Have rheumatoid arthritis, rising ESR levels, severe weight gain. On Saaz, nucoxia, celor plus. Suggest diet changes for reducing ESR levels?

Hi, I am suffering from Rheumatoid arthritis for the past 3 years and despite continuous medication, my ESR level kept rising. It is presently 90 with rheumatoid count of 230. Currently, I am on medication of SAAZ, NUCOXIA and CELOR-PLUS. Earlier, I was on Nucoxia, Wysolone, Lefrumide and Methtroxate. Kindly suggest what changes in diet can reduce my ESR levels. I am overweight due to these medications, and have gained around 12 kgs in the last 3 years. An early reply would be highly appreciated.

I have studied your case,
For rheumatoid you need to avoid high protein non veg food,alcohol, avoid spicy and oily food stuff.
Take fresh calcium and vitamin rich food.
Take calcium and vit D as osteoporosis is common in RA
You need to continue anti rheumatoid medication to avoid deformity of joints.
ESR suggest chronic disease ,you don’t have to worry about it.
