Very High Nagalase? Anyone Have Experience With This?
Hi I'm brand new to the forum.
My functional medicine doctor measured my nagalase (ref range = 0.32-0.95). My result is 2.60.
My doctor suggested a series of shots to bring the level down that would ultimately cost upwards of $2000. Not covered by insurance. I'm hesitant to pay that. But, since it appears this may be an early warning sign of cancer, I'm worried. Any advice? Thanks!
What is Nagalase?
Nagalase is a protein made by all cancer cells and viruses (HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, influenza, herpes, Epstein-Barr virus, and others). Its formal, official chemical name is alpha-N-acetylgalactosaminidase, but this is such a tongue-twisting mouthful of a moniker that we usually just call it â€œNagalase.â€
Why is Nagalase important?
- Nagalase causes immunodeficiency. Nagalase blocks production of GcMAF, thus preventing the immune system from doing its job. Without an active immune system, cancer and viral infections can grow unchecked.
- As an extremely sensitive marker for all cancers, Nagalase provides a powerful system for early detection.
- Serial Nagalase testing provides a reliable and accurate method for tracking the results of any therapeutic regimen for cancer, AIDS, or other chronic viral infection.
The malignant and viral entities that make Nagalase are not normally present, so its appearance is a big deal from a diagnostic perspective. When Nagalase shows up, even in very small amounts, we have the earliest glimpse of a new cancer or viral infection. The old adage, â€œWhere thereâ€™s smoke, thereâ€™s fireâ€ applies here. A positive Nagalase test notifies us that a cancer (or a nasty virus) lurks within.
Nagalase appears in the blood stream when a nascent cancer is just a minute cluster of abnormal cells, long before conventional diagnostic methods can detect it. Through blood testing, we can find this red flag, even when present at exceedingly low levels.
