what is "crp" ?

I eat 100% gluten free. I don't even look at it!

Most of my food "allergies" are really sensitivities. So an occasional indulgence is tolerable.

From what I've read, it seems that inflammation is component of a lot of health problems, including diabetes and CVD. It definitely is for celiac and gluten intolerance, and probably for any kind of food sensitivity or allergies.

I work on gut health by taking probiotics, and eating fermented vegetables. And I assume that not eating grains also helps reduce inflammation.

CRP is c reactive protein, a marker for inflammation. I take pro biotics too, I think they really help. And I try to eat a bit of sauerkraut, trying to heal the system. My fasting number was down and now it's a bit higher, though my afternoon numbers are getting much better. Walking really helps. How do you tell if you are sensitive. My doctor did some tests, and I was sensitive to all the things I eat all the time: almonds, chicken, eggs, dairy, so with celiac what's left?! I eat bacon, avocado, coconut, grass fed beef. Do not understand how it can be eggs, so cruel,but since I've cut back I notice more reaction, wasn't sure it wasn't the carrageenan in the cream, but have mostly switched to goat cheese...don't understand "sensitivity", just know my system is sensitive. And I guess my tummy too.

I found out by having a blood test for sensitivities (not the typical allergy test - I KNOW when I have an allergy, but sensitivities usually are delayed reactions which are hard to isolate).

When you start healing the damage done by celiac, your digestion may improve and you won't be quite so sensitive to some of the foods you are now. But healing won't occur unless you are 100% gluten free (I write this in for someone else reading this post who isn't all that careful about gluten but who needs to be)

Working on gut health is essential I think to reverse the damage done previously. At least for the short term, avoiding EVERYTHING you know you are sensitive to is really important. As you heal you may be able to add in some of the foods now and then.

I agree, not being able to have eggs (like everyone else on this forum, it seems) is a bummer. It's much easier to get around dairy than eggs. (Unfortunately, it's the casein I'm sensitive to and doesn't matter if it's cow's milk or goat's milk (which I don't like, anyway) I get the same reaction to either.)

As I've said so many times.... "You do what you have to do." It looks like you've found a way around your sensitivities - maybe if you look at the recipe section you can find a few other foods to enjoy that would work, or would work with only a few alterations.

non-dairy kefir

I found some kefir (at health-food store) made from coconut which I have now added to my regimen. Doesn't taste bad at all.

Quite the opposite. Dairy other than butter, cream and cheese sends my BGs sky high. I am of the thought that milk is for baby cows.

I can tolerate a little dairy. However, often times I indulge too often and then get symptoms (itchy skin, and here lately, swollen ear canals). so it's back to abstinence for me!

Does anyone with these sensitivities, which I assume create inflammation, have an experience of c-reactive protein test, a marker for inflammation, lowering after gut healing and attention to food sensitivities? I also find my upper tummy is almost always distended? Is that a symptom of sensitivity? I am sturggling so much with the dairy and eggs. Bacon and avocado seem to be the safe foods, not that I don't like them, but hard to believe....and coconut oil in my coffee, and now tea.

Discovered a blog full of dairy-free (gluten-free, egg-free) recipes.
Lexie's Kitchen | Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Egg-Free -

Thank you Petra, for posting this recipe from her blog.

On further look at that site - most of the "goodies" do contain starches and sugars. Darn!

There are still some recipes that would fit into the LCHF WOE so worth a look-through.
