In brief: None

No particular foods are contraindicated in rheumatism or rheumatoid arthritis unless certain concurrent medications explicitly demand them.

In brief: No

There is no food diet that aggrevates RA or lessens it effects unless a patient has an allergy to a protein such as milk.
This is very rare and we do not recommend elimination diets for ra. Gouty arthritsis can be aggrevated by high protein foods like beans which contian purines. We recommend hig diary protein and low red meat/fish diets for gout patients.

In brief: Avoid sat fats

Most important is to avoid saturated fats.
Protein should be from egg white, quinoa, nuts, legumes, or fish. Total quantity 50 grams protein per day.
