Now that I am thinking about it, I think I forgot to post about starting my vegetarian diet. Anyway, I started a vegetarian diet and will be transitioning to a "plant based" diet soon..which means no meat, no dairy, no eggs, etc. Has anyone else tried doing this as a way to deal with the Lupus?
I started this 4 weeks ago, and I have to say.. I have a bit more energy in the late afternoons and my aches don't seem to last as long once I begin moving. I am anxious for my bloodwork to see if it has actually changed anything. I want to be off the BP meds that I have to take because of the Pred. I would be thrilled just to have normal BP again.
A friend suggested it so I thought..why not? Can't hurt. I will give you an update if my bloodwork shows anything good.
