Re: The Models of Infection and KD

Hello. I would like to bump this post. It is not for newcomers looking for some information but for people doing research. It took me over a year to write and I firmly believe there is something in this. To summarize my thoughts which are still the same: a base infection of X has a hideous reaction ...

Re: usage of capillaroscopy in KD

Sounds like a great way to screen out diagnoses that are not autoimmune/rheumatic and therefore leave KD as a possibility and put it on a screening process where it would get more consideration. I would guess the issue would be that with all of the variations of KD (incomplete, complete, different a...

Re: Six and Five Symptom Responses

So sicker people have a weaker response to IVIG treatment... Good article and necessary I guess, but I am glad the cost of the research was incurred in another country.

Re: Mercury to be discussed at next KD conference

Deniz , I think this article is important and hope for you and your colleagues to read it. I believe it means that the ITPKC polymorphism found in KD people will affect the state (it has 2 states) and signalling (it communicates and synchronizes reactions within your body) of the overlooked superant...

Re: The Models of Infection and KD

Thanks practicing patience. If you have a base 'infection' of X and are exposed to Y - the homogeneity is using Y to cause the 'killer-sensitive' reaction or 'programmed cell death' to X. Basically, you have a great deal of somewhat benign X in you (likely due to genetics). You are exposed to Y. The...

Re: Vaccinations on Board

Momcat, I found my way to this site a few years ago because my stomach problems became hideous and unbearable in my early 30's. Out of desperation and not any kind of belief I tried some naturopathic/homeopathic remedies which seemed silly. They made me very ill, fevered, caused 'flare ups', all kin...

Re: The Models of Infection and KD

Sorry for the slow response. Here are a few articles and links. While none specifically say it, I think you can safely assume that this would be a slow, chronic vasculitis. A benign infection that slowly grows undiagnosed causing an ever-increasing level of inflammation until it becomes bad enough t...

Re: A happy ending story

Hey, Have these issues been associated with adults who have had childhood KD? Not officially though many on here would tell of one or more of these things being a problem. If you read enough stories and forums you will see the same things written many times over. Just curious, there are not many adu...

KD Adult Research Project

I have not been on this site for awhile. Has there been results posted for the 'KD Adult Research Project' saying there is no concern? There have been a few adult ex-KD people on this site making posts and I see no information being provided to them about sequels, Dr. Burns KD Adult Research Project...

Re: A happy ending story

Hi Eric. Hope you check back. I am 37 and had untreated KD when I was 8. If you look around, there are not many our age posting anything and we were some of the first recognized. We have moved on and found no reason to find this site. I have a couple of questions if you don't mind. When you had KD, ...

Re: Medical Markers of Candida

LA, I had begun researching the heavy metal aspect. From memory, I had found that a 'benign' infection like Candida will absorb lots of mercury/thimerosal according to scientific studies. It will also transform thimerosal into mercury. Under what I have written, if you kill off a huge amount of this...

Hi, I put a lot of research and effort into this thread 2 years ago along with the one it references here: http://www.kdforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1830 so I wish to bump it.

Re: Naturopathic or Alternative treatments

For example, garlic pills are common and used as a natural antibiotic. They are also a blood thinner and can have a compounding effect with prescribed blood thinners. Your doctor may not know anything about natural treatments so make sure you do your research.

Re: what triggers KD

My theory is: 1. you have an infection that is fairly common/unrecognized/relatively harmless that grows too large due to one of genetic KD findings or observations about KD. Examples: you have diabetes which creates a great environment for Candida or the ITPKC polymorphism which signals Candida to ...
