    Well, I have heard soy is bad for you, as well as alphalpha sprouts, and to limit nightshade veggies and red meat... This is just what I have heard...

    Try rice milk! I know some people develop all sorts of allergies with this disease... But, you don't know you have allergies until you try things sometimes... unfortunately...

    I actually use rice milk because I'm trying to stay away from dairy. I think the Rice Dream brand, original flavor is the best. It's a little sweeter and thinner than milk, but overall, not too bad!

    My doctor gave me some copies from a book called Inflammation Nation by Floyd H. "Ski" Chilton, PH.D.
    It focuses on things causing inflammation in connective tissue and other things. It has a large section on diets to help with Lupus. Part of what he has told me to do is not red meat, eat 2 "cold" water fish such as salmon. No diet drinks but suggest a glass of RED wine every 2 days.(wow a plus!)Cooking with Olive Oil and adding flax seed suppliments to my daily vitamins. I have had Lupus for 2 years now. Mine mostly affects the connective tissue between all my joints. So it is like feeling 30 years older when I have flare ups. Changes in my diet are starting to help but it will take time for me to see a great differnce. It also mentions trying to use a Medeterrain diet. I have not read all he has given me yet but will try to get as much of it on here as I can in small portions. My doctor found this book at WalMart of all places. He said it has a lot of good info in it for patients with arthritis, Lupus and other diseases that include inflammation. Hope this helps someone.

    Hi Terry;
    That is basically the same diet that my doctor suggested to me (although he told me to go out and buy a book he suggested - he wasn't nice enough to give me one -lol).
    After making those changes in my diet, I truly believe that it has helped me to maintain my remission (along with lifestyle changes, taking precautions, etc.). I continue to have symptoms and flares, but they are pretty much controlled without additional medications.
    Thanks so much for the information

    Peace and Blessings
