Is reactive arthritis related to poor nutrition, in terms of causes and treatment?

In brief: Reactive arthritis

Arthritis is due to inflammation in the joint spaces.
Proper nutrition is important for well-being and for healing. Everyone who has poor nutrition does not have reactive arthritis; the cause and effect relationship between the two is not established.
