Hey! Have you tried IF (intermittent fasting), Keto or Low Carb diet? If so, how are you feeling or any experiences with it?

I've been doing Keto for 4 months and I am feeling incredible. My CRP is now <29! I won't go back to eating sugar, wheat, soy or corn for any reason.

Yay for you!! I followed the wheat belly diet. It’s an amazing program written by a cardiologist. I lost 28 lbs, felt amazing. I hope to lose 5 more lbs.

Intermittent fasting has been easy, but the Keto was difficult because I have young children (6 and 9). I dont want to make 2 meals.... but they dont like many of the recipes. Otherwise, I did pretty good on Keto. I lost 10 lbs in 8 days and felt good.

I am doing the Fast800 diet. I have lost 18lbs. When I began I had been constantly flaring for 9 months, in particular I had pretty much lost the use of my left wrist. I now feel better than I have for a very long time. I have been fasting for 16 hours every day and eating within an 8 hr window.
Who knows if it will keep the inflammation at bay long term. I just hope.

I was already doing low-carb (50 to 100gm of carbs per day) when I was diagnosed, and now I'm scared to ever go back because I don't know how much worse things would get. I'm also vegan, which, again, pre-dates diagnosis.

I'm a type 1 diabetic in addition to having RA and they tell me low-carb vegan is ideal for that condition as well. Soooo I guess I'm low carb vegan for life. I was tempted to try eliminating nightshades because I heard that it helps with auto-immune conditions, but I don't think my sanity could withstand any further dietary restrictions. I was planning on going full vegan keto but my endocrinologist told me that doing keto with T1DM is a bad idea because of the risk of developing ketoacidosis.

TLDR; According to my doctors my diet is helping my RA, but I've been on this diet since before I had RA so I don't really know how much effect it's having.
