Arthritis diet: Three drinks 'likely to cause painful arthritis symptoms', say researchers

Dr Vivian Bykerk listed different types of inflammatory arthritis:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Spondyloarthropathies
  • Psoriatic arthritis
  • Reactive arthritis
  • Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS)
  • Sacroiliitis
  • Gout
  • Calcium pyrophosphate dehydrate deposition disease (CPPD)
  • Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR).

“In a healthy person, inflammation is a limited and ultimately helpful response to fight off a foreign substance,” Dr Bykerk began.

“Once the infection or virus has been eliminated, inflammation and the swelling, heat and tenderness that comes with it resolves.

“In a person with inflammatory arthritis, the immune response has ‘gone wrong’,” she explained.
