International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Anyone had this tested? Mine was extremely low, indicating severe leaky gut, I assume.

    Pathogenic bacteria going into my body from my gut....creating all kinds of issues. Might be behind the fog. Might be why wide-spectrum Rocephin helped me...

    Yes, I've had it tested twice and it was extremely low both times. I'm convinced it's close to the root of my illness.

    This is strange Daffodil but just earlier today I earmarked that exact study to read. Did you read it ?

    hi all. yes i read it, globalpilot:). ema....i read that article before but i just read it again..it says EBV can cause persistent low sIgA! that is very disturbing. how can it do that i wonder?

    Hi @Ema, this pdf gets error, says empty file. Any chance you gave a copy you can repost? Just got SIgA results that were high and trying to do more research. Most people seem to have low siga so I'm interested in understanding more. All 8pm finding is it is indication of infection.

    It's only about low sIgA unfortunately...

    Here's a copy of it at this link though:
