Vegetarian diet to help relieve rheumatoid arthritis

Health for human | It turned out that a gluten-free vegetarian diet of nuts, sunflower seeds, fruits and vegetables offer protection against heart attacks and strokes for people who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. It seems that this diet lowers cholesterol and also affect the immune system so that alleviate some symptoms associated with joint pain.

Researchers writing in the journal Arthritis Research and Therapy, 18 March 2008 said that this finding is in line with previous findings that a vegetarian diet regimen results in patients with arthritis who showed a decrease in blood pressure, decreased body mass index and lower incidence of cardiovascular disease.

About 20 million people have rheumatoid arthritis in the entire world, an autoimmune disease caused our bodies confused recognize foreign material and attacks its own healthy tissues.

In this study, Johan Frostegard and colleagues provide a gluten-free vegetarian food for the 38 volunteers and 28 other people are given a balanced diet but non-vegetarian diet for one year.

People with a diet without animal products and gluten, commonly found in wheat, rye and barley, have cholesterol levels of 'bad' or LDL (low density lipoprotein) lower. Cholesterol 'bad' can inhibit arterial blood vessels. They also lost weight while the volunteers with no other dietary changes. The researchers said further studies are needed to determine the role of different foods can have protective benefits against heart attacks and strokes.

In March 2008, researchers from Finland said that generic pills 1 time a week to handle the disease, were significantly lower risk of heart attacks and strokes in people with this condition. Recent studies also indicate that the newer drugs that block the inflammatory protein called tumor necrosis factor (TNF) is also effective to reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes in people with this condition.

The researchers said in its report, the evidence suggests that LDL may be involved in the activation of the immune system is wrong. The volunteers with a vegetarian diet have levels of C reactive protein (CRP) is lower, which is an indicator of levels of inflammation in the body and are associated with heart disease.
