|Keep a Lupus/Food Diary!|
After keeping a "Lupus Diary" for the past 3-4 months I have noticed many different things regarding my diet.
Contrary to what some of our rheumatologists believe, our diet DOES influence how our bodies feel with lupus!
For example, if you ate too much candy, and did it repeatedly, you would get a toothache/cavity. So why shouldn't the same rule apply to us? There are many foods that can help reduce our lupus symptoms, but there are also foods that make our lupus symptoms flare up! The only way to know which foods are having what affect is to keep a "Lupus Diary". Keep track of what you eat and when, that way when you feel a pain, or if you're feeling good you can make a note of it and know what you ate that day! It's that simple!
