Yes diet affect Osteoarthritis.If you have osteoarthritis of the hands, you should avoid fatty and unhealthy foods. Weight reduction may decrease your osteoarthritis symptoms; in particular, weight reduction decreases the wear and tear on your joints, especially your knees. Moreover, excess body fat increases inflammation in your body; this increased inflammation can further exacerbate your osteoarthritis symptoms. You don't even need to lose a lot of weight. Consider this -- one pound of weight loss is equivalent to four pounds less stress on your joints . Avoid foods that will hinder your weight loss and increase inflammation, such as foods that include saturated fat, trans fat and simple refined carbohydrates. Stay clear of fast food, processed food, sweets, fried food and other food high in fat and sugar.
