Dry skin

With winter here and in full swing, i have had a considerable change to my skin. It is soooo dry. I’ve tried cocoa butter, different shower gels and soaps, coconut oil just to name a few. Anyone have any luck with anything else? I’m desperate for relief.

Keto diet or other diets

So questioning if diets would help with average day to day pain...currently not on one but contemplating Keto diet along with taking up water aerobics, elliptical and other low impact cardio.

Supplements?

Does anyone take supplements like Omega3, Turmeric, or Glucosamine? Do you feel any benefits, or find its just another pill to swallow? Any brand recommendations? Im on the fence.

Me too but I take a combined turmeric and ginger pill. I hear so much good about them so I give it a try, also fish oil.

For those of us who have taken Methotrexate, what was the course of action when ALT went up?

Just made the decision/mistake to check the doctor's office portal. It has been empty since mid-last year. No information at all. Now I see my fall appointment results and lab work that show ALT at 60 which is above the 44 that it should be. Not sure I have ever had that result before. Thoughts?
