    inflammation and sugar

    I started a food diary and just wondering if what I am learning is common.

    I have been told that many of my ailments are from inflammation. Ankle, hip, knee, back ect.
    I was told to start taking care of my gut and it would fix the rest of my body.

    Anyway step 1 was to create a food diary.

    So what I am learning is that very quickly (like within 5 - 10 minutes) of eating sugar, my pain sky rockets.
    And after taking an anti-inflammatory pill my pain goes away very quickly, like 5-10 minutes.

    Yes I know that sugar feeds inflammation and I should avoid it.

    What I am wondering is the timing odd?
    I would not have anticipated sugar or a medication to have that immediate of results.

    During my life I have taken anti-inflammatory pills a few times and really never found them to do much. Until today.

    Just more a curiosity question.

    Yes, I can definitely believe sugar can have an effect that quickly and cause pain if it affects you in that way. Sugar breaks down quickly. I can sometimes feel a sugar rush very soon after I eat it. I have reduced my sugar intake drastically in the past 3 months and I feel much better.

    I would look into the ketogenic diet and taking 4 grams of Omega 3 supplements every day. I haven't found a lot on this forum about it, but there are some websites and good books out there. I have been following it for about a month now and feel great. You can decide if it would be for you. Best of luck!
