I know. what are you supposed to do tell the doctor to give ya a scratch test on everything? Who would have thought alfalfa sprouts could cause a flare? Here I am thinking I'm doing good stuff me but that would be quite painful! and then there would be life without a hamburger I don't know if it's worth living .
PCP pretty convinced- Lupus , Taking plaquenil,Propranolol, Flexeril,Claritin, Zantac,Ambien,vitamin B-12, multi- vitamin, Lortab. Prednisone 15mg daily added 03/09. Mom of 2 boys 1 and 6. Symptoms: Fatigue, joint pain, heat/sun sensitivity, mouth and nose sores, malar rash, migranes, awful hives, positive ANA, and RF.
Thanks Lynnwood and Jennifer, I thought the protein thing sounded kind of weird but I can eat lintels but but nuts and my colon would not get along at all. I really would like to change some of my habits if only for a couple of months to see if there is a difference. But I am soooo weak and burger king has a 1.00 menu.
Jennifer I am still shaking my head. I'm like you I have been a vegan before. The weight just dropped off. Now it sounds like a death sentence to eat a salad! LOL . I am a tomato halic. eggplant I can live without. One of these days we are going to the doctor and they will give us little green and yellow and purple pills. It won't be medicine it will be breakfast lunch and dinner!
I appreciate the input. People can put anything on the internet but I want to hear it from people that I know before I take it as fact.

Thanks Lynn and JoAnne for clarification. It seems to work out to about 3.5 to 4.5 oz. a day for a 150-200 lb sedentary adult. At least by my calculations, which are generally not very trustworthy.
