- Low vitamin K1 status - if low, 10mg K1 daily has improved urticaria.
- Hypothryoidism - if have hypothyroid symptoms, have TSH measured and if high, your doc may put you on thyroid support - this will likely improve your urticaria.
- If no hypothyroid symptoms - you may need to check your autoimmune status against your thyroid which you can do with your doctor ordering the anti-TPO and the anti-TG antibody tests. If they are elevated, some docs will put patients on thyroid meds which don't treat the cause but they may improve your symptoms. Related to that, if you want to treat the cause, consider dental amalgam removal, heavy metal screening tests or other environmental causes. Low selenium may be a culprit also.
- Low selenium - found in many autoimmune conditions - if low, consider supplementing with selenomethionine - the superior form of selenium - or sodiom selenite.
- Low B12 status - possibly due to diet or low HCl in the stomach due to Helicobacter pylori (H Pylori). If H Pylori exists, may consider eradicating it or simply boosting the acidity of the gut with digestive bitter herbs or betaine HCl.
- Low HCl - see above. Also may be due to stress and stress is highly correlated with urticaria. Many individuals with urticaria have very high levels of stress or some other main emotional component.
