What Is The Autoimmune Dysautonomia Blood Test


Recommended Posts

Guest Alex

if you mean the test for autoimmune autonomic ganglionopathy (AAG) the test you want to have it's called an n-AChR antibody (antibodies to ganglionic neuronal nicotinic receptors) blood test

see here:

this antibody is tested as part of the autoimmune dysautonomia evaluation testing algorithm at Mayo.

The problem with AAG - people can have it, yet be antibody negative - it's a 50 -50 thing. According to most - if not all studies I read lately - half of the patients diagnosed with AAG are n-AChR positive, while the other half are negative :(

Hope this helps.
