Alzheimer's disease, gluten sensitivity and autoantibodies

in Proof of Brainlast month (edited)

We already talked about the gut-brain connection and how this will influence cognition. Statistically speaking, even if only 6% of the people will develop coeliac disease (severe gluten intolerance in layman terms), many of us will damage somehow our gastrointestinal tract at some moment in our life (see this book and this book for more information). Gluten sensitivity can lead to leaky gut, which in turn can trigger chronic inflammation leading to Alzheimer’s disease (AD). There is a standard blood test to determine your gluten sensitivity, called tissue transglutaminase antibodies assesment in the serum, and obviously needs to be negative. There is also Cyrex Array 3 testing, to determine antibodies and also we can measure sensitivity to rye, barley, sesame, oats or rice, for example, using Cyrex Array 4. The result must be negative for both tests also. And if we need to explore further more, to find any autoantibodies from the group attacking the brain proteins, then we will use Cyrex Array 5. This one will asses a host of autoantibodies, and also needs to be negative.

Next on our list are the mitochondria damaging agents. The mitochondria is that part of the cell generating and supplying energy, and there are many chemicals that can damage our mitochondria, within short and long term exposure. Antibiotics, statins, griseofulvin, L-DOPA, alcohol, Tylenol, aspirin, ibuprofen, cocaine, methamphetamine, AZT, thre is a really long list here. Even the ApoE4 alele might be associated with the mitochondrial damage.

Even worst, there is no definite test to evidentiate this. All we can do is to avoid the known mitochondria-damaging substances and chemicals.

And with this, our little journey into the early detection of the Alzheimer’s disease will end here. Take care!

Mate, @onealfa.leo , all of them are mine, both blogger and blogspot. I already checked with hive and if you check at the end of article is a note saying that the article is also published on my medium. This is work in progress on one of my books. All of it is my personal research, kind of. I am just using it on proofofbrain as i consider raising awareness about Alzheimer early detection is important and related to the forum name.

You should link the post on medium to this one and vice versa. That way we would have documentation that the ones on other sites and your account here is the same person.

done. i put a note on medium that this one is also on proofofbrain. this is troublesome. huh! let's do not make all this plagiarism check a witch hunt, right?
