Just a reminder that any changes we make in food, exercise, supplements, or medications *must* be run past our doctors who know more about the interactions of all these things than we do. Especially with these autoimmune diseases, what might normally be good for us might conflict with a medication we are on, and it's important that we don't interrupt a treatment regime that a dr prescribes - it's very easy to throw off the results of a 'trial & error' approach.

Hi Mkayla! - Thanks for posting that.  I have been seeing a doctor at Ohio State who is promoting the same kind of thinking and dietary health - especially concerning the Omega 3/ Omega 6 ratio.   He uncovered my celiac disease and by avoiding gluten and taking supplements (to counter the malabsorption) my lab results are improving, as is my CRP level -which after 4 mos. is still high but heading in the right direction. 

I guess I hoped by correcting the celiac issue, I could "undo" the connective tissue problems/symptoms.  I'm not sure that will happen - but I believe reducing the inflammation in my body will improve my wellbeing.  I mean, I usually feel better after taking an getting to the root source of the inflammation in the first place makes a lot of sense. 

I hope others will investigate your link - it is very much in sync with what my doctor says and current research.   One has to be careful about supplements.  Fish oil can do more harm than good if you inadvertantly buy a cheap brand that isn't purified and may contain more corn oil than EPA......

Take care,


diagnoses:  mono 1972; postviral CFS 1997; fibro 1998; UCTD & osteoporosis 2007; celiac 2009
meds: Plaquenil 400 mg, occasional low dose xanax for sleep aid, artificial tears w/ ointment at night, Advil/aspirin prn and lots of vitamins
