IMMUNOLOGICAL WORKUP

 

Several cases have been found to have had long-term, latent immunological weakness. Perhaps these viruses/bacteria have taxed the child’s immune system and then created a further weakness for PANDAS and PANS. Blood work-ups on the following are good to do to illustrate the immune system being taxed. Sometimes, with IgG deficiencies, IVIG can be covered by insurance though one must push the insurance company to do so.

RECOMMENDED TESTS

  • STREP
    ASO, Anti-DNase B Titer, Streptozyme.
  • OTHER INFECTIONS
    Mycoplasma Pneumonia, Lyme, and other bacteria or viruses.
  • CD4
    This test measures generally over-reactive immune response.
  • IgG
    Subclass 1, 2, 3, 4 for total immunoglobulin levels
  • IgA and IgM

 

For an explanation of possible deficiencies, please reference IgG Subclass Deficiency and Specific Antibody Deficiency .
