Interstitial granuloma annulare-need paleo help!

Answered on October 05, 2014

I have been primal for last 2 years with some cheats like ice cream or pizza but not often. I'm 64 and mostly sedentary. Started to have severe back pain on waking and shoulder MRI showed severe spinal arthritis and degeneration. Noticed a rash under my arm about 3-4 months ago, and then a strange blotchy discoloration on my upper thigh, thought it was from a heating pad i had been using for my nightly bladder spasms. Wow i sound really unhealthy! Anyway was dxd with severe leaky gut a few months ago. I had taken PPIs last ten years until paleo. The rash is now covering my thighs, sides of my waist and both armpits going up under my arm. It does not itch or weep, sometimes burns. Biopsy said interstial granuloma annulare,(interstial means deep in the bottom layers of dermis) with no cure, but derm said UV light tx might help after 30-50 times and the tx might cause other problems ( i'm light skinned and burn easily). Any way i went off the 2000 mg niacin i'd been taking for years, eliminated all carragean and make my own coconut milk,elim eggs, and all dairy. I have been making my own fermented vegies. Off all coffee. Online search reveals nothing- any ideas out there.? It appears to be spreading luckily its just visual vs uncomfortable

Sorry i wasnt clear- i tightened up my diet to an autoimmune paleo after receiving the diagnosis. Ive been taking d3 from 6-12 grams per day. I take vit K but no A. What is your thinking on this being a culprit?. Im probably going to start the fermented fish/ butter oil from Green Pastures.

I tried that but it didn't make a difference.  I have ga but not the deep kind.  Sometimes it's better Sometimes it's worse.  Ga usually disappears in women when they are pregnant so it may be hormonal.  I'm fixing to try paleo autoimmune.

That's a weird one. If this happened since changing your diet, have you tried rolling back to a previous working version? Maybe you're reacting to a food or supplement. Could you have unbalanced vitamins D and A?
