People with psoriatic arthritis and other inflammatory skin conditions may need to avoid using certain foods to control the condition.
The Weston A. Price Foundation and the Food and Drug Administration have released a report on the use of low oxalic acid diets, which they say can help improve the health of people with these conditions.
The Weston A Price Foundation, a nonprofit, has been advocating for low oxals as a possible treatment for psorias for more than 30 years.
It says that the diet has been shown to lower inflammatory markers in the blood and help the body fight off infections and tumors.
The Food and Drugs Administration is working on a proposal to update the label for these diets.
The FDA says it is considering the findings and will soon announce what it will do with the proposal.
The FDA did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
This is the latest in a series of reports from the Weston A Prices Foundation that highlight the value of diet in psoria.
The foundation is a non-profit and has raised more than $1.7 million from investors and foundations for research into the health benefits of the diet.
