Hi all. I wondered if anyone knew anything about an elevated c-reactive protein possibly being linked with gluten reaction or celiac disease. I was gluten-free for 6 months, had lost 70 lbs over the previous 2 yrs (on purpose) and was exercising 4-5 times a week. Yet on my annual labs my CRP was over 5 which put me in the high risk for cardivascular disease category. I had accidentally eaten something with gluten the night before and was having a terrible migraine and neck pain on the day they drew my blood. CRP is an inflammation marker but up to a certain point is thought to be cardiac related. Really high ones are linked with other inflammation such as arthritis, etc. Anyone have any insights on this?
