Being vegan, vegetarian, no dairy, gluten free does it help???
As with Eahrend I have also cut out alcohol except I've gone almost teetotal. I've not had anything stronger than a glass of shandy for so long I don't think to mention it in dietary changes. I stopped drinking before I gave up smoking which was sometime in July 2005 or it might have been 2004. I gave up counting after 10 years. Giving up alcohol was before the millennium as I remember a few of my friends inviting me out as their designated driver for the night.
I have cut out a lot of things things that contain oxyalic acid as I read that it can aggravate arthritis. On the rare occasions when I'm tempted even though I've been told I shouldn't, rhubarb crumble is my downfall, there is nothing to compare with it. I don't know if it does contribute to the pain as my worst trigger for causing problems is lifting and/or carrying heavy things, I'm not very good at asking people to move heavy things for me or help me move them. Even my very own Jiminy cricket (my wife) telling me "no" I don't want to feel useless, not able to do things for myself
A few years back I was on an elimination diet. I started out on a very restricted menu. I could only eat a few things, then gradually one food at a time was added to what I was allowed to eat. This method was supposed to determine what was causing inflammation. It didn't really reveal any super inflammatory foods except for sugar & many preservatives.
Im eating more protein for iron.
