There is a school of though that some arthritis is the results of food allergies. It looks like your grandfather is allergic to cheese. I have rheumatoid arthritis. Some Dr claim that gluten in foods should be avoided. Stress is another factor. There also is the though that the weather can cause flare-ups. But I have not found that to the case with myself. I take a number of medications and have not had a flare up in some time. So does your grandfather avoid cheese or does he eat it knowing that he will have a flareup. Sometime I just get tired of having the arthritis control my life.
