Let's talk about SUGAR Shall we ? I eat a LOT OF SUGAR. Is it possible it is causing inflammation?? Cuz if it does ... I got a big problem
Sugar, Insulin and Inflammation Where does inflammation fit into this picture? https://www.thepaleomom.com/why-is-sugar-bad/
Big time. I slowly eliminated it, as it was feeding my Candida issue, and over time I slowly stopped craving it. Now, if I have even 1 small sweet, I am in a lot of pain the next morning. I am amazed at how much! I never knew until I eliminated it, and "treated" myself to a treat, then woke up the next day! It's actually not worth eating any of it! The pain outweighs the brief fix of the sweet. Wean off slowly to decrease withdrawal, then cut it out and try it for yourself. You will be amazed!
Is stevia ok
Yes. It is derived from a plant and does not have the same effect. I use Truvia in my coffee with no issue at all. The other fake sugars stay away from... Nutrasweet, SweetnLow, and Splenda. All poisons!
Jacqui Redmond I use trivia also
sugar will. Make u flare... U can have steva... İts healthier... Or coco sugar... Or honey
I just gave up sugar and anything made with sugar. Not an easy decision but being in pain is harder. Sweet leaf, stevia, honey... These are all things I may add a little of if I need something sweet. So far so good.
I believe in "moderation in all things" so I try not cut out too many things out of my diet.
Sugar is poison even if you do t have RA. Good to eliminate it for so many reasons but yes, it’s the worst inflammatory agent of the lot!
Sugar is a major inflammatory for me, so is dairy and meat. I'm pretty good about not needing dairy or meat but I have a hard time avoiding sugar. If you figure out a way to stop eating sugar let me know.
Sugars, carbohydrates, alcohol- the less I have the better I feel. Had a soda the other day and began limping within an hour due to swelling. Try everyday, every meal to avoid as much sugar as you can. Start small and be easy on yourself- this is a serious and readily available addiction. Good luck
Not only possible but I'd go w definitely.
So yesterday was my birthday, had and last night my jaws and wrists were killing me... All night even with pain meds
Happy Belated Birthday!
I can’t imagine anything that would cause more inflammation than sugar. It took me 2 years to cut it out of my diet (I still eat whole fruit).
try the whole 30 diet!!!! i’m a nutrition major and i spoke to an old professor after my diagnosis who recommended the whole 30 diet. İ’m on day 14 and i’m so glad i did it
Sugar, grains and dairy are my worst trigger foods. Along With much more but they are really bad! I can do dark chocolate but not milk chocolate ...
I went on the keto diet, eliminating sugar, cold turkey, almost immediate improvement... And that diet quickly removes sugar cravings, and the other big side effects are major weight loss, and the brain fogg from the meds goes away.
Big time. I was recently traveling with my complicated dietary needs and managed to stay pain-free the entire time. Until my flight home was delayed and I got stuck overnight at SFO. I ordered a coffee which had sweetened almond milk in it and, at the time thought what the heck, I’m doing so great, I’m invincible. Boom. I’m on Day 5 of a terrible flare. So yeah, sugar is our worst enemy. But xylitol seems to be fine!
I had 1/4 of a Mountain Dew and I felt it in my knees and hands. İ cut out sugar from my diet but sometimes u just want a lil taste, n what’s crazy is how quick u can feel the difference, the pain
I totally feel you on that. Dr. Pepper for me. But I always regret it
Replace with monk fruit. Taste like sugar and all natural. I buy lukanto brand.
You will find it easier than you think to give up sugar once you notice the difference with your RA. I hardly have sugar now and when I do I get terrible headaches and foggy brain. Good luck!
Sugar is a huge trigger for inflammation!
Glucose is the enemy
Yes. Sugar is poison
Sugar freds cancer cells and we all have them.
Sugar carbs and grains push me straight into a flair.
Absolutely! Sugar is one of my worse triggers.. I use honey if I need to add a sweetener to something. It makes a huge difference
Remember sugar it's not only, candies or desserts. Remember plantains, potatoes and another types
Inflammation feeds on sugar.
You have a big problem
Yes SUGAR IS A BIG problem !!!!
Sugar is the worst!! Definetly poison.
