According to Dr Daniel Wallace, leading Lupus expert and author of the very popular must-read, "The Lupus Book" - Here is a Q&A from an interview with him.
Q – What dietary advice do you give to lupus patients? Are there any particular foods they should avoid, or eat more of? Do you advise on taking supplements of any kind (e.g. vitamins, herbs, etc)?
A – Lupus patients can eat whatever they wish, but I advise 2-3 fish meals a week (fish oil is mildly antiinflammatory) and the avoidance of alfalfa sprouts (seen in salads a lot in California but probably not a problem in the UK) which have an amino acid, L-canavanine, which flares lupus. Patients on steroids need to watch their carbohydrate and fat intake as well.
