Olivia posted this incredible story of wheat-free release in the comments on this blog some time back. Her story so powerfully encapsulates how far off course health can go by consuming this thing called “wheat,” that I thought it was worth sharing with everybody again. During her wheat-consuming days, Olivia was clearly suffering body-wide inflammation and other effects that were being ineffectively “treated” by her doctor, effects largely due to the indigestible or only partially-digestible proteins from the seeds of grasses AKA wheat. As often happens, she managed to reverse the entire collection...

ie IB Abstract The aim of the 25 and Up (25Up) study was to assess a wide range of psychological and behavioral risk factors behind mental illness in a large cohort of Australian twins and their non-twin siblings. Participants had already been studied longitudinally from the age of 12 and most recently in the 19Up study (mean age = 26.1 years, SD = 4.1, range = 20-39). This subsequent wave follows up these twins several years later in life (mean age = 29.7 years, SD = 2.2, range =  22-44). The resulting data set enables additional detailed investigations of genetic pathways underlying psychiatr...

Discussion Sarcoidosis is rare and is even rarer in the pediatric age group. Sarcoidosis is seen in all ages with an estimated prevalence is 10-40/100,000 in the U.S. population. Pediatric sarcoidosis has an estimated incidence of 0.2/100,000 per year. For the pediatric age range it is more likely from 9-15 years of age. In adults it commonly presents between 20-39 years but bimodal distribution is also reported. Women are more likely to have sarcoidosis than men. African American females have the highest risk, and usually present slightly older, especially in the 4th decade of life. African American women are also more li...

Conclusion: Some patients with psychiatric syndromes and increased ANA titers may suffer from psychiatric variants of SLE, even if the American College of Rheumatology criteria for SLE are not met. Whether the psychiatric symptoms in our patient represent a prodromal stage with the later manifestation of full-blown SLE or a subtype of SLE with isolated CNS involvement remains unclear. Regardless, early diagnosis and initiation of immunosuppressive treatment are essential steps in preventing further disease progression and organ damage. Intrathecal ANAs with extractable nuclear antigen differentiation may be a more sensitiv...
