Our expert says:
Because rheumatoid arthritis is a serious condition that requires different dietary management depending on which phase you are in, I would recommend that you consult a clinical dietitian so that she/he can work out an individual diet prescription for you which takes all your present factors into account: the phase of the RA, your medications and their side-effects, your hypothyroidism, weight gain or possibly water retention. For your own sake it is important to have a dietitian overseeing your diet if you have RA.
