What inflammation factor are you talking about
? There is more than one blood test marker for inflammation...
Colitis = inflammation of the colon. Yes, this can be from any cause.
Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn's Disease is an autoimmune inflammation of the colon, and that is probably what they said you did not have.
However, microscopic colitis - same symptoms as Ulcerative Colitis - can be caused by gluten.
And many other autoimmune diseases tend to be made worse from gluten.
And yes, gluten can also impair blood sugar processing.
Might try getting tested through www.enterolab.com
for gluten antibodies.
And then I'd suggest trying a gluten-free diet for a few months (minimum 3 months) to see if it helps. Since the protein gluten is known to promote inflammation in the body, a gluten-free diet may very well help your symptoms improve.
