When my 15 year old was in the hospital someone sent us an article about anti-inflammatory diets. It is hard at 15 (and would be for me) to be motivated to change your diet drastically, to give up entire food categories that you like, if you can't tell if it would really make a difference.

My daughter's lab work is normal now (except protein in the UA-+1 or trace) and the creatinine/protein ratio(I think that is the name of it) which is 1.1. Also B cells are 0 from rituximab. And she feels great. It seems like it would be hard to tell if the diet was helping anything.

How do people know that these diets are helping?
