Good info to know:

Fight Arthritis: 10 Foods That Help and Hurt | Lifescript.com

Incorporate fatty fish like salmon, walnuts, extra virgin olive oil, brazil nuts, onions and green tea into your diet more often to help with those arthritis symptoms.

Avoid oils such as sunflower, safflower, corn and soybean oils (and the products made with these oils) which can increase the inflammation of arthritis.

I'm skeptical. i really doubt anything you eat is going to have much of an impact. However, if you're overweight, taking off some pounds by limiting calories and increasing activity to the extent you can will probably help.

I agree that taking the weight off will always help improve your arthritic knees and ankles (among other things). But the science is there to show that foods do indeed negatively and positively effect the condition.

Diet helps alot. But getting yourself in shape is the way to go. Keep moving, low intake of sugar & bad fats. Salmon helps me alot as does Sardines. Too much red meat hurts me, especially ground beef.

For me.....dairy....yikes, that makes my joints crackle. Not as bad, but still causes problems.....whole grains, too many carbs.

Things that help with my crummy joints.....low carb diet, Omega 3 foods such as eggs and fatty fish.
