Has anyone tried LDA or EPD allergy shots? I am going to start this treatment in February and I would like to know if anyone else has tried it. LDA is low dose immunotherapy that uses mixtures of antigens made immunologically active by the enzyme beta glucornidase. The antigens in my shots will be proteus and klebsiella. My doc warned the treatment is experimental but he said if it works, I will not need to take biologics or steroids anymore. He did say it takes a few years to feel better and I could feel worse before feeling better but he also said if it works, I will not need immunosuppressant drugs anymore.

Wow! I’m a total noob about all aspects of AS regarding nutrition, bacteria etc. I’m trying to learn and this site has been amazing. So I’m totally interested to hear more of your journey. This sounds very interesting!!

Hey Winter, Did LDA help you in any way?

I didn’t end up trying LDA due to neuropathy. I am on Stelara off label and it is working well. I have an aggressive case of AS and autonomic neuropathy.
