Avatar f tn I read Shannieks response concerning the diet she was put on for thyroid and fibromyalgia problems and was wondering if she could share with me. I too have been told I have these problems and have put on weight although I eat little. I have not yet been put on medicine due to the doctor is running a bunch of test and last week I had a biopsey . I am hoping to start the meds this week. Also the hot flashes are almost more than I can stand.
Avatar m tn People with eating disorders, kidney diseases, cancer, autoiimmune diseases, and anemia should not try this diet. A fibromyalgia detox diet means avoiding cheese, transfat, caffeine, chocolates, candies, alcohol, processed meats and restricting use of salt, sugar and fats. Medicines can be usually taken while on detox diet. Before discontinuing any medication consult your local health care provider. Hope it helps. Take care and best luck!
Avatar f tn Hey Mary. Welcome to the forum. We cannot attribute anything to fibro, as fibro (Fibromyalgia Syndrome) is a syndrome of symptoms and on it's own it is not a cause by definition. It is most likely a combination of causative factors that is responsible for fibro and any symptoms that arise related to this. Highly suspect are underlying infectious conditions and other environmental factors including diet, trauma,injury, heavy metal exposure, stress, etc.
620060 tn?1235515791 Diet is very important for people who are chronically ill. Of course it is difficult sometimes for us to eat a healthy diet, because we are often too sick to cook ! Anyhow, I highly recommend this article by Garth Nicolson, Ph.D. "Dietary Considerations for Patients with Chronic Illnesses and Multiple Chronic Infections" http://www.prohealth.com/library/showarticle.cfm?
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia over 10 years ago. About one year ago, after all of my cancer treatments were finished; I began to experience the muscle pain and chronic fatigue again in a big way. I have not been able to shake it. I have changed my diet. No soft drinks, no artificial sweeteners, and, a vitamin/anti-oxidant juice every day. I also excersize 3 to 5 days a week. Nothing is helping!
Avatar n tn My mom told me about a way that she was hearing about. It was a low glycemic diet. Basically what that is is you eat any protein, any fat(vegtable fat prefered)and the only carbs you eat(but you eat as much as you need to)are carbs that don't raise your blood sugar..most are green and have a lot of fiber. There are other foods but thats the basics. Anyway, 2 weeks into doing this, my FMS symptoms disappeared. My question is, if its this simple, why isn't this a known thing?
653138 tn?1258572904 but only in the last year take metformin ( 2x 1000mg) and spirnolactone (2x 100mg)- i have heard that low gylcemic index helps with that, i am allergic to fish, but eat beans, and occasionally eat chicken ( against eating animals) but some time i just crave meat. are enriched wheat products- ok to eat, i know whole grain is better.
3202069 tn?1345404482 I have had fibromyalgia for about 8 yrs maybe longer. It is very hard to deal with. My legs bother me alot. I am on pain meds and eating certain foods make it worse. I go to an Integrative doctor Steve Windley. I would say that Diet and exercise help the most. Stretching is very important. My doctor told me that alot of Carbs cause the body to be inflamed. I also know that soda causes me to hurt all over. I get tightness in my legs and calves. I used to have alot of shoulder pain.
Avatar f tn What are the common symptoms of fibromyalgia of this illness? What kind of pain do we suffer from it?Which part of the body being attacked?
Avatar f tn A proper diet is key to overall health in general...not just for FMS. Due to multiple chemical sensitivities involving FMS there are some foods that can irritate the symptoms. The only sure way to tell this would be to delete a substance, see if one feels better, then add the substance back into the diet to see if one feels worse. If you suspect food allergies, testing can be done (but this is painful and can be quite lengthy).

1403717 tn?1280988253 We followed the diet strictly for a few months so we could tell if it helped. After that, we allowed ourselves to go out to eat and not worry about the diet every once in awhile. I have found that when I am on the diet my pain is greatly reduced and that when I ignore the diet and eat something I shouldn't, my pain level goes way up. It is a difficult and/or expensive (depending on how you go about it) diet to follow.

Avatar n tn Currently I am on cymbalta 60mg at night, and sometimes zanaflex or passionflower to relax my muscles. I also eat very healthy. My diet consists of vegetables, fruit, carbs, organic dairy products, beans, protein, and is meat-free. I don’t try not to eat any artificial anything such as no artificial sweeteners and no artificial butter, etc. I only drink the one-cup of coffee in the morning and all water the rest of the day.

Avatar f tn You didn't mention the type of diet you were on but the Paleo diet has shown good results in treating these autoimmune disease. You can google paleo diet and get the information. Good Luck.

Avatar f tn As far as a diet for Fibromyalgia, it consists of a healthy diet of fruits, vegetables and for me, I only eat chicken or turkey and no red meat or pork. I also stay away from foods containing white flour and sugar as both promote inflammation. Problematic foods for some seem to be wheat, corn, milk and milk products and eggs. Also the elimination of MSG, aspartame, caffeine, and processed foods are important.
470168 tn?1237471245 I have Fibromyalgia, and have recently started to treat this through diet as advised by a private nutricianist I am seeing. This has had a very beneficial effect on my health. The diet involves removing all sugar, alcohol, simple carbs from my diet and eating something sensible every 2-3 hours to regulate blood sugar levels. When I keep to this diet I feel well and the symptoms of Fibromyalgia diminish and my blood sugar levels out normal.
Avatar f tn I was recently told by someone that works with fibromyalgia patients that a gluten free diet could lessen my symptoms. Just trying to figure out what has or not has gluten has been confusing and a bit discouraging. But I am willing to try it if it works. Has anyone tried it? What were your results?
