I have been diagnosed with CLL in the last month. I had high inflammatory markers in my blood prior to my CLL diagnosis for several years along with degenerative joint disease. It had been recommended to me, pre CLL diagnosis, to eat gluten free because it reduces the inflammation in your body caused by wheat and other grains. I did that for 30 days but didn't really notice a difference with pain in my body resulting from inflammation
Questions: 1. Can inflammation in the body cause CLL?
2. Is there any evidence or personal experience in the community that would promote gluten free eating as necessary or desired when living with CLL to slow progression or to promote health?
