Depends on type: 150 types of arthritis. Gout is affected by diet (prot., purines, alcohol); rheumatoid maybe modestly affected by amt and type of fat intake.

Inflammatory/autoimmune arthritis also does not resolve on its own. Needs treatments with meds that control the immune attack. ...Read more
