I hope that you are having an energetic and pain-free day.
Today, I am writing to give you a little information about diets for PMR.
Trying to figure out the best way to eat for PMR can be confusing and overwhelming. I hope that by providing you with a brief synopsis, you can figure out what foods will work best for your body.
As you may know, diet plays an important part in controlling the inflammation of PMR. In addition, eating low carb decreases your chances of developing Diabetes, a side effect of steroid use.
In case you are wondering what is the best diet for PMR, I have a bit of information that may point you in the right direction.
It seems that the most popular diets to help with the inflammation of PMR are:
- Auto-Immune Protocol (AIP) Diet
Many doctors do not discuss diet but PMR sufferers have their own ideas about what helps them, and many times it is by modifying diet.
I have found that it is a personal choice regarding diet for PMR. There are many to choose from and some folks have specific reasons as to why they choose a certain diet and what works best in their situation.
I have adopted a combination of the Paleo Diet with a modified AIP diet sprinkled in.
In essence, I follow the Paleo diet and just eliminate a few of the inflammatory foods that bother me.
I can not tolerate the Keto diet due to the high-fat content and my very sensitive stomach.
I have attached an article on foods for autoimmune conditions that may help you to figure out what diet works best for you.
Perhaps you can try out one (or a few) of these diets to find out what works best for you as you navigate this bothersome condition.
From experience, I must say that changing your diet takes some work and time to get used to. It took me about a month to get the hang of my diet but now I enjoy it and don't feel deprived at all. My gut problems, headaches and allergies all improved too. And I lost weight!
So I definitely feel that it was worth the effort to relearn how to eat to improve my health.

Have a great rest of your day!
