Since fungi can infect the central nervous system due to injections, why do some vaccines contain gmo saccharomyces cerevisiae?
Yeasts: The explanation is a little complicated for the space we have here but the species you mentioned is a common yeast used in wine and bread making. The same way not all bacteria are bad (some of them necessary for gastrointestinal health) other organisms are not bad and can be used for medical purposes. We eat this organism all the time without consequences. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Im wondering if you can tell me what the ratio is for normal gluten levels on a blood test. This is mine glidan/gluten IgA ab 36 h2?
Testing for gluten: Sensitivity can be tricky, and should be done by a physician with the context of a good clinical history of diet and symptoms.

If there is good exposure to gluten and the small bowel is normal, then it is unlikely to be gluten sensitivity. ...Read more

Celiac disease? Biopsy needed?Endomysial AB IGA Negative,Gliadin AB IGA High=16, Anti-Gliadin IGG A B High=22, t-transglutanimaze IGG Normal 1.7, t-transglutanimaze igA Normal 3.1, IGA Normal 186
Iga test results "insufficient". No levels recorded. Gliadin igiga an "not indicated". Tis.Transglut.Ab IgA "not indicated". Means?
Ok: If you have undetectable iga, any test involving IgA would be meaningless and negative regardless of the disease condition. You will need alternate testing and even intestinal biopsy to document your illness if gluten intolerance is suspected. Make sure to check the other classes of immunoglobulin to make sure you don't have an immune defect. ...Read more

IgA deficiency is: the most common of all the "selective antibody deficiencies " occurring in 1:300-1:700 of the population. Levels vary greatly from person to person and in different age groups. Infants have the lowest range of normal and sometimes IgA is either extremely low or may be undetectable in the newborn period. Levels are typically checked if someone has recurring infections of the sinuses, ears or lung ...Read more
