This is a topic that I have touched on in multiple blogs. I have observed in many sufferers of GDD that in addition to Gd, many (perhaps 50%) have multiple heavy metals in their body. Lead is a metal commonly found, but a full range of unusual metals are also observed.
How do these heavy metals counteract with each-other. At this point it is unknown, however it is reasonable to assume that they have at least additive toxic effects.
What to do?
It turns out, as I have written in multiple blogs, that DTPA is the best chelator for all (or atleast the great majority) of heavy metals, including lead. In this area I do rely completely based on lab/ in vitro data. DTPA has the highest stability constant for all these metals compared to alternatives.
There is the age-old saying: the straw that broke the camel's back. It seems that this works with Gd in these individuals: Gd has been the Log that Broke the Camel's Back. It seems that manifest severe illness after they have received Gd.
What to do?
Patients should be treated with DTPA (and just DTPA no additional add-on chelators- as these will redistribute Gd), and I plan that they may need to be treated longer with chelation than just heavy metal toxicity, subcategory gadolinium, and they will also need immune system treatment. So management of GDD, essentially is the same approach as managing heavy metal toxicity, subcategory multiple heavy metals, but perhaps somewhat longer.
Stay tuned on the latest advancements:
