients with RA, by adjusting to a Mediterranean diet, did obtain a reduction in inflammatory activity, an increase in physical function, and improved vitality.

Diet therapy for rheumatoid arthritis.

The study failed to provide evidence of objective overall clinical benefit of this diet as followed by a group of patients with longstanding, progressive, active RA, but the data are not inconsistent with the possibility that individualized dietary manipulations might be beneficial for selected patients with rheumatic disease.

Food intolerance in rheumatoid arthritis. I. A double blind, controlled trial of the clinical effects of elimination of milk allergens and azo dyes.

The existence of a subgroup of patients in whom food intolerance influences the activity of rheumatoid factor seropositive r heumatoid arthritis deserves serious consideration.

A vegan diet free of gluten improves the signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis: the effects on arthritis correlate with a reduction in antibodies to food antigens.

Evidence is provided that dietary modification may be of clinical benefit for certain RA patients, and that this benefit may be related to a reduction in immunoreactivity to food antigens eliminated by the change in diet.

Since childhood food allergies to common allergenic foods such as milk, egg, wheat and soy are usually outgrown, oral food challenges are also an integral part of the long‐term management of these children.

Food intolerance in rheumatoid arthritis.

It appears from this extensive but short study of patients with seropositive RA that rheumatoid disease in a small subgroup is sensitive to dietary manipulation.

Review of dietary therapy for rheumatoid arthritis.

There are now sufficient good scientific studies, from the UK and abroad, to suggest that, at least in some patients with RA, dietary therapy may influence at least the symptoms and possibly the

Manifestations of food allergy: evaluation and management.

The diagnosis of food allergy requires a careful search for possible causes, confirmation of the cause(s) with supporting tests, including specific tests for IgE (i.e., prick skin tests, radioallergosorbent tests) and, in some cases, oral food challenges.

Compared with ESR or CRP, A-SAA correlates best with markers of disease activity, and in patients with recent onset arthritis, very high levels of SAA occur exclusively in RA.
