You’re welcome. It is very difficult for a person with the inflammatory disease to separate fact from fiction or to relate foods eaten with pain since we eat meals with more than one food. Many people unwittingly eliminate healthy foods thinking specific foods are triggers for their arthritis.
New research suggests that the Klebsiella microbes found in the bacteria in the large bowel might be the trigger factor for ankylosing spondylitis. It has been suggested that reducing the number of bowel bacteria which feed on starch for growth would reduce the amount of Klebsiella bacteria. A low starch eating plan would reduce the eating of bread, rice, pasta, potatoes, cakes, cookies, and pie may decrease inflammation and symptoms, but the evidence isn’t final yet.
