Vegetarian diet for patients with rheumatoid arthritis--status: two years after introduction of the diet



Vegetarian diet for patients with rheumatoid arthritis--status: two years after introduction of the diet



Clinical Rheumatology 13(3): 475-482



We have previously reported that a significant improvement can be obtained in rheumatoid arthritis patients by fasting followed by an individually adjusted vegetarian diet for one year. The patients who changed their diet could be divided into diet responders and diet nonresponders. After the clinical trial the patients were free to change diet or medication and after approximately one year they were asked to attend a new clinical examination.
