We ran a broad range of tests including most of those listed and found slightly elevated levels of mercury and aluminum as well as mold and SIBO so we are currently treating those. We did not cover MCAS or KPU/HPU. I have heard of both of these in the past few months. Are they big players? What can be indicative of MCAS or KPU/HPU in terms of symptomology?
That is impressive that you have had most of these things tested for. Quite impressive indeed!
I don't know enough about
KPU/HPU or MCAS in order to fully answer your questions. We did dabble in the KPU world for awhile but wasn't a game changer for us.
Are they big players? There are some that indeed believe KPU can be.
There are some good links in this post:/www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=30&m=3976674
As for MCAS, I think it's not really that well known (not a lot of discussion on it). We didn't deal with this personally. Hopefully somebody more experienced/knowledgable can help you on that.
But I do know it was apparently a very big factor for the person I mentioned previously.
Hope that helps a little.
Kid#1: Extremely sick for several years, very difficult to treat, but doing great now!
Kid#2: Still sick now despite being treated for years but doing better (not well yet).
Kid#3: Generally good but relapsing off/on.
Me: Adv Labs positive 2016 (suspected I passed to my kids)-not as sick as others, mostly battling fatigue and yeast issues (heart/kidney issues resolved)
Treating with herbals now.
