Ok. So met a very nice doctor in the same practice as my GP. He has RA as well! So first he started to ask me what I understand by RA. And how did I know I had it?😂. So after I updated him on having been diagnosed by consultant who he knows well. He then asked me what drugs I was on. And then did I know what a dmard was. Lol. He finally realised he was talking to someone who knew what they were talking about 😂.
So then a bit of a bombshell as he asked me if I had ever read anything about the Clint Paddison programme! Shock horror lol. Bit give him his due, he has a medical background and scientific research knowledge as I do in dentistry. He did say it was a refreshing change to talk to someone who wasn't overweight and never exercised eating all the wrong food who didn't want him to give them a magic pill to cure them! . So he told me about the theories of diet controlled ra and also good for cholesterol. And how it effects the gut.
So bottom line is he gave me a printout with web sites to look at and a book to get called Food Rules by Michael Pollon.
So over to you lot 😃
