I would think that if you are at Cleveland looking for help and they are changing your diet is it a healthy way of helping you instead of using extra drugs. I have found that by changing my diet for fibromyalgia helped more than I gave doctors credit for. Diabetics have to eat a certain way. So do sarcies.
It doesn't hurt to try. I find when I go wayward I feel uckier all over, more pain, forgetfulness, fatigue, malaise, etc.

For me it's being off sugar/flour/wheat that makes a difference in decreasing the prednisone hunger. And I just feel better in general too.

I'll 2nd the last post! Staying away from sugar/refined carbs helps. I try to eat good lean protein, lots of fresh veg/fruit and real whole grains. I also eat the biggest meal/protein load in the morning with the pred. That helps curb the pred effect too.

Delirious posted the sarcoidosis diet that is virtually identical to what I follow. It keeps me on track, along with avoiding stress. The diet and stress avoidance have made a huge difference to me. I am not on any medications but I am coping with the pain, fatigue & brain fog so much better during the last few months. I am looking forward to the results of pathology I have just had done, but have to wait another 4 weeks to see the specialist.

Could not find "Delirious" on the site. Would someone post the recommended diet for Sarcs please.

Sarcoidosis and the Body
Sarcoidosis is a "multiorgan" disease - meaning it almost always involves more than one organ. It's unpredictable and affects different people in different ways.

You can learn about the ways in which sarcoidosis affects the body in FSR's Sarcoidosis and the Body brochure.
