Since being diagnosed with lupus, I have heard of every diet under the sun to lower my chances of having a lupus flare. However, come to find out, there is no special diet for lupus, despite what numerous online websites, various books, publications and doctors say. Just like in any situation that compromises your health, of course it is recommended that you try to lead a healthier lifestyle. It is encouraged though, that you eat a nutritious, well-balanced and varied diet containing fruits and veggies, whole grains, meats, poultry and fish.
I have been instructed by some to leave out all dairy products and instructed by others to live a vegetarian lifestyle. I am positive that I will find the right diet for me, I just haven’t found it yet. Should you be following a specific diet or nutrition plan for your lupus?
