Medically Reviewed by Checkmark Medically Reviewed By: Sheela Krishnaswamy

There is no known cure for arthritis. In fact, most treatments for arthritis are aimed at early recognition and prevention. Genetics can increase your likelihood of developing arthritis, as can a strong family history of the disease. Certain diets can improve your symptoms, but it cannot cure arthritis. 

According to the Arthritis Foundation, diet cannot cure arthritis. However, consuming certain foods can help in strengthening your bones, maintaining your immune system and fighting against any kind of inflammation. These foods may also help with pain and other symptoms of arthritis.

A balanced, nutritious diet will eventually prevent further damage to the joints. Changes in diet, such as avoiding food that can increase inflammation, can help with the symptoms of arthritis, which include pain, stiffness, and swelling. Consumption of foods that are rich in Vitamin A, C, and E can prevent further damage to the joints. Also, one must reduce excessive cholesterol consumption if obese to prevent further damage.
