Hi sometimes it is a bit like what came first the chicken or the egg as Flares & infections seem to go hand in hand.
it is a good idea to keep a log book eg date of first symptom for both infection & flare also any other things you may think are relevant what you ate stress ect
Be vary careful not to cut out too many foods as being vegetarian you can become vitamin deficient easily I was veg for a number of years but could not get the balance right and was getting infections and anemia so gradually reintroduced more food groups.
