Is gluten linked to arthritis

The Connection Between Gluten & Arthritis

Can gluten cause arthritis?  Since writing the international best seller, No Grain No Pain, one of the most common email questions I get is whether or not gluten can cause arthritis?  Can gluten cause RA?  Can gluten cause Lupus?  Can gluten cause fibromyalgia?  Can gluten cause osteoarthritis…psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis…

Can gluten cause arthritis?

The simple answer is YES.  In the following video, I address this question in great detail.

Gluten Sensitivity Commonly Contributes to Arthritis

If you look at the archives in Gluten Free Society, you will find a number of articles, research studies, and case study successes linking gluten to several different forms of arthritis.  I have included several links below to help you navigate to your condition easily:

Because most forms of arthritis are autoimmune in nature, please make sure that you take the time to watch this video on the mechanisms of autoimmunity.  Remember that gluten can be a trigger for arthritis, but there are many other triggers as well you will want to become familiar with.

If you are struggling with arthritis symptoms with no end in sight, and you have not read No Grain No Pain, you should.  Apply the diet in chapters 7 and 8.  If you have read and applied the NGNP diet and noticed dramatic improvements, please comment below.  Your story might help someone else find an answer to their health problem.

Always looking out for you,

    I’ve been diagnosed with “eczema” from eating wheat bread. I developed a body rash that looked like I was scalded. The rash started the day after I ate gluten and lasted 2 years. I developed MRSA, systemic candida and strep. At one point they thought I had polymyalgia rheumatica with positive rheumatoid factor,ANA and elevated sed rate. Then they decided I must have celiac disease even though my EGD was negative but every time I consume any gluten, even small amounts, I get the rash. Now, I’m starting to react to dairy as well. It seems that my gut lining is damaged somehow and I wonder if all my problems are glyphosate related. I have joint and muscle pain, eye pain and photo sensitivity and am extremely fatigued.

    How can I stop further joint damage? I have been able to relieve my inflammation (especially in the morning) by drinking tart cherry juice every day. And, also, eating a handful of cherries when in season. The inflammation goes away after about a half hous and my joints are much more flexible, especially my hands. I don’t take any medications for my arthritis since they all contain acetomytophine. .This substance is in ALL pain medications in the US, but has been banned in Europe. I would appreciate any help you could give me to stop further joint damage. I’m a 64-yr old female. Thank you.

    Mary C Estrada- are the potatoes fully ripe or could they be still somewhat green? That coukd make a difference.
    Many potatoes at harvest are sprayed with Glyphosate if allowed by non-organic handlers!

    Hi Doctor, thank you for all the good work
    During the summer I had poly arthritis so it’s called
    in Paris I was hospitalized 2 times for 2 weeks
    I couldn’t walk anymore.
    I was eating organic, gluten-free, no processed food
    since many years. Unfortunately I didn’t know about
    lectins and peanut butter. Been vegetarian I was
    eating a lot of zucchini, tomatoes etc I asked the
    doctors how could I have inflammation when my diet
    was so clean.
    They say that the inflammation was probably
    caused by a bacteria. I think it’s important to say
    that my mother died the week before I fell sick.
    I refused to take the Methotrexate e started to
    Eliminate certain foods and take some supplements
    I am fine now, my knee only is still weak
    It’s hurting sometimes.
    Last week I did 4 days water fast and the pain has gone

    I was diagnosed with giant cell vasculitis 3 years ago. In the beginning they said it is RA, then vasculitis. The Test Results are inconclusive, they diagnosed by symptoms. They treated me with steroids (btw, I have less problems with methylprednisolone not prednisolone) and chemotherapy. I was on steroids more than 3 years and on methotraxate almost 3 years. Now I have terrible side effects (gastritis with terrible pain, liver and other digestive problems) after each injection of methotrexate. But when I decreased amount, side effect almost gone but inflammation and joint/ muscle pain increased dramatically. Now they want to put me on Acterma (tocilizumab). There are so terrible side effects for this relatively new drug. I also don’t know anybody who I can talk to. I am on GF, dairy free diet but I also have a lot of sencetivity to vegetable and fruits. It is so difficult to find what I can or can’t eat. Are the people with similar problem?

    I am on gluten-free diary-free diet. Can I include sprouted spelt flour in my diet?

    Sending a wish for Hope and healing to all on this site! For Patty and perhaps for others… Have you considered a Lyme literate doctor? Your symptoms are also those of tick born infection.

    My Scio practioner suggested I stay away from grain and processed sugars and so did my Chiropractor. He injects a solution of salt and sugar into pain full ligaments and tendons . This and a grain free diet and improved posture and pelvic floor muscle exercise have made a Hugh difference. Your talks helped me clarify the need to stay grain free. I will Google migratory arthritis as mine is often in different joints it might just be a dia gnosis to my problem.
    Thank you for your enlightening programs

    Regards Gita (South Africa )
