Is there a diet to treat arthritis?

Unfortunately, at this stage there is no scientific evidence that supports cutting out specific foods to improve arthritis.

It is best to choose a healthy diet that includes a wide variety of foods and is consistent with the Australian Dietary Guidelines.

Cutting out specific foods in an effort to improve arthritis can mean missing out on important nutrients.

Being overweight places extra stress on our joints and may increase inflammation throughout the body. Many people find losing weight reduces the pain and inflammation of arthritis.

An Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) can provide professional advice and guidance if changes to your diet are needed.
