The GI Microbiome and Autoimmunity-What Are the Connections and Do They Matter? - Case Studies

1.0

  • Utilize clinical decision making related to the linkage and association between autoimmune disease prevalence and individual factors, including the GI microbiota composition, food immune reactions, stealth infections, molecular mimicry, and lack of early diverse antigen exposure, in practical clinical cases.
  • Interpret the available clinical laboratory testing related to autoimmune disease risk assessment, diagnosis, and clinical management, including qPCR molecular-based evaluation of the GI microbiota and predictive autoantibody tests in specific practical clinical case scenarios.
  • Apply the available evidence-based integrative and complementary therapeutic interventions for autoimmune disorders in specific practical clinical case scenarios.
  • Refer to other medical specialists and collaborative care opportunities in complex autoimmune disease clinical case scenarios.

The GI Microbiome and Autoimmunity-What Are the Connections and Do They Matter? Part 3

1.0

  • Identify the linkage and association between autoimmune disease prevalence and factors including lack of early diverse antigen exposure (i.e., the hygiene hypothesis).
  • Interpret the available predictive autoantibody test options for autoimmune disorders.
  • Learn to determine when to order the available clinical laboratory testing related to autoimmune disease risk assessment, diagnosis, and clinical management, including qPCR molecular-based evaluation of the GI microbiota, various food sensitivity assays, and predictive autoantibody tests.
  • Apply evidence-based integrative and complementary therapeutic interventions for improvement of the GI mucosal health and barrier function (i.e., leaky-gut syndrome) in autoimmune disorders.

The GI Microbiome and Autoimmunity-What Are the Connections and Do They Matter? Part 2

1.0

  • Identify the differences in methodology and application between quantitative molecular testing (qPCR) versus next-generation sequencing of the GI microbiota in the support of clinical decision making.
  • Synthesize the available evidence-based integrative and complementary therapeutic GI antimicrobial interventions for treating GI dysbiosis, including in subjects with autoimmune disorders.
  • Explore the linkage and association between autoimmune disease prevalence and food immune reactions and sensitivities.
  • Apply the available evidence-based integrative and complementary therapeutic interventions using pro and pre-biotics for improving the GI ecology in subjects with autoimmune disorders.
