Ann Shippy, MD

Welcome to Mold, Mycotoxins, and Chronic Illness Summit. I’m your host Dr. Ann Shippy. Today I want to share a case with you that will help to explain some of the genetic susceptibility. There’s a lot of research that shows that HLA genes are important and that about 25% of people have HLA genes that increase their risk for how their bodies handle Mycotoxins. But there’s so much more, and that’s why I’ve included several lectures and conversations on genetics because sometimes it can be super helpful to figure out how to get well and stay well. This patient that I want to share with you is one of my earliest patients that were dramatically impacted by mold. It was a 14-year-old boy and his mom had heard that I was a good detective and really figuring out some complicated situations. So the patient is 14 years old and he was having these facial contortions a type of tic that so distorted his face that he had stopped going to school, he had stopped even having friends over. He didn’t want anybody to see him because he just felt so disfigured. So when I was going through the history, the mom had told me that they were living in an old farmhouse, that had been remodeled and and also that the daughter was having some issues as well.
