Arthritis is a condition that is caused due to inflammation in the joint area leading to excessive joint pain. Arthritis is not just a single disease; it is related to several other chronic diseases like diabetes, obesity, etc. It has become one of the most common kinds of lifestyle disease, affecting millions of people worldwide. The basic treatment for arthritis involves reducing joint pain and inflammation. But did you know there are certain anti-inflammatory foods that doctors suggest to include in the diet to prevent arthritis?

Well, there are also certain foods that should be completely avoided if you have arthritis. Read below to learn which foods trigger the growth of arthritis.

Top 4 food items that should be avoided

1.     Salt and Preservatives

Foods that contain excess salt & preservatives in them trigger the growth of arthritis. But how? Basically consumption of excess salt leads to inflammation in the joint. Having lesser amount of salt in your meal will help you manage arthritis in a better way. Eat foods that have lesser amount of sodium in them.
