Foods arthritis patients should avoid

If you have Arthritis, rheumatism, pain or any bone problem, what I’m about to share with you in this post could prevent you from having a premature heart attack, save your kidneys, legs, nerves and even save your life. Arthritis, is a serious health problem that can lead to joint pains, swelling, heart attacks, strokes, loss of appetite and joint deformity.
There are several types of foods known to either promote or suppress inflammation in our bodies. If you
seek out the anti-inflammatory options and avoid the inflammatory options, you may be able to ease arthritis pain and symptoms. Some of the examples are:

Processed foods
Avoid processed foods such as baked goods and prepackaged meals and snacks. These items contain trans fats to help preserve them, and trans fats trigger systemic inflammation. To dodge trans fats, avoid any foods labeled as containing partially hydrogenated oils.
Foods that contain refined sugar—including pastries, chocolate, candy, soda, and even fruit juices—trigger the release of proteins in the body called cytokines, which cause inflammation. Sugar is labeled many ways in food items; in addition to sugar, watch for corn syrup, fructose, sucrose, or maltose in the ingredient list.
Red meat and fried foods
Meat—especially red meat—is high in saturated fats, which cause high cholesterol and inflammation. On top of this, meat also contains high levels of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) that stimulate inflammation, particularly when meat is cooked by broiling, grilling, roasting, or frying it.1
It’s not just fried chicken you should avoid, though. Other fried foods, such as donuts and French fries, contain trans fats in addition to AGEs.
Avoiding foods and drinks that trigger inflammation is not just good for your arthritis. An anti-inflammatory diet can also help prevent other chronic conditions like heart disease and diabetes.
A number of different types of medication treat arthritis:
⦁ Analgesics, such as ⦁ hydrocodone (Vicodin) or ⦁ acetaminophen (Tylenol), are effective for pain management, but don’t help decrease inflammation.
⦁ Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ⦁ ibuprofen and salicylates, help control pain and inflammation. Salicylates can thin the blood, so they should be used very cautiously with additional blood thinning medications.
⦁ Menthol or capsaicin ⦁ creams block the transmission of pain signals from your joints.
