Anyone here with PsA or related immune conditions that has found cutting out certain foods / taking certain supplements / etc to be helpful? Starting to investigate the non conventional medicinal therapies and very open to hearing what’s worked or not for others!

Not as severe as your diagnosis, but I have chronic idiopathic urticaria and have found that increasing vitamin D intake and cutting down on alcohol has helped with the hives.

So glad to hear! What’s been your D intake per day usually? I’ve heard the same for PsA

I was recently diagnosed with PsA and also have lupus. I’ve read stress (lol), winter weather, and alcohol are big PsA triggers and so far I’ve seen these all to be true for me. I have also been gluten free since before my PsA diagnosis (I cut it out bc of the lupus) and removing it from my diet has made a moderate improvement to my lupus symptoms, including pain, mental health, and fatigue (in case that’s helpful).

Super helpful! Thank you! Been on and off with gluten free for over 15 years. Tone to be back on probably

mine is highly correlated with stress. just starting to understand the saying that says "befriend your autoimmune" - for me, it s a way for my body to tell me that it is too much, take a break. a day off or two helps for me. no more meds. eat anything (heard sugar is a culprit, never hurt to cut on your sugar)

Thank you! Totally agree. Stress is a killer. Do you meditate or anything else like that too?

Gluten is linked to many autoimmune disorders. As mentioned by others, vitamin D is extra important for most conditions. Also don’t forget about quality sleep. Work with your doctors but also create a journal to track your symptoms and see if you can make any association to food, stress, weather, or whatever. Best of luck.

Super smart with the journal idea! Thank you and good luck to you too :)

Has anyone done earthquake retrofitting for a house NEWER than 1980? I know it’s a must-do for houses OLDER than 1980. But my house was built in 1988, so it’s not required.

Several contractors provided estimates, in the $40k-$50k range, which seems like a lot of $$$.

Apparently our house has bolts but not enough and not the right kind, plus it needs joist blocking and shear paneling. All to meet codes put in place after our house was built.

Just curious if others have done this.
