Answer

Answer

A low-fat, high-carbohydrate, high-fiber diet is recommended in pregnant patients with RA. Fish oils in moderate quantities can be taken during pregnancy. Over-the-counter (OTC) herbal remedies should probably be avoided. Routine oral calcium and vitamin D supplementation is recommended.
