Refined carbohydrates can provoke inflammatory reactions in people with arthritis, so their consumption should be kept to a minimum. On Thursday, July 29, the Daily Express newspaper writes about this with reference to the specialists of the medical resource Medical News Today.
As doctors warn, choosing white toast bread for breakfast can provoke an exacerbation of the disease, leading to joint pain, inflammation and restriction of movement. Refined carbohydrates such as white bread, rice and potato chips promote the growth of the final oxidants of complete glycosylation, experts said.
In addition, sodas, flavored coffees, fruit juices, and even sugary teas are not recommended for patients with various forms of arthritis due to the high amount of processed sugars in the composition. It is also very important to avoid consuming too much saturated fat.
Earlier, on June 11, American specialists from the Department of Rheumatology, Immunology and Allergy at Brigham and Women’s Hospital said that drinking certain beverages – for example, sugary soda and beer – can lead to the development of rheumatoid arthritis.
In April, experts from the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons named the early symptoms of arthritis. In their opinion, “dull pain” in the hands can be an indicator of illness. The second symptom, according to experts, is a painful burning sensation in the joints, characteristic of the first half of the day.
