Ah, Mr. Borrows, nice to see you here! I have actually read Rosacea 101 and I thought it was quite informative. I was not referring to you, but rather to the natural inclination of most rosacea sufferers: over-reductionism. We all want to narrow complex things down and we all go to far with it sometimes. And, there are many people out there selling us rosacea suffers snake-oil, so I always try to remind people not to become fixated on one "cause" or trigger because then they'll miss other things that are happening in their body and mind due to that tunnel-vision. Concerning the inflammatory protein study, I was referring to the Gallo study and I do hope they go further with it. As for carbs, I still keep mine low but I don't obsess about it. I think the amount of stress caused by obsessing out-weights the benefits of abstaining from small amounts of "goodies". That's how it is for me, though, it is different for others. Also, I only have trouble with gluten and refined cane-sugar. The others don't bother me much. The only way I found that out was by keeping a log. It was not some detailed Nasa-type log but enough for me to get some clarity. This is a tough disease....so it's hard to generalize. It basically comes down to experimentation, and that's why I think it's important to keep a log and to keep tunnel-vision at bay. Best of luck to all fighting this nonsense.
