Suggest treatment for elevated ganglionic neuronal antibody

Hi, I m a 43 year old male. I have an elevated ganglionic neuronal antibody. I was told by my neurologist not to worry about it. Should I be worried? What is normal procedure upon this finding? The antibody is .05 I have had unusual symptoms. Slight dizziness, low vitamin d2,low testosterone, arm weakness, anxiety, low libido. Are any of these conditions related to this antibody?

Hello.
I understand your concern.
The antibodies you have been found can cause a disorder called autonomic neuropathy .
This is a rare conditions, difficult to be adiagnosed.
The antybody level is not too high, but it i The dizziness , sexual disfunction may be related to this disorder. The weakness too. But the level of testosterone and vitamins D2 are not related. Anxiety is not a common symptom but it fan be explained by autonomic dysfunction.
I would like to know if you have had any problems with your blood pressure and heart rhythm lately. Or bowel dysfunction. These are common symptoms of this disorder.
I agree with your doctor. You shouldn't worry for the moment.
The treatment with imunosupressor is not worth, because you have light symptoms. And the side effects of this therapy are severe.
Hope to have been helpful.
Thank you for using HCM.
Best wishes Dr.Abaz
