    Default Flare triggers due to food?

    Everyone with Lupus is different. Some people can eat certain foods and be fine, while others flare. I have Lupus nephritis, does anyone know if shellfish is allowed to be eaten? Lobsters, crabs for example? Ive got the knowledge to know oysters are a no-go, but not sure about the rest? Thanks guys

    I'm not a doctor and I can't answer this from a medical point of view, but if you google Lupus Nephritis & Shellfish or Kidney Disease & Shellfish it seems that most of the links would not advise it b/c of the protien spills. That said, you should probably just ask your doc for their opinion since they know your body and lab levels and will have a clearer idea of what the right answer for you is. Good luck - I know that I LOVE shellfish and would have a hard time giving it up too.
    As long as this body works, I am going to enjoy life to the fullest for each second of every moment that I can.
