Does Sugar Cause Arthritis

Does Sugar Cause Arthritis

I am wanting opinions does sugar make arthritis worse or even be the cause of it.

I agree with Karen87. Sugar and rich foods in general. Mother’s Day dinner was quite a feast. I paid with extra aches and pains for several days

Pasta, bread, and refined sugar did also make my pain worse. I have cut those drastically out of my diet.

Absolutely. My bloodwork shows a huge difference when I'm eating sugars and breads, vs. when I don't. (So obviously, as a rule, I don't. 😃)
