Clayjar,

Very smart advice and idea!!  GTF Chromium is doing amazing things for diabetics, so it does make perfect sense that it could help one's skin as well.  I hope it continues to work for you.  If so, you might start a thread about it down the road to alert others if one hasn't been started already.  Awesome discovery.  :)

Paleo seems to affect is the amount of sugar in the blood and increasesd insulin sensitivity. Acne is improved in many on this site with a Paleo diet. There is a theory of "skin diabetes", which seems to make sense.

Have you tried Chromium GTF? It's supposed to regulate insulin sensitivity, thereby improving the skin cell-insulin interaction. It has been a week since I started taking it and my skin has improved tremendously, rather quickly. And I have been eating carbs.

Paleo also tends to mean consuming a lot of beneficial nutrients making supplements unnecessary. And it doesn't mean low carb. It tends to be low To moderate GL though since you don't eat or drink refined carbs.

Re itchy throat-- there are antibodies in your mucin linings. That's where IgA lives and works. Which is why tests for gluten intolerance should be looking for IgA. They at Los you first line of defense against pathogen, which is one of he reasons flu vaccines don't work that well since they are injected into your bloodstream. The kind you inhale might work better but
