Despite what you’ve read, there is no established diet for lupus. There are certain foods that may improve life while living with lupus, and that are certain foods that can worsen your flares and how you feel.
To help you learn a little bit more about what you should and shouldn’t be eating, we’ve put together a list of foods that you might want to avoid if you’re a lupus patient (source: Healthline.com website):
1. Go from red meat to healthy, fatty fish
Being high in fat, red meat is not the best type of protein to eat, as it can lead to heart disease. Switch from red meat to fatty fishes, like tuna, salmon, sardines and mackerel. These types of fish have plenty of Omega-3s, which are polyunsaturated fatty acids that help protect against heart disease and stroke.
