No specific diet has been found to affect palindromic rheumatism, but it’s important to manage your weight to avoid strain on your joints. For some people with PR, eating raw potato helps ease pain and discomfort due to the mineral salts found in the potato skin.
Fish oils are also helpful for some people in reducing their reliance on non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) due to the mild anti-inflammatory effect of fish oil. Some people also find that limiting or eliminating certain foods, like processed cheese helps because those foods can trigger a PR attack. However, because Palindromic rheumatism affects everyone differently, people with PR need to experiment with eliminating certain foods one at a time if they feel that a specific food may be worsening their symptoms.
