You’re going to have have a replacement for the candy. Perhaps eat a better breakfast with protein and fat to make sure you’re not hungry and then try snacking on slices of cucumbers or something similar and low carb – but breaking the habit on non-stop snacking would be best.

Can you get a second opinion from a different Rheumatologist? Or perhaps Gastroenterologist for the GI infections?

I have lupus and I when I was having almost daily migraines, I did Botox for it. The number of (tiny) injections at one time made me feel sick and I felt pretty bad the rest of that day, but it did work.

I’ve had lupus for 20 years. About a year ago my allergy doctor came across IG deficiencies in blood work – all of them. It was assumed that I had CVID. That info was sent back to my Rheumatologist who gave me the pneumonia booster vaccine to check for response. I did respond so they thought I didn’t need to do anything at that time. 6 months later new blood work comes back with MGUS, follow up on that was crazy high Lambda free light chains. Follow up on that with hematologist who reran the bloodwork because she thought the test might have been messed up. They came back similar. Followed that up with bone marrow biopsy and got a diagnosis of Multiple Myeloma. I was IG deficient because the Myeloma cells were crowding out the other cells. It can be a crazy ride through doctors so definitely find some you trust to work with.

He’s 9 and super skinny. And yes, what works one day doesn’t work the next. And sometimes we have pasta and I start the insulin early and go late with it. For most everyday meals I go with a seasoned grilled or sautéed protein, roasted or steamed vegetables and try to balance out a decent starch with it. However, little cups of ice cream seem almost perfect for stabilizing lows.

You’re right and that’s why I say we don’t follow a particular diet. My son needs to gain weight right now. I pick and choose and we allow him anything, but at the right time. I try to balance out a meal more. So it may be more of a Glycemic Index diet. I use high calorie Keto type items when I need low carbs in the moment but his numbers are high but he needs to eat. 🤷🏻‍♀️ It’s a balancing act for sure.

Haven't tried it, but we don't specifically diet and it's my son that has diabetes – but US News recently ranked Mediterranean diet as the easiest to follow and best for people with diabetes.
