Since fungi can infect the central nervous system due to injections, why do some vaccines contain gmo saccharomyces cerevisiae?

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 more

Retest: I think if your daughter is still consuming an IgA tTG test would be more informative. You can also get a genetic test done to confirm her susceptability to celiac disease before jumping into a small intestine biopsy. ...Read more

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. The best way to definitively identify gluten sensitivity is to have a trial of exposure to gluten followed by endoscopy and biopsy of the small bowel. If there is good exposure to gluten and the small bowel is normal, then it is unlikely to be gluten sensitivity. ...Read more

Likely: Does she have any symptoms (gastrointestinal, weight loss, anemia etc)? If she does, she should stay off gluten. If no symptoms, then it is more difficult to have definite answer although ideally she should avoid all gluten products. ...Read more

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

What does a low level of IgA mean?

What does a low level of IgA mean?

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

What is the medical term for lupus iga?

What is the medical term for lupus iga?

Lupus anticoagulant: Lupus anticoagulant (LA) are a group of autoimmune antibodies directed against phospholipids in the body. The name is confusing because its name come from lab tests used to detect it in blood samples since it prevents normal clotting outside of the body. LA actually increases risk for developing blood clots within blood vessels. IgA is one of several types of antibodies (others are IgM, IgG, IgE) ...Read more

What does a high IgA serum means?

What does a high IgA serum means?

See below: Iga is one of the antibodies that is made by our bodies. It is found in the blood but its main function is to be secreted into our tears, mucous membranes and the like. Iga functions as a first line of defense against infections. Pt with IgA deficiency can do quite well and have no symptoms or can have recurrent sinus infections. ...Read more

What do high IgA serum mean for you?

What do high IgA serum mean for you?

Usually nothing: Low IgA can be associated with recurrent infections/sinus problems, etc. However, elevated IgA is likely nothing to be concerned about. Iga is one of the immunoglobulins .... It would be prudent to make sure that your other immunoglobulins are normal. ...Read more

What is the definition or description of: IgA serum?

IgA serum: Iga is an antibody that plays a critical role in mucosal immunity including protection against sinus, ear, and lung infections. It is the main antibody produced daily and secreted in the breast milk, tears, mucous, gastrointestinal tract, lungs and sinuses. Patients with decreased IgA levels can present with recurrent sinus infections, ear infections, and pneumonia. ...Read more

What is the definition or description of: h. Pylori iga?

A new H. pylori test: Common easy tests to make a diagnosis of h.Pylori are tests done in serum using igg antibodies. Igg antibodies are the ones made by your immune system showing past exposure to h. Pylori. Iga tests look at the surface antibodies lining the mucosal membrane of the stomach against h.Pylori. Recent studies show that IgA tests are less useful as they are less specific and less sensitive. ...Read more

What is the definition or description of: IgA deficiency?

IgA deficiency: Inability to make a class of antibody (IgA) that plays a major role in mucosal immunity (gut and respiratory tract predominantly). May result in recurrent infection, but is often discovered incidentally. May also forecast the development of a more severe immune problem called combined variable immune deficiency (CVID) or be a risk factor for an anaphylactic reaction to blood products with IgA. ...Read more

My son has low igg, iga, mch, and mcv. What could this mean?

Need further check.: Most individuals lacking one or more igg subclasses are asymptomatic.Patients with symptomatic igg subclass deficiency most commonly present with recurrent sinopulmonary infections. The infections vary in frequency and severity, and include otitis, sinusitis, and pneumonia that are usually due to common respiratory bacterial pathogens.More serious infections that can occur ...Read more
