I had a decaf espresso the other day, then I had a big flare up the next morning and my gf had to help me get out of bed...

Looks like I'll have to live without coffee, or whatever.

Are you sure it was the coffee? You eat anything else different the other day?

Coffee should be ok?

Hello, wle1:

Regret coffee BEANS are beans and as such, starchy. If not made into espresso, but instead lightly infused, coffee is probably relatively safe. Regret the espresso process suspends too many bean particulates into the solution and these colloids can be really dangerous for us.

Live and learn...

HEALTH,
John

A doctor once mentioned to me that coffee, especially with sugar, tends to irritate the lining of the digestive tract (not sure if the discussion was about stomach or smth else). Since the health of the digestive tract and AS are related, this may be an explanation.

One small study found that coffee may damage the gastroduodenal mucosa in habitual coffee drinkers - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15841908

And another found associations between coffee consumption and inflammatory markers - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15447891

One AS patient reported a remission of symptoms after giving up coffee and alcohol - https://www.kickas.org/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=471446#Post471446
