Hello! I was diagnosed a couple months ago. Currently being treated with steroid injections but watching for pressure changes and complications. I am hoping I can avoid needing methotrexate to manage this and wondering if anyone in this group has had experience or seen improvement with changes to their diet (ex. anti-inflammation type foods)

Hi, I was also curious if anyone has had any success or if any research has been done on dietary changes. I have seen some articles about how nightshade vegetables can cause autoimmune diseases.

Hi I tried with a paleolitic diet but I had to suspend, I´m going to start again this month, really needs effort to complete this diet, it´s very strict and if you want results you have to to take serious. This are some links. bye

After being diagnosed with BSCR last year I also discovered an anti-inflammatory diet is strongly suggested. As it turned out I have been consuming an anti-inflammatory diet for decades. It is just one of many good health habits to consider along with good exercise, sleep, weight control, etc., etc., and I don't really think it will change the course, just be supportive. The only real dietary change I have made as a consequence has been to move to use of organic oils (olive, peanut). I don't like the quality/taste of the organics near as much, but did make that switch. I have had significant positive changes in the past two weeks since starting low dose naltrexone (LDN), having refused my ophthalmologist's recs for high dose prednisone and methotrexate.

There is some evidence that diet may help but no scientific proof. There can be no harm in trying to eat healthily, and cutting out inflammatory foods, but the chances are that you will need more than that to get Birdshot under control. More info about diets etc on the Birdshot Uveitis Society website at and on the facebook Birdshot group and Page.
