Contrary to the last poster, eating an anti-inflammatory diet can be dangerous, depending on what medications you are on. Lupus is your inflammatory process on over-drive, your meds are designed to contain the extra activity. Eating anti-inflammatory diet can mess with what the Dr is monitoring, and put your immune system back into overdrive. (Yes, that sounds anti-intuitive, but that's how my Dr explained it.) You should always talk to your rheumy about
any big changes in diet or exercise --
Also, I must say I've *never* heard of "meat causing inflammation". I have had Lupus over 10 years and feel much better when I get adequate protein -- and yes, it's meat, not just tofu and beans.
