PANDAS

Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders associated with group A beta hemolytic Streptococcus.

Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcus infections (PANDAS) is a recently recognized syndrome in which pre-adolescent children have abrupt onsets of tics and/or obsessive-compulsive symptoms, a recurring and remitting course of illness temporally related to streptococcal infections, and associated neurologic findings including adventitious movements, hyperactivity and emotional liability.

Antibiotics have played a major role in saving many lives against bacterial infection.  However, there can be some negative results from repetitive rounds of antibiotics.  One such condition is dysbiosis, where there is an imbalance between the good and bad bacteria in the stomach and gastrointestinal tract.

Dysbiosis can lead to Leaky Gut.
