I was diagnosed 10 years ago and also was put on Plaquenil, which did nothing. I saw a natural pharmacist who recommended eating gluten free. I thought he was insane so I continued the Plaquenil. Finally after having to crawl up the stairs because my knees were so weak, I changed my diet. I can honestly tell you it was the best thing I have ever done. I highly recommend eating gfree.... It SAVED my life :)
Ps- your rheumatologist will roll their eyes.... let them! There are no side effects!
