Hi, I've been looking into the Paleo Diet ever since my husband's back Dr. recommended it to him for weight loss and to control his diabetes. Ive read that Paleo is good for autoimmune disease, too. I have Hashimotos/Thyroid, Endometriosis, and have a positive AMA-M2 antibody which is associated with an autoimmune liver disease PBC. My liver biopsy showed only a fatty liver, so I'm good for now on that front, but would like to lessen/reverse autoimmune titers/disease. My liver Dr. didn't give me much info except to lose weight. I've read that weight loss should be gradual 1-2 pds a week and rapid weight loss most likely make fatty liver worse. According to my last blood work my thyroid may have reached treatable TSH levels of 8.4. At least I'm hoping the Dr. will start me on meds cause I've been so tired lately and I think that is definitely causing the recent weight gain. I've read other sources that recommend complex carbs that are whole grain etc in certain meat to carb ratios and of course lots of fruits and veggies is ideal, which goes against the ideal of Paleo's grain free. Do you think Paleo would do more harm than good or is there anyone here that has had good success with it for fatty liver and weight loss? I also have high Crp levels and I don't know if just by losing weight if that will lesson the inflammation going on in my body. Im worried about it worsening or causing perhaps other autoimmunity problems. Does the inflammation cause autoimmunity or is the inflammation caused by the autoimmunity? Any advice is appreciated thanks!
