Update on Savannah: 23 Infusions of biologics, 70 shots of Methotrexate, and too many oral medicines to count later...and Savannah's pain is not so good. Not sure if the medicines have quit working or what, so we are trying something different (and with no negative side effects!). Savannah's juvenile rheumatologist challenged her to go dairy free for three weeks and see if that helps with her inflammation and pain...though her rheumatologist thinks the diet change is "madness" and will not help. Many have said that removing dairy and gluten from one's diet can really help improve one's quality of life and help alleviate pain...even autoimmune related.
Well, we are taking the challenge and stepping it up! We, as a family, are going dairy and gluten free in hopes it will help alleviate some of Savannah's pain and improve her quality of life. I have to say, I would love to prove Savannah's doctor wrong on this one!!! So, we are on day "two" of our new diet plan...I will let you know how it goes!
Any and all advice is welcome on gluten, dairy, or paleo dieting...especially if you have some kid friendly recipes that are dairy and gluten free! Let the diet "Madness" begin!!!
