IgM Infection, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus2
IgA Chronic infections (especially of the GI tract), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), rheumatoid arthritis, lupus2

Initial symptoms that are often intermittent and unspecific until a disease becomes acute. Hence it is important to identify an autoimmune disease early. Researchers have identified 80-100 different autoimmune diseases and suspect at least 40 additional diseases of having an autoimmune basis.3 These diseases are chronic and can be life-threatening. The prevalence of autoimmune diseases seems to be increasing and is one of the top 10 causes of death in women up to 64 years of age. Fasting is not required. Take all medications as prescribed.
