Aps miscarriages levels foodintolerance

After two early miscarriages I tested positive on cardiolipin IgG (35) and b2gp1 IgG (32).

At this point I also did a foodintolerance test, they test different food with IgG antibodies, and I excluded the positive food from my diet. My retest 12 weeks later showed level 22 on cardiolipin and b2gp1.

1. Has anyone else tried this and managed to lower their antibodies? Can it really be related? seems too good to be true!

2. My levels are not that high anymore, does it matter when it comes to miscarrying? Are my chances of keeping next pregnancy better? I'm on fragmin shots from 7dpo. (Well I cheated this month and took the first shot 6dpo in the evening)

That is an interesting result but it might just be a coincidence as the levels can go up and down and the actual numbers don't always correlate with affects. Some people can have a lot of symptoms with very low levels, whereas others may need higher levels for the same effect.

If you are suitably anticoagulated your chances of a successful pregnancy are greatly improved.

I have everything crossed for you that this time will be successful :-)


I wss strongly positive, over many years, on the IGG and ANA until i went gluten free in 2004. Since then my blood work is described as " boringly normal." My IGG is still high, but only marginally so. I am convinced the GF diet is responsible for the blood work improvement, and many doctors note the changes and tell me to stay on a GF diet. I am not a patient of his, but I understand Dr. Hughes urges his patients to go gluten-free.


Gluten for instance is a very inflammatory agent. Antibodies are a marker of how your body is reacting to inflammation. Dr Yehuda Shoenfield in Israel an immunologist and great friend of Prof Hughes puts all his patients on high levels of Vit D and says that it reduces all their antibody levels to the point where they are no longer positive. This does NOT mean they no longer have the condition just that they have reduced their inflammatory processes.

Therefore if you have cut out a lot of foods that you have now found you were intolerant to, its hardly surprising to me that you have now found your levels of antibodies have fallen.

It sounds that you are doing everything positive that you can for becoming pregnant but you would also need to be under an APS specialist and I would think do the things like taking Aspirin and taking clexane injections when the time is right.

Thanks for your replys!

Glutenfree is among the food I now exclude, but the worst for me seems to be cow milk.

I spoke to my reumathologist today, and she's saying my primary diagnose is Sjögren's syndrome, and that I have those cardiolipin and b2gp1 antibodies due to Sjögren's. And that I don't have APS cause you need a event and my two miscarriages were so early and my antibodies not that high so she didn't want to connect them to APS. I will still get treatment in a new pregnancy though. But not after. I don't know what to think about it.


Check out the autoimmune paleo diet. Allot of people with autoimmune conditions who have stayed on this diet have actually gone into remission from the autoimmune disease. They still have the disease, but antibodies are very low or undectectable, and they are symptom free, which is the most important part.

One of my functional medicine doctors said when you're autoimmune you have to cut out gluten and dairy for life.
