Another person that had Lupus went Gluten Free and felt better....

Ok I realize it's time to give this a rest now and on to other health issues! But had to sneak in one more....are you seeing a pattern here...checking for Celiac Disease is a great idea if you have Lupus or any other autoimmune disease. But EVEN if the test comes back negative, they say you don't have Celiac Disease remember that up to 7 of 10 cases can be false negatives so try a GF diet anyway and see if you feel better. Maybe an elimination diet too or an IgG test to see if you are allergic to anything else as well.  Remember there  are good and healthy GF foods and GF junk foods too. A GF nutritious whole foods diet can be extremely healthy, it's when you start replacing the cookies, breads, cakes, anf chips etc with GF unhealthy versions with high sugars, salt and empty starches that the GF diet turns unhealthy. I will talk about how to create a super healthy GF diet more soon!
