    Hi Brigitte- I hv really been struggling since my LS diagnosis 35 days ago because I have been trying to implement changes to be as healthy as I can be. I hv read alot about a low- oxalate diet being beneficial to people with LS and after 2 bouts with ldney stones, my Dr. Has encouraged it. We read about limiting sugar and carbs and eating more fruits and veggies, but to those of us eating low- oxalate alot of fruits, veggies, beNs, whole grains, etc are off the table. Nightshade veggies are definitely part of this limiting diet. I agree to avoid tgem has shown to be beneficial.

    No-ne should eliminate all nightshade vegetables without doing an elimination test first. Take them all out for a week and then introduce one back for a week and if no adverse effects, keep that one in and introduce another and so on. I found potatoes triggered my worst response so avoid those but eat all the others. We need to be careful taking food groups out and ensuring we have varied vegetables and fruit so as to ensure 100% health smile

      For me anything more than 5-6 mg of oxalates is out , that includes ANY type of potato ( including sweet potatoes), eggplant, and limited tomatoes and tomato products.

      I agree..what I suggest is a food diary..when I was very sick and couldn't eat much I initially used a food diary which helped ..this was before i discoved muscle testing of course! cheesygrin

    I ought to add that my closest friend is a qualified nutritionist who works with cancer patients at the Maggie's centre in Cambridge ( UK) so knows what she is talking about! That is where the information re elimination trial came from.......
