Optimizing Bulletproof Diet For Autoimmune Kidney(!) Condition
I have been recently diagnosed with Nephrotic syndrome (protein in urine + low blood protein levels + elevated lipids + edema of legs).
We did a biopsy 2 weeks ago and it turned out to be a rather nasty one: focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. I was started on glucorticoids (Methylprednisone) a week ago.
I am currently looking into alternative ways to heal myself and minimize risks from the medicines (which are, however, unavoidable).
I have been eating Paleo for years and currently trying to tight it up with an autoimmune protocol (already miss coffee, eggs and some occasional dairy!) to see how it goes.
I would appreciate any advice in regards to Bulletproof / paleo diet for autoimmune kidney conditions. Whether I need to eliminate something else from my diet. Or, on the other hand, increase consumption of some foods.
I primarily follow autoimmune paleo protocol as described here www.thepaleomom.com/the-autoimmune-protocol-aipâ€Ž
In regards to supplements, my doctors takes a conservative approach. I stopped my multivitamin/mineral and obviously all sport supplements (whey, creatine, glutamine). I am taking calcium for the first time (because Prednisone increases its depletion) and D3.
I would appreciate any advice or personal stories in regards to autoimmune conditions! Especially, in regards to kidneys.
Thank you very much!
