In psoriatic arthritis, the joints affected may become tender, swollen and stiff, with symptoms usually worse first thing in the morning.
The Psoriasis Association has outlined some common symptoms of the condition:
Swollen sausage-like fingers
Tenderness, pain and swelling over tendons
Nail changes (holes or pits on the surface of the nail)
Reduced range of movements
Lisa Young, professor of nutritional at New York University, said : “Focussing on eating whole unprocessed foods and limiting the amount of processed foods or refined foods you eat is the best approach.
“There are certainly some diet principles that help all patients, but you have to find one that is practical and sustainable. This, along with conventional medications and treatments can go a long way in controlling symptoms.”
