Autoimmun Diseases
      #19678 - 07/24/01 03:11 AM

Hi everyone!
I wonder why a disease called Lupus can cause delayed seroconversation? Do a person with Lupus have low white blood cell or why does this disease cause delayed seroconversation? and what other Autoimmun diseases can cause delayed seroconversation? and what is the cause? does all Autoimmundiseases cause delayed seroconversation?
Hopes that anyone knows anything about this.

I believe Dr. Holodniy commented on this in the "Viral Load" forum, and I believe Autoimmune Disease was referenced in the article title; you can probabaly find it, and I'd suggest looking for it.

As best as I can recall, he indicated that MOST (not all, necessarily) Autoimmune diseases would cause a higher level of antobodies to be present, not a lower level. I don't remember how much of that article dealt with Lupus, but it's a place to start.

Also Lupus is not a disease that doctors look for often, but it has the same symptoms as HIV. So for all of you that have tested negative and still have symptoms it's something you might want to look into.
