Dietary Lectins in Rheumatoid Arthritis

Dr. Cordain,

I have just recently read your article Modulation of immune function by dietary lectins in rheumatoid arthritis and find this is the best explanation of joint problems I’ve been having for the past two and a half years. The attacks I've had are of arthritic characteristics: red hot, swollen and very painful. The attacks are random and becoming more frequent to the point where I have been bedridden. Since reading your article, I have stopped eating grains and now find my joints are beginning to feel much better, so much so that I have stopped taking prescription anti-inflammatory drugs.
