Document Summary
Title Dietary advice for newly diagnosed cases of rheumatoid arthritis
Description Describes the role of exclusion diets and nutritional supplementation in management of RA patients
Creation Date 20 October 2006
Doc type Article
Document Abstract:
Conventional treatment of RA with NSAIDs, steroids and immunotherapy continues to pose problems in terms of patient response and compliance. Much evidence has now accumulated on the potential beneficial effects of dietary therapy in the management of RA. Given the relapsing and variable course of RA and the desire of many patients to retain a greater degree of control over their disease, dietary advice at presentation is to be recommended. Advice should be informed and based on the work that has been done on exclusion diets and nutritional supplements.
