I just found out that I have early stages of osteoarthritis in my hand. I was hoping to eliminate one food at a time to see what helps. I am wondering if there might be a consensus on which AIP foods are the "worst" offenders for inflammation,... (more)

There are numerous websites on high inflammation foods. Yes, you need to find out what your triggers are but there are some that you would never know. It's best to stay away from the obvious ones that are listed on those sites.

I've been pretty strict paleo for 4 months and am dealing with hormonal imbalances and what I'm pretty sure is chronic inflammation. So many websites (including paleo ones) say to limit red meat as it is inflammatory. However, a lot of posts... (more)

I am thinking that the cause of my high cortisol and ferritin could be hidden inflammation. Is there any test to find out if you have hidden inflammation?

If you were going to get a blood test to measure inflammation would you choose Interleukin 6 or CRP and why?
