Suggest Dietary Treatment For Familial Mediterranean Fever

Hello. At the age of 14 I began to experience very severe and excruciating pains Throughout my abdomen. I had been in and out of the hospital more than I could keep count and no doctor was able to help me or new what s going on until I was 24 years old when I was clinically diagnosed for having Mediterranean fever. Colchicine short amazing results before I used to have a attcks once or twice a month that would last 2 to 5 days. Just by taking colchicine 30 days my attacks would come only once a year. Now I am back to the severe period of attacks again. And I feel that my choice of diet triggers it. My question is which diet is the best recommended choice for Mediterranean fever disorder? And that s watching the diet truly helps prevent the attacks?
