Our expert says:
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) may respond to increased omega-3 fatty acid intake. You can try taking Salmon oil capsules to increase your omega-3 intake. If you should develop more serious RA which involves flare-ups, then it is a good idea to consult a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area), to assist you during such periods when your nutrient requirement is considerably increased.
I do hope that this will not be necessary and that the omega-3 FAs will help your condition.
