I have a question for anybody who can help me. My lovely wife who has just turned the big 40 recently had an X-ray on a suspected broken wrist. The wrist was thankfully ok but the doctor noted that she was in the early stages of arthritis. She has also recently begun to experience sciatica, a thing I am very experienced with but she has not had any trigger like a fall or an accident. She does have mild scoliosis of her lumbar spine. Added to this we have recently discovered she is gluten intolerant. I read that this can contribute to arthritis.
My question is can anyone suggest ways we can slow down the development of her arthritis through diet? We are limiting the intake of gluten but its really hard as she is a professional cook and must taste the food to ensure its OK. Unfortunately this means she gets small doses of gluten all day long. Is there a critical point where food intolerances influence arthritis?
I realise you can't give medical diagnosis, just wondering if anyone had made any personal observations which may guide us.
