More Researchers Suggest Food Allergies May Be Linked To Rheumatoid Arthritis

Orlando, FL - February 26, 2015 - Many rheumatoid arthritis sufferers follow a specific diet to better manage their condition. Some health experts believe that there are certain types of foods that can significantly trigger rheumatoid arthritis. Today, there are numerous researchers who believe that the wrong food choices could have undesirable effects for individuals who are suffering from or susceptible to rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

More researchers suggest that food allergies may be linked to rheumatoid arthritis. While there is still no definitive proof demonstrating the connection between RA and food allergies, there is some evidence indicating that certain food types can trigger inflammation. This has led many health experts to recommend the practice of rheumatoid arthritis diets.

According to the Kings College London’s professor of allergy and environmental health, Jonathan Brostoff, DM, it is the gut that is directly exposed to food. The gut’s immune system is often the first to recognize potential allergens. Food allergies take place when the immune system mistakenly thinks that a food eaten is harmful. To protect the body, it produces IgE antibodies, or immunoglobulin E. A set of chain reactions then takes place that significantly cause inflammatory symptoms.

Dr. Brostoff believes that in some people, proteins and antibodies bind together to create immune complexes in the intestine, which then circulate around the body, eventually reaching joints. This can significantly increase the risk for inflammation.

“There has not yet been a study that has validated the link between rheumatoid arthritis and food allergies. However, many health experts recommend that people take prudent care in choosing their food. If possible, individuals at high risk should adopt a rheumatoid arthritis diet,” says VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

In addition to choosing the right types of food items, there are also some health experts who recommend the use of glucosamine supplements. The human body is believed to have certain amounts of naturally-occurring glucosamine in the body that protects the joints. However, as a person ages, the glucosamine levels also decrease. According to several health experts, glucosamine may be effective in replenishing the glucosamine loss in the body to help maintain healthy joints (http://www.amazon.com/Glucosamine-Sulfate-Chondroitin-Supplement-Turmeric/dp/B00DUMO9X4).
