Went to my doctor and was telling her about my low carb food plan for controlling my blood sugar for my diabetes and she asked if it didn't help with my arthritis, too.... Got thinking and realized that I hadn't curled up and died when my free Celebrex ran out. Been off it for about 6 months and not so crunchy in the joints department.

Then, the other evening I was watching a movie and just HAD to have a bag of microwave popcorn, right? Next morning I could hardly get out of bed. Doc was right again...

I just hate it when that happens.

lol....Thanks for sharing that Jeannie!! Now I have just one more question. How can you live on low carbs??? Carbs are a primary good group and when my tummy is yucky, which is often from the meds, carbs are the only thing I want. What do you eat typically for lunch and especially for breakfast?

There is a very old book (1970's I think) called "Arthritis What Works" that is primarily a list of prefered treatments-top five surgeries from a doctors perspective-top 5 from the patients perspective, drugs, physical therapies etc.
It has a chapter on Nutrition and one of the things it discusses is Arthritis (Rhuematoid) always gets better in the absence of food. Aparently a ketogenic diet is anti inflamatory. Now granted this was not a scientific study, it was not peer reviewed.
