My husband is celiac and on a strict gf diet. He gets sick a lot, as if his immune system is not up to par. What can i do?
Can untreated Celiac disease cause Immune Reconstruction Syndrome? I have bad allergic symptoms without Montelukast. Untreated Celiac disease too.
Not known: The association of Celiac and immune reconstitution is not one I have heard of or could find doing a quick search. Montelukast is used in allergies so I think having the expected response from a medication does not suggest an immune problem. It is worth getting your Celiac under control for other reasons, i.e. to prevent the known Celiac complications. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is going grain free helpful in auto immune sjorgens or other autoimmune disease if there is no known gut reaction or celiac disease?
No: Actual testing shows the present system of multiple separate vaccines (even 6) at the same visit are both safe and effective. The immune challenge of such an encounter is actually less than a single smallpox inoculation as it was given routinely up until 1980.The idea of spreading these promoted by ex Playboy bunnies and a few physicians has no benefit based in fact or research. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No difference: There is no known difference in the immune systems between people who get symptoms of mononucleosis when they catch HIV and those who don't have mono.

Is it true that if a baby did not drink breast milk in infancy, his immune system becomes weaker later in life?
Can bacteremia remain in the bloodstream for quite a while until one day the immune system becomes weaker and then cause sepsis?
No: Bacteria do not remain dormant in blood. However, we all get transient invasion of blood with bacteria from activities like brushing teeth and having bowel movement. In a person with weak immune system, such, otherwise benign, bacteremias can cause sepsis. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
Are there multiple cold viruses? Can a flu shot while your sick make your immune system weaker, and more prone to viruses? Will vitamin b help?

Influenza is the only "cold" virus we have a vaccine for currently. It does not make your immune system weaker although there are some times you should delay the vaccine (i.e. During an asthma attack). No evidence for vitb helping colds. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
