Health effects of eggs on people that have arthritis

According to Mayo Clinic, arthritis is a common disease that can cause pain, swelling, stiffness, and inflammation in different muscles and joints. Reports say that there are more than 100 different types of arthritis. The most common types are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Many people with arthritis have wondered if there are ways to lessen some of the painful symptoms and improve their overall quality of life.

Some research has shown that making a few changes to your diet can help you deal with the symptoms of arthritis, especially rheumatoid arthritis. And one change to your diet might be to stop eating eggs because they can cause inflammation.

According to WebMD, specific research on how eggs affect inflammation and arthritis symptoms is still limited, and the question of whether or not arthritis patients should eat eggs is still being discussed.

Eggs are known to have both anti-inflammatory and pro-inflammatory properties, which means they can help or hurt joint inflammation.

Since arthritis causes inflammation in the joints, many people think that foods that cause inflammation, like eggs, should be taken out of their diets. Eggs, on the other hand, are very healthy and can help reduce inflammation. So it's up to the person with arthritis if they want to eat eggs.
