    8 Foods You Should Avoid That Worsen Arthritis

    Perhaps, if I am asked to mention one of the major diseases that affect the health of older people in the world, there is no doubt that arthritis will be on top of my list.  Arthritis is joint inflammation, depicting a swelling and tenderness of one or more of the joints. Its main symptoms include joint pain, swelling and stiffness

    Medical experts however believe that Joint inflammation is a natural reaction of the body to a disease or injury, but becomes arthritis when the inflammation lingers on in the absence of joint injury or infection. Arthritis usually worsens as people are advancing in age and may even lead to a loss of joint movement.

    In today’s article, we will focus attention on what we can do to manage the situation since it is believed that certain foods may exacerbate arthritis’ joint pain and inflammation.  Experts advised that people should stick to low-calorie whole foods with lots of vitamins and fibre, like leafy greens and beans.

    Below are certain foods that can make arthritis worsen by contributing to joint inflammation or weight gain or both. Foods that you have to avoid are as follows:

    1.       Refined carbohydrates such as biscuits, white bread, and pasta

    2.       Red meat

    3.       Dairy products

    4.       Salt

    5.       Corn, sunflower, safflower, peanut, and soy oils

    6.       Sugars including sucrose and fructose

    7.       Fried or grilled foods

    8.       Alcohol
