My friend just told me her RA is much improved when she eliminated dairy from her diet. She's eating mostly vegetarian these days she said.

I wonder if my creaky knees might benefit from no dairy, too?

Anyone else treat their RA or OA with diet?

Seems something like 80% of adults cannot tolerate certain proteins in milk products. Consumption causes inflammation..pain!

Finding this interesting.

I personally have no problems with cheese or butter. I cannot tolerate milk, whey or yogurt however. So I guess it depends on the individual.

I've never noticed any correlation between diet and my RA. Ironically one of my worst flare-ups when I was eating only vegetarian for the week.

I don't eat a lot of dairy.

I don't know if there's a connection, but my mother has RA, and she's never been able to tolerate dairy. She was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease in her early 70s.

I've had RA for decades. Last year I started drinking milk regularly - a glass or two a day - for the calcium and because I like milk. The RA pain in my upper arms and shoulders became so bad I was in tears. I eliminated the milk and it the pain went away. I do eat some cheese and butter without a problem - but not too much. I've also noticed that fatty meat can cause the same problem.
