Health effects of a low-inflammatory diet in adults with arthritis: A systematic review and meta-analysis

Genel, F., et al.; Journal of Nutritional Science

The aim of this study was to systematically assess the health impact of a low-inflammatory diet intervention (full-diet or supplement), compared to usual diet or other dietary interventions, on weight change, inflammatory biomarkers, joint symptoms, and quality of life in adults with osteoarthritis (OA), rheumatoid arthritis (RA) or seronegative arthropathy (psoriatic, reactive, ankylosing spondylitis or IBD-related), on outcomes assessed in prospective studies within 6 months of intervention commencement. After exclusion of 446 ineligible studies, five randomised and two prospective trials involving 468 participants with either OA or RA were included in the study. GRADE assessment for all outcomes was very low. The authors of the study concluded very low-level evidence suggests that low-inflammatory diets or supplements compared to usual diets were associated with greater weight loss and improvement in inflammatory biomarkers.
