Rheumatoid arthritis and Type 2

I have rheumatoid arthritis and Type 2 Diabetes. is there a link between the two. and how can i keep my blood sugar under control when i have a flare up?

I have psoriatic arthritis (which is a different kind of inflammatory arthritis) and Type 1. I know there is a link between Type I and RA because they are both autoimmune conditions. I find that I can control my pain with diet. I think there is a strong link with food allergies and arthritis, in particular wheat and red meat cause inflammation in the body which aggravates arthritis pain. Have you tried experimenting with what you eat to see if it makes a difference? In terms of BG control, cutting out grains, and wheat in particular, can really help both arthritis and BG control. I use almond flour instead of wheat flour and it’s very low carb. You have to read the labels, though, wheat is in EVERYTHING.
