Question: Hi, What foods are good, and not good for bakers cyst and ra artitis?

Answer: A bakers cyst is a fluid filled sac located in the back of the knee. Generally diet does not play a key role in improving this type of cyst. Utilizing ice and anti-inflammatory creams generally are the most effective treatment.

Rheumatoid arthritis however is a systemic disease that affects the joints of the whole body and thus diet can play a key role in this type of joint inflammation. For a complete overview of dietary recommendations visit:
