My friend has celiac disease (I think, its the one where he's violently ill if he eats gluten), is 32 years old, and has been strictly gluten free for the past 16 years.
He's been having carpal tunnel problems for the past 5 years or so, and the doctors are talking surgery if it doesn't improve. He says that fish oil (4 caps ED, unknown dosage) helps temporarily and that the doctor has him on B12 supplements and a multivitamin.
I told him that based on a lot of the stuff I've read, it could be an inflammation issue based on his diet and told him to try ramping up his fish oil dosing and to try to increase the olive oil intake, thinking that they may reduce inflammation and help the problem. I also told him that since he does not get any sun, D3 may help.
Are these recommendations sound? Does anyone have any other recommendations? Any experience with carpal tunnel out there?
