Dr. Casini touches on astrocytes in her interesting interview with Rhonda Patrick on senescent cells. Rhonda comments that there are many more astrocytes then neurons in the brain.
Juliegee wrote:Circ, my thyroid antibodies are only slightly elevated; thyroglobulin antibodies: 2 IU/mL (reference: < or =1 IU/mL) & thyroid peroxidase antibodies: 9 IU/mL (reference: <9 IU/mL.) They've never been elevated before. I've recently began sprinkling sea vegetables (iodine) on my greens- broccoli, spinach, kale to support my suboptimal thyroid. Coincidence? Maybe. I'm also living in a house we're renovating and have recently been exposed to mold, etc. Both of these can trigger Hashi's. I'm paying attention. Interestingly, my thyroid function is MUCH improved using a tiny dose of WP Thyroid medication (1/4 of a 65 mg tablet, b.i.d.)
My test results are slowly trickling in and things seem to be moving in the right direction. My biggest success so far is with MSH. I know from listening to CIRS experts that this is the one biomarker that is the most stubborn and last to change... if ever. Mine has gone from 5 to 8 to 23 (Shoemaker Reference: 35-81 pg/mL.) Major. My TGF Beta-1 is improved by 200 points, still crazy high at 7120 (reference: 344-2382 pg/mL.) I can't get a handle on my Babesia progress because Quest may have begun reporting results differently. My last test was 1:1024 (reference: <1:256.) This test simply reports HIGH, >1:256, perhaps using this as a cut-off as opposed to reporting real numbers. Lots of love to my fellow CIRS warriors. Keep fighting.
