NEW Fibromyalgia Diagnostic TEST! Research by Dr. Bruce Gillis found that patients with fibromyalgia have an immune system disorder which cause lower levels of cytokines, produced by white blood cells. “We found multiple markers for this disease, but more importantly, the research legitimizes a medical condition that is real,” said Gillis. The FM test is a blood test and sufferers can expect results back in seven days.
Scientists have developed a silicon-based peptide chip that they claim could form the basis of a real-time, point-of-care diagnostic platform. The team, headed by researchers at Stanford School of Medicine and Intel, designed their prototype chip, which they’ve called the Intel array, for identifying proteins associated with severe forms of systemic lupus erthyematosus (SLE).
#Lupus can mimic other conditions and often takes a different course in different people. Many people have it for years before developing tell-tale symptoms. Although there is no one test for lupus certain proteins usually show up in a patient's blood. A blood test for antinuclear antibodies (ANAs) can provide a critical clue. Other lab tests may check cell counts, kidney function, and clotting time. A tissue biopsy of an involved organ such as the skin or kidneys sometimes helps with…
lovenox/heparin injections... The things we do for a chance at a baby. I have 2 blood clotting disorders.. Have had 3 miscarriages. Hopefully the heparin will help us next time. Ask your OB for a genetics analysis if you are having recurrent miscarriages. This is how we found out about my blood mutagens.
When it comes to personal food choices there are several nutrients that are considered only existing in, are better in quality from, or are easier to obtain from animal-based foods. Many people believe that this notion indicates that humans are naturally
"The results that were uncovered via our research have finally been able to “tear back the curtain” and reveal that there is a specific pathway in fibromyalgia – and it defines fibromyalgia as an immunologic medical disorder. This disorder relates to the production of protein molecules called cytokines by a certain type of white blood cell. And the identification of this pathway has created the first objective test capable of making the diagnosis of fibromyalgia."
People who have Lupus are usually diagnosed with every illness under the sun before their blood is finally tested & confirmed for Lupus. It's not a big surprised though if you think about it. Lupus is an autoimmune disease which means that it can attack everything in your body. It can be hard for a doctor to diagnose you when your symptoms could be any number of things & any 2 people with Lupus could have completely different systems. It all depends on what their immune system is attacking.
