Diet and RA

Posted on March 05, 2018

Healthy eating can be difficult for a rheumatoid arthritis diagnosis, but excess weight can make your joint pain worse. Changing your diet can be challenging to undertake. Finding the motivation to eat right when you have RA is best done alongside others with RA who understand the obstacles and rewards.

On myRAteam, the social network and online support group for those living with rheumatoid arthritis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Diet is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.
