Fecal Secretory IgA

Posted by

Dear Dr.,

We have a three year old son with Pervasive Developmental disorder. Since this diagnosis we have learned much and now know through Lab results that he has heavy metal poisoning. Predominantly, Mercury.

Our son also has other health issues, such as the leak gut syndrome, and gut dyboilosis.

My question for you is:

Given this definition for Fecal Secretory IgA

Fecal sIgA: Fecal secretory IgA is a specialized immunoglobulin, which is one of a class of five specially designed antibody proteins produced in the spleen, bone marrow, or lymph tissue. They are involved in the immune systemís defense response to foreign substances. Fecal sIgA serves as the first line of defense against invading pathogens, toxins, and food allergens in the intestines. Low levels mean an increased susceptibility to infection and food allergies.


Am I to assume then since our sons results for this were abonormally HIGH

(Abnormal Fecal Secretory sIgA 520mg/dl
(normal range40-204mg/dl normal)

That it is just indicative of his body trying to fight the gut dyboilosis in his intestines. Or does this result suggest something more serious?

Out son showed an Overgrowth of Pseudomonas, overgrowth of candid albicans, and very little probiotics.


We are dealing with these other gut dybiolosis issues and chelating for the heavy metal poisoning. But the fecal secreatory IgA was never really dicussed or addressed.

Your advice would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you,

Barbara Roth
