there is a lot of information online (functional medicine) saying that certain foods i.e. gluten and lactose can be triggers to some people and cutting these out of your diet can be beneficial to reduce symptoms. has anyone tried this with any luck?
I've found that sugar tends to be a trigger for me... (I am not diabetic/pre-diabetic)
I cannot eat pork. It is my trigger. I haven't kept a diary like I should have. I have no issues with tomatoes...seafood or anything else right now. Doctor told me I have to be extra careful because I have 3 other autoimmune disorders.
Keep a diary
Dany...sadly, you’ll get the exact same result with turmeric u got with gluten and dairy free....
No, she may actually have celiacs disease , but that a true genetic disease causing a true allergic ( not a food sensitivity) reaction. A biopsy of the small intestine villi via upper endoscopy is the gold standard diagnosis test . No blood test exists that can prove true celiacs disease. Of course always follow the advice of ur doctor. Best wishes
Ive tried it all as well. Gluten free sugar free and soda and sweetener free nightshade free will help some but not sure it helps RA. But the healthier you are the better for fighting disease. Maybe do a food allergy test and avoid those foods. 🤗
Food allergy tests are a joke, in my opinion. The American Dieticians Association has said they will not recommend them.
I had one done once years ago, said I was allergic (actually they say sensitivity, cause the misleading test does not actually determine a true allergy) to various foods that I never ate. Know biochemically it is scientifically impossible to be shown to be allergic or sensitive to a food u never consumed. These HAS to be at least one prior ingestion in life to elicit a “sensitivity” response. There’s a reason medical insurance plans don’t pay for $450 food sensitivity testing. But functional med docs luv them, as they get $450 from patients for a test that costs only a few dollars to run. Of course always follow the advice of ur doctor.
