Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, systemic inflammatory disorder that primarily affects joints. It may result in deformed and painful joints, which can lead to loss of function. The disorder may also have signs and symptoms in organs other than joints.

The process involves an inflammatory response of the capsule around the joints (synovium) secondary to swelling (turgescence) of synovial cells, excess synovial fluid, and the development of fibrous tissue (pannus) in the synovium. It also affects the underlying bone (focal erosions) and cartilage (thinning and destruction). RA can also produce diffuse inflammation in the lungs, the membrane around the heart, the membranes of the lung (pleura), and whites of the eye, and also nodular lesions, most common in subcutaneous tissue. It is a clinical diagnosis made primarily on the basis of symptoms and physical examination. X-rays, laboratory testing, and synovial fluid analysis might help support a diagnosis or exclude other disorders with similar symptoms.

Causes of Rheumatoid Athritis

Half of the risk for RA is believed to be genetic. Family history is an important risk factor. Inheriting the gene has been shown to double a person's susceptibility to RA.

Smoking is the most significant non-genetic risk with RA being up to three times more common in smokers than non-smokers, particularly in men, heavy smokers, and those who are rheumatoid factor positive. Modest alcohol consumption may be protective.

Vitamin D deficiency is more common in people with rheumatoid arthritis than in the general population.

Diet

The traditional Mediterranean diet is loaded with fruits, vegetables, whole grains, healthy fats, beans, and fish. A study that followed women who ate this way for 6 months found they had less joint pain and morning stiffness and better overall health than a group who didn’t.

Why? These foods have compounds that keep inflammation in check. Veggies, beans, and whole grains are high in fiber. Fish has omega-3 fatty acids -- salmon, herring, sardines, and anchovies have the most. The American Heart Association recommends eating fish twice a week.

The diet also relies on olive oil, a healthy fat, to take the place of whole dairy products like butter. That’s good for people with RA, because olive oil can also lower amounts of the chemicals that cause inflammation. It works much the same way as ibuprofen does.

The fruits and vegetables in the Mediterranean diet are full of antioxidants that also help ward off inflammation. Look for deep or bright colors. Think blueberries, blackberries, squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, tomatoes, peppers, oranges, broccoli, and melons. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley, as well as many packaged and restaurant foods. If you have celiac disorder and eat gluten, your small intestine gets inflamed. This prevents you from absorbing some nutrients.

How does this relate to RA? Joint pain and inflammation are also common symptoms of gluten sensitivity. But the evidence doesn't show that avoiding gluten will improve RA. Gluten-free foods can be low in fiber and may lack key nutrients. They can also be high in fat and calories.
