According to the results of a study recently published in Europe, it is known that diet control is not very helpful in treating arthritis.

According to a medicalnewstoday press release, a team of researchers from the European Association for Rheumatology (EULAR) found that diet control did not bring significant benefits to people with musculoskeletal disorders. The results of this study were published in RMD Open.

The researchers analyzed 24 systematic reviews and 150 original articles to explore the link between eating habits and musculoskeletal disorders. Musculoskeletal disorders included osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and gout.

The researchers noted that relatively little research has been done on most diets, and the evidence for the effects of these factors is very low. Therefore, any outcome is known to have a moderate to high risk of bias. Also, in many studies, such as randomized controlled trials with large sample sizes, such as studies on chondroitin and vitamin D for osteoarthritis, their effectiveness was small and clinically insignificant.

As for why these studies generally produce low-quality data, Dr. Strand said, “We didn’t have a sensitive means to detect the effects of the diet, so the study resulted in a lot of low-grade data. “We don’t know how long the harm studies should last, and it’s not clear how to determine these effects apart from lifestyle and physical activity.”

The team who conducted the subsequent review concluded that the single diets studied to date had no real benefit in outcomes in patients with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.

However, they noted that more research is needed to evaluate eating habits, dietary habits, etc., as there are few published studies on other musculoskeletal disorders.
