Thanx for the response guys...
what kind of testing should i have done and where? like do i go to an allergist and ask for like a gluten test or a food allergy test?
I dabbled in this for years, every time I got more specific about
Its confusing, so guessing is a great first step, and like mentioned above Ialso did the antii candida diet to when candida was raging. So thats not a anti-inflamitory, its an anti -"feeding the yeast" diet.
As far as inflammatory foods: there are three levels of food reactions: allergy (alergist Dr), antibody forming (regular Dr) and cytokine releasing foods (Leap MRT test). All three are different tests.
I have no food allergies, and have no milk or gluten antibody formation but do have cytokine release from both and a few more, that's what food sensitivity really is..
I first tested skin prick food allergies, then gluten and milk antibodies (blood test), then years later (now) the Leap MRT that cost $350 online or a dietitian. My health plan pays for the dietitian time, not the test. Sugar (cane) is my highest cytokine releasing food item. Corn is second.Turkey is third. Gluten? - surprised its NOT on top, its a little lower. My thyroid labs improved two month leaving out these foods, it should have other positive effects too. I wrote a few posts on this - might find under search.
This takes money and time, I'm committed not 95, but 100% to this. As in athletics, commitment pays back in some form.
Half arse trials will return half arse results- been there done that and learned.
Initial lyme symptoms in late 80's, again with bullseye early 90's. Started ABX 2014, ended in Jan 2016. Flares ended after. Lyme "B gone" as far as I can tell (Cured?). Now: Healing the aftermath-Rebuilding / fine tuning / fixing muscles and still improving nutrition and immune via better gut health. + 20 years of Hashimoto might now be improving.
