My inflammation test results

Got these today. Good news!

Tested c-reactive protein back in aug 2011 and it was 0.63. (while this is within "least risk" results range per the lab, my naturo wants it as close to zero as possible). In Jan, after losing 22 pounds, it was 0.70. He also checked the SED rate, which was 5 (range of 0-20)

This prompted the allergy testing in Feb (since weight loss often reduces it, the fact that it hadn't led to digging deeper for the cause). Positive allergy results to egg, milk, sunflower, cashew, and garlic.

Cut these foods out of my diet for the past 4 1/2 weeks, and retested.

CRP of 0.12 and SED of 2!!!!!

He said the crp number is about as low as you can get it, and would like to see the SED a bit lower, but is very pleased with the change.

Now, it's entirely possible that JUDDD has played a part in those numbers going down as well as removing the allergens. No way of knowing how big a part each played.

But it is so rewarding to see changes like that, especially when the effort to make it happen has been so difficult

No PJ, I haven't been taking anything extra.

Thanks for the jumpy guys. Some of these food changes have been really hard, and it would have been really tough if there hadn't been any change.

What's interesting, is that I had no outward symptoms that I had food allergies. And if I'd been seeing a regular doc, they'd have looked at my cholesterol/inflammation markers and simply put me on a statin. Thanks to my naturopath, we are getting to the bottom of what is CAUSING the numbers to be high (and also causing my adrenals to be in the tank, for which my reg doc wanted to put me on an anti-depressant), and cure it, rather than simply put a band-aid on the symptoms.

We'll retest my cholesterol in a couple months to make sure it is coming down too. He feels that's higher than it should be due to the allergies too.

Tina, I am thrilled for you and after the way I have felt (whine whine) the last couple of days, I feel ashamed cause you have really been through it. You certainly came out a trooper though. You're awesome.

Aww, Phyl, no need for that. We all have our challenges, and just because someone else has different ones than you, that doesn't minimize what you are going through! Lots of people have way worse things than I have to deal with too. I did a fair amount of whining right after finding out about my allergies, and dumped all over the JUDDD BUDDDs about it. LOL

Tina, I am delighted to see the success you are having. I know it has been tough sometimes cutting out so many foods, but you are doing so well.

Big congratulations.

I was so very happy to read this exciting post, Tina! Whether your improved health and labs are the result of eliminating some foods from your diet, or from being on this fabulous JUDDD way of eating, or a combination of the two, it is wonderful news!

And we do know for certain that JUDDD is a *healing* way of eating, so I expect this will continue for you. Glad to read this happy news. Thanks for posting!

Fantastic, Tina! I'm so thrilled that you were able to see such amazing results; I know it has been tough. It's really nuts to think that we could have hidden allergies like this wreaking havoc while we are none the wiser.
