Melissa at gluten free for good has great recipes and wisdom if you are following this dietary path. Melissa says "The gluten-free diet is the medical protocol for celiac disease. Why not for all autoimmune diseases? Gluten causes inflammation. Decreasing inflammation via diet and lifestyle should be the first step in reducing the impact of the disease, so it makes sense to eliminate gluten.
Right?
Apparently Venus is on a vegan diet to combat her symptoms. There are rumors she’s dabbling in the gluten-free diet as well."

  1. Yes, I noticed a difference right away. Now when I eat something that my body doesn't like I feel it right away. Symptoms depend on the food. It's not just gluten. Best thing is to go on a gluten, dairy and grain free diet for thirty days then start reintroducing foods to see what is bothering you. I stay away from breads and most pasta.

  2. I generally stay away from gluten and notice right away when I do eat it. I try to stay away from dairy and eggs as well and limit sugar as much as possible. One thing I've found is doing hot yoga helps me tremendously. I highly recommend it for fellow Sjogren's sufferers!

  3. I was DX'd with Sjogrens & RA 2 years ago. I've been G'free for over 17 months & I'm feeling fantastic. However I have continued to take plaquinel and pilocarpine, & use eye drops, everyday too. But I feel good! No flares, & not many aches or pains. I highly recommend going G'free with Sjogrens & all of the AID DXs

  4. I was diagnosed with Sjogrens nine years ago and I am 48. I was miserable, exhausted, my hair was falling out in clumps and then I went on a gluten free diet. I have been gluten free ever since. I have never been on any medication, don't use eye drops or anything else. Just recently I noticed that I would have a reaction to alcohol, so I switched to potato or Tito's vodka if I want a drink, or wine and I am fine with that. The only thing is over the last couple of years I have developed pretty bad osteoarthritis in my hands and I know it is from inflammation, so I have decided to try a completely grain free diet for 30 days and see if this helps. Exercising helps me a lot also, cardio and weights to keep myself strong and maintain a healthy weight.
