Historically, nutritional therapy for rheumatic disease has been viewed with considerable skepticism by the medical community. However, increasing attention over the past decade has been given to studying the possible role of dietary manipulation in alleviating the symptoms of rheumatic disease. The most frequent serious rheumatic diseases are rheumatoid arthritis (RA), osteoarthritis (OA), gout, and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE); therefore, the focus of the current article will be on current nutritional considerations of these conditions.
