Diet Chart for Arthritis

Arthritis is characterized by swollen and painful one or more joints. Stiffed and painful joints are the main complaints presented in Arthritis. The peculiar point is that these complaints worsen with age. There are different types of arthritis and the more commonly occurring are rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. In Osteoarthritis, there occurs a breakdown of bone cartilage. While in Rheumatoid arthritis, the body's own immune system attacks the joints causing damage to them. Increased uric acid, lupus, or psoriasis causes the other form of arthritis. Along with the medicines, you need to control your diet in order to get treated. A healthy and balanced diet can be effective to achieve the optimum uric acid level. It can also provide energy and nutrients that are sufficient to maintain optimal health and reduces the risk of gout.
