What's the Best Way to Treat Immune-mediated Cerebellar Ataxias?

Celiac.com 12/28/2015 - Immune-mediated cerebellar ataxias include gluten ataxia, paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration, GAD antibody associated cerebellar ataxia, and Hashimoto's encephalopathy.

Recently, a research team set out to develop guidelines for treatment of immune-mediated cerebellar ataxias.

The research team included H. Mitoma, M. Hadjivassiliou, and J. Honnorat. They are variously associated with the Department of Medical Education at Tokyo Medical University in Tokyo, Japan; the Academic Department of Neurosciences at Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield, UK; the University Lyon 1; INSERM, UMR-S1028, CNRS, UMR-5292, Lyon Neuroscience Research Center, Neuro-Oncology and Neuro-Inflammation Team, 7; and the National Reference Centre for Paraneoplastic Neurological Diseases, Hospices Civils de Lyon, Hôpital neurologique in Bron, France.

For their study, the team evaluated the efficacies of immunotherapies in reported cases using a common scale of daily activity.

Their resulting analysis focuses on the importance of removing autoimmune triggers (e.g., gluten or cancer), evaluating immunotherapy (e.g., corticosteroids, intravenous immunoglobulin, immunosuppressants), and adjusting according to each sub-type.

I'm so sorry to hear that! (((Hugs))) I do wonder if gluten has been causing the symptoms of what your Dr believed was gastritis. I think either a whole foods diet or whole foods plus certified gluten free for a time would be good. Maybe 6 months and then retest. In my house...

Jane your fingers look exactly as mine did! So very painful, I remember feeling like I had broken a glass and shards were stuck in my fingers and hands....

Those elbows look very familiar! I had that rash for a little over a year and a half, and with each break out, the blisters would change, worsen in appearance and the itch got insanely itchier. The only topical product I found that helped a bit, was GoldBond lotion or liquid spray with Lidocaine...

I was diagnosed almost 15 years ago and have been conscientious about avoiding gluten. Yet, follow up endoscopies during those first three years showed continued SB inflammation. Other issues, like elevated liver enzymes resolved, however. So there was partial victory but also some disappointment...
