ross to be honest, I'm a bit surprised as well. I asked pretty specifically, "what do you think about HPA dysfunction? do you think it's primary or secondary to immune dysfunction?" And he said secondary without blinking. I almost wish he'd said primary because at the moment I'm leaning toward the neuro-endocrine-immune school of thought (literally top-down). I'll definitely try to ask him more about this the next time I see him (hopefully Friday). However, is he doing anything to treat your HPA axis? Or does he believe treating the immune dysfunction will right the ship through a negative feedback loop?
