heya, that's pretty good!
the bone profile - was that calcium, phosphate, albumin, and ALP?
it'll be interesting to see the ESR result http://labtestsonline.org/understanding ... r/tab/test
The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is an easy, inexpensive, nonspecific test that has been used for many years to help detect conditions associated with acute and chronic inflammation, including infections, cancers, and autoimmune diseases. ESR is said to be nonspecific because increased results do not tell the doctor exactly where the inflammation is in the body or what is causing it, and also because it can be affected by other conditions besides inflammation. For this reason, the ESR is typically used in conjunction with other tests.
ESR is helpful in diagnosing two specific inflammatory diseases, temporal arteritis and polymyalgia rheumatica. A high ESR is one of the main test results used to support the diagnosis. It is also used to monitor disease activity and response to therapy in both of these diseases.
ESR will indicate if your blood is hypercoagulable. interestingly, some of the old klenner nutrients recommended for MS are about increasing blood flow. vitamin e and niacin are notable components associated with blood flow that are included in the klenner protocol. although i never had ESR done myself, it makes sense since i got the most subjective improvement from the modified oral version of the klenner protocol that i used in 2006 (goodbye, sensory ataxia!). also, i decided to use ginkgo biloba on a short term basis to increase blood flow, thereby increasing oxygen and nutrient delivery to tissue. it was AMAZING. i had had no idea how poorly my brain had been functioning. on the other hand, it took correction of zinc deficiency to get my cognitive function all the way back to subjective normal. interestingly zinc and ESR are negatively correlated, ie low zinc correlates with elevated ESR. also interestingly, i recently learned that vitamin e is protective against zinc deficiency. so they're both useful.
the IgE will be interesting too. another link to zinc status.
Zinc supplementation alters airway inflammation and airway hyperresponsiveness to a common allergenhttp://www.journal-inflammation.com/content/8/1/36/
Zinc and copper status in children with bronchial asthma and atopic dermatitishttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2134100
Acrodermatitis enteropathica-like eruption and food allergyhttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15801253
Two infants with AE, diarrhea, and low serum zinc levels were evaluated. Food allergy was found in both infants. The first infant had a serum IgE level of 4642 IU/mL... The second infant had a serum IgE level of 991 IU/mL
in that last study they did not correct zinc status and measure whether food allergy markers changed. instead the conclusion was that allergy can cause zinc deficiency. possibly true, but still a fail, given abstract 1 above
my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
