Hi Navy. I'm eating gluten free, refined sugar free and dairy free for about 3 months now. My main carbs are rice, sweet potatoes and some white potato. I try some french fries every now and then. Eggs are iffy, they seem to be fine if they are used in a recipe, but not always great if I eat them on their own. I eat spinach and broccoli, and chicken, turkey, bison and fish.
So everything is pretty healthy, but that also means low calorie. From what I can determine, I eat about 1700-1800 calories a day which I know isn't much but I can't seem to eat more without eating like, all day constantly, which probably isn't good for my gut. I'm 5'9" male and 130 lbs.
BTW, depending on the results of my liver test I might be stopping 100mg of 6MP and starting 25mg injections of MTX. So I might be calling on you, if you're up to it (sorry that you're in the hospital). From what I've read so far taking 1 to 3 mg of folic acid and drinking lots of water should help?
Dx'ed in 1999. No surgeries.
Current meds: 100 mg 6MP. Just finished prednisone taper. Udo's Choice Probiotics (30 billion).
Betaine, digestive enzymes, Candicin (oil of oregano capsules), Beta Sitosterol.
