Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome And Gluten Sensitivity
Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is a disorder of blood coagulation related to the presence of autoantibodies called lupus anticoagulant and anticardiolipin. APS can cause blood clots, which most often occur in the deep veins of the legs, a condition called deep vein thrombosis. Blood clots can increase the risk for stroke and pulmonary embolism (clots in the lungs). Patients with APS are also at high risk for pregnancy complications, including miscarriage ...Read more
Miscarriage: Apa, along with lupus anti-coagulant antibody, are two antibodies that attack the areas in the cell wall of growing tissue, especially the fast-growing placental tissue of an early pregnancy. These are newly-discovered causes for recurrent miscarriage, and are usually treated with Heparin injections and Aspirin during pregnancy. ...Read more
Atrial fibrillation, hashimotos, gluten sensitivity and autoantibodies for parietal cells + ATPase and Asialoganglioside autoantibodies. What is prob?
Unclear question: I do not understand your question. But microscopic colitis is a specific condition that is most commonly related to medications, though some conditions predispose you to developing it (Celiac may be one). Milk sensitivity? - if you mean lactose intolerance then this is common and separate from Celiac. Everyone that drinks enough milk will have symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can you explain the differences between celiac disease, gluten intolerance, and wheat or gluten allergy?
Ttg-IgA 8, IgA 1.8g/l, Anti Gluadin IgA 63- non Celiac gluten sensitivity. Can I still have wheat once a weak.doc says poor growth bcos of this.

What is the significance of positive mycoplasma IgG and IgM antibody titers in patients with dysautonomia or pots and chronic fatigue?
Uncertain: Research to answer this question has not yet been satisfactorily performed. There are several illnesses with which mycoplasmal infection has purported to have been associated, including coronary artery disease. Antibodies to this organism, whether igg or igm do not prove active infection, to say nothing about causation of other illnesses. The theory is interesting and deserves further study. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Maybe none: We need a lot more information. The positive ANA may not indicate anything. Just because there is a positive ANA does not mean you have lupus. The low IgA and low pneumococcal antibodies may not cause any symptoms. Your evaluation should include pneumococcal antigen stimulation to see if you are responsive. You need further evaluation. ...Read more
Can silent celiac be present if IgA and IgG are <2 (negative)? And causing neuropathy, w/high b12.
Celiac disease: The only reliable diagnosis for celiac disease is based on intestinal biopsies showing inflammatory damage that resolves when on a gluten-free diet. Blood testing for anti-dpg ot ttg are suggestive if positive but not definitive (negative testing does not eliminate celiac). Genetic testing is useful since the absence of hla-dq 2 or 8 alleles makes celiac disease unlikely (. ...Read more
Anti cyclic citrullinated peptide antibody value 0.58.. Sensitivity of method 68% and specificity 92% ... What does it indicate?
Excluding Celiac Disease, which conditions can cause villous atrophy? ( I have neither CD gene and have been gluten free for 6+ months.)
Wheat barley rye contains gluten, a protein molecule that in susceptible people can cause reactions and long term illness. There is celiac, the most well known and severe gluten disease. There is gluten sensitivity, affecting more people, but usually milder. There is wheat allergy, less common than the others. The treatment, for now, is to avoid all gluten in ...Read more
