What Disease Does Saccharomyces Ab
I don't have anti-saccharomyces cerevisiae antibodies (asca's). My doctor still suspects that i might have Crohn's disease. Can one have Crohn's and no asca ab's?
Probably not: S. C. Is a species of yeast, likely the most widely studied, and has been used in winemaking, brewing, and baking for thousands years. It is present within the body, most commonly the cuticles of fingernails. I am unaware of it being dangerous to humans, even in presence of liver disease. There exists some intriguing research associating anibodies to this yeast with crohn's diseaase. Refer to id.
Ingestion-no: Not by ingestion, but if infection with this organism - rare but possibly.
Some vaccines contain saccharomyces cerivisiae. Could they cause u 2 form anti-saccharomyces cerivisiae antibodies, thus inducing Crohn's disease?
Probably not.: First of all, most vaccines don't go anywhere near the yeast, only recombinant vaccines use it. Secondly, the vaccines are purified , and the amounts of actual saccharomyces in the vaccine are very small, compared to the relatively huge amounts of the yeast in the bowel. So the likelihood of this being a problem is tiny.
Can I take saccharomyces Boulardii while suffering from pytiriasis versicoloured? And does s. boulardii helps with candida overgrowth?
No: Crohns disease is not caused by s. Cerevisiae.
If you have anti-saccharomyces cerivisiae antibodies (asca), can u have negative reactions to foods/drinks containing this beneficial yeast?
Antibodies : Yes but be careful. High amounts of this antibody are found with celiac disease, chrone's disease and a few other disorders. It is not an allergic antibody but rather indicates antibody against mannan in the outer coating of this form of yeast. Cross reactions with other yeasts including candida can occur.See 1 more doctor answer
I have a chronic diarrhea for years, i cannot eat anything. Does saccharomyces boulardii can help? I am afraid of leading to cancer. Help?
Chronic diarrhea : Hi, the probiotic can help but make sure that other causes of chronic diarrhea have been ruled out, particularly intestinal infections ; infestations, small bowel inflammatory diseases like crohn's. Immuno-deficiency of various types can present with chronic diarrhea too. If there is wt loss, blood in the stool, abdominal pain, pain while defection, fever, loss of energy see a GI physician.
Will taking Saccharomyces boulardi and a bacterial based probiotic together be a problem? Will the yeast cause the bacteria to be ineffective?
Probiotics: The intestinal flora and the interactions of various organisms is often not easy to predict and the introduction of Saccharomyces and Lactobacilli or other bacilli and which takes over will depend upon multiple poorly defined factors, and whether the patient is also receiving antibiotics for other reasons. There seems no contraindication to taking both, but simply eating Yogurt is quite effective.
Was surprised to read saccharomyces boulardii can cause fatal infections in some people. am i safe using it to help my c diff? i take prednis at times
Good advice: Saccharomyces is a yeast that is considered relatively nonpathogenic in immunocompetent adults. Yes there are case reports of it proving fatal in rare instances. Keep in mind however that NOTHING is 100% guaranteed safe, so examine your personal risks before using ANYTHING, & stick with recommended dose & frequency of all medication & supplements (prescribed or otherwise).
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.See 1 more doctor answer
My 2 yr old child has diarrhea and vomiting.The doc gave saccharomyces boulardi.Vomit stopped but slow progress on diarrhea.She isn't eating any food.?
In case of recurrent UTI/diarrhea problem, can usage of Saccharomyces Boulardii probiotic and Cranberry juice cause harm & cause UTI again?
If someone is susceptible to fungal and yeast infections ... should he stay away from this specific type of probiotic called Saccharomyces Boulardii + MOS 5billions. I have a feeling it is making it worse. Please advise me thank you.
Unlikely the reason:: There have been reports of fungemia(fungus in the blood stream) from S.boulardii but In most cases, patients who developed fungemia in the setting of probiotic administration had severe comorbidities, were on immunosuppressive medication, had recent surgical intervention, or had recent prolonged hospitalization. Routine fungal infections of skin, vagina,hair or nails are not a contraindication.See 1 more doctor answer
What to do if i did a Lyme disease test and it showed IgG p58 ab. Positive a can you explain what that means?
Nothing by itself: A single positive IgG band means nothing. Was the screen positive? How many other IgG and IgM bands were positive? You should discuss all of this with the doctor who ordered the test.
How long could the IgG in Lyme disease stay positive?Could it stay positive more than 5-10 years? I know the IgM ab convert to IgG just want an answer
Yes,positive 20+ yrs: Research suggests igg antibodies can persist at least 20 years after infection. While igm antibodies appear first, unlike other infections they often persist ; are a good indicator of persistent infection. One may have chronic lyme with or without persistence of igg antibodies. Chronic lyme is difficult to fully eradicate ; no current test proves that it is no longer present in your body!
Fond blood wrk from01?Resultsb.Bur ab w/rfx Lyme disease ab, early<1.00 clinical data suggest ld, repeat, could it b cause of ongoin illness since99, neve
Negative: This is a negative result (no antibody detected). There was probably an "if" before "clinical data.".
