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

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 went here https://www.wendys.com/en-us/gluten-info and seemed to have gotten conflicting info. In one place it's says the sour creme baked potato is gluten-free. In another place, under condiments, it lists only light sour creme as gluten-free. Anyone know for sure?

The only symptom I know of that is celiac for certain is dh, which must be diagnosed by a dermatologist.

I have both eoe and celiac and now that I have been gluten free for 18 months, my anemia is gone. It is good to get off the iron supliments because mine may have been the cause of my ulcers. It feels good to recover and heal! I may work my way down to fewer supliments and lots of feel great da...
