Dr. Dempster, ND provides an Autoimmune Screening panel that is an economical and efficient way to assess possible tissue damage to multiple organs of the body. It measures for predictive antibodies, some of which can appear up to ten years before the clinical onset of disease. Predictive antibodies allows for the identification of markers and possible precursors of autoimmune diseases.
An autoimmune disease is a condition in which your immune system mistakenly attacks your own body’s healthy tissues and cells. This panel provides a detailed assessment that includes a wide range of different antigens. It is recommended for patients who have a diagnosed autoimmune disorder, as they commonly develop additional autoimmune conditions. As well as, for those who have chronic increased intestinal permeability, which is the gateway for environmentally induced autoimmune disorders.
The Autoimmune Screening requires blood work that is drawn and sent to a lab for analysis.
