In brief: Alkaline ph diet

Changing you diet to make your body type more alkaline body pH should hold between 6.
8-7.4 (either serum or urine pH testing strips) and the other factors with RA needs to be adjusted like - Prednisone tends to make you gain weight. Muscle mass, which burns more calories, is lost with lowered activity level due to pain. So building lean muscle with carnitine, glutamine, with anti-inflammatory diet.
