Autoimmune Disease: Start With Wheat & Grain Elimination

If you or someone close to you have an autoimmune condition such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, along with about 195 others, there are a number of steps you can take that reduce, even eliminate the autoimmune inflammation damaging your organs. (Unfortunately, some forms of autoimmune damage cannot be reversed. Autoimmune loss of pancreatic beta cells that lead to type 1 diabetes, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis that damages the thyroid gland, or autoimmune hepatitis that can lead to cirrhosis. for example, cannot be reversed even if the autoimmune process is subdued.) I break down the factors that cause or promote autoimmune diseases into: Initiating causes—factors that begin the process Permissive factors—factors that allow autoimmune inflammation to proceed after started by an initiating cause The most important and common initiating causes are the gliadin protein of wheat and related proteins of other grains, including the zein protein of corn, and the casein beta A1 protein of dairy. Among the most important permissive factors are vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acid deficiencies. Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, SIBO, and small intestinal fungal overgrowth, SIFO, also enter the picture, acting as both initiating and permissive factors due to the marked increase in intestinal permeability with these conditions. The Wheat Belly and Undoctored programs therefore address each and every...

RazzaqueAbstractEarly diagnosis of sepsis is often difficult in clinical practice, whilst it can be vital for positive patient outcomes in sepsis management. Any delay in diagnosis and treatment may lead to significant organ failure and can be associated with elevated mortality rates. Early diagnosis and effective management of sepsis can allow for prompt antibiotic therapy and a potential reduction in mortality; it can also minimize the unnecessary use of an...

ConclusionsThe REAPSER study includes a cohort of patients with recent-onset PsA, before the disease course was modified by disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs prescribed in rheumatology departments. Exhaustive information collected in each visit is expected to be an important data source for future analysis.ResumenObjetivosDescribir la metodología del Registro Español de Artritis Psoriásica de reciente comienzo de la Sociedad Española de Reumatología (REAPSER), así como sus fortalezas y limitaciones. El objetivo principal del proyecto es identificar factores pronósticos d...

Authors: Grüngreiff K, Reinhold D, Wedemeyer H Abstract Zinc is an essential trace element playing fundamental roles in cellular metabolism. It acts mostly by binding a wide range of proteins, thus affecting a broad spectrum of biological processes, which include cell division, growth and differentiation. Zinc is critical to a large number of structural proteins, enzymatic processes, and transcription factors. Zinc deficiency can result in a spectrum of clinical manifestations, such as poor of appetite, loss of body hair, altered taste and smell, testicular atrophy, cerebral and immune dysfunction, and diminis...

CONCLUSIONS: Efforts should be taken to minimize risk factors associated with ITBL, such as CIT and WIT. The CYP3A5 genotype assay should be used to guide selection of immunosuppressive therapy in an effort to reduce the occurrence of ITBL. PMID: 31320166 [PubMed]

In conclusion, until better noninvasive markers for liver fibrosis are developed and validated for HIV-HCV coinfected patients, noninvasive serum markers should be used carefully in this population. PMID: 31320163 [PubMed]

Authors: Quarleri JF, Oubiña JR Abstract Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a small, enveloped RNA virus. The number of HCV-infected individuals worldwide is estimated to be approximately 200 million. The vast majority of HCV infections persist, with up to 80% of all cases leading to chronic hepatitis associated with liver fibrosis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma. The interaction between HCV and the host have a pivotal role in viral fitness, persistence, pathogenicity, and disease progression. The control of HCV infection requires both effective innate and adaptive immune responses. The HCV clearance during...
