Highly sensitive C Reactive Protein is a marker (indication) for overall inflammation.

For the last 5 years, my C Reactive Protein score was 7 (VERY HIGH).

My doctor told me not to worry about because I have Crohn's (in remission for 20 years), and that's an auto immune disorder, so he attributed the elevated CRP to that.

However, my last CRP score dropped dramatically from 7 to 1.9 !!!!

There were 3 obvious things that changed for me in the last year.

1. Elimination diet (trying to find the source of terrible skin rash, brain fog and muscle issues).
2. Corrected a vitamin D deficiency (got it from 18 to 55).
3. Started taking magnesium supplements.

Interestingly, in the last year, I got only 1 migraine (I used to get 1 or 2 a month) (but that very well might have been solved with the magnesium supplements).)

Question: by chance, has anyone noticed a drop in CRP after going MSG free?

Just curious,
Mike

Came across this old postng, but find it interesting and we look for answers for our son who also has had high CRP, sometimes very high, but always at least higher than normal.

He is now on oral steroids and has not been reacting to 2 foods he has in the past (as least not as bad).
