Now, any dentist will tell you that eating a huge amount of sugar is bad for you – and that goes for absolutely anyone! However, people with Lyme Disease are affected to a much greater extent when they consume large amounts of sugar, and it often means that in order to reduce their symptoms, they have no choice but to cut out as much sugar as possible. Some people go completely sugar free and even avoid foods that have natural sugars occurring in them such as fruit, whereas others will just make sure that they don’t binge on food and drinks with lots of added sugar.
No matter how you go about it, Dr Paige Woods offers those with Lyme Disease the same advice that she gives all of her patients: cutting out sugar should not mean just removing things from your diet – you should make sure that you replace them with something healthy! When you focus on just all of the things that you can no longer eat or drink it can be hard to remain strong, so make sure that you enjoy sugar-free alternatives so that you can enjoy your food and help your Lyme Disease.
