Nutrition in the presence of the disease should be balanced, contain sufficient amounts of vitamins and trace elements, but calories should be controlled, because gaining weight is absolutely contraindicated in ankylosing spondylitis.
Bechterew's disease (ankylosing spondylitis) is a chronic disease of an autoimmune nature that causes inflammation of the joints (mainly affecting the spine). As a result, the bones that form the joints become completely fused and ankylosis occurs.
Eating in the presence of the disease must be balanced to contain a sufficient amount of vitamins and trace elements, but calories do not exceed the expended energy would otherwise accumulate excess weight, which is absolutely contraindicated in ankylosing spondylitis (with accumulation of unnecessary weight joints are heavily loaded).
Scientists have shown that vegetarians and raw foodists are much less likely to get Bechterew's disease , and people who have switched to such a diet feel much better.
