searching_for_help Posted January 13, 2016 Report Share Posted January 13, 2016 Our doc wants dd to start either cholestyramine or Bind, due to C4a results being high. (C3a was normal). My concern is dd's urine mold results were negative, and from what I'm reading, elevated levels of C4a can be due to other things such as Bartonella (which she did have the rash this past spring). I realize it could also be due to nasal staph, but she has not been tested. I get a bit tired of docs like Shoemaker making EVERYTHING about the topic they are studying, (in his case, mold), when the test results can indicate lots of other things. Is it worth going through the time and expense of the binding agents if mold isn't the issue? Is the mold urine test definitive - I think we spent around $700 out-of-pocket for that test a year or so ago! I just wonder if the binding agents are worth going through if mold isn't the issue...
