The Western Journal reported on a recent case of mold toxicity in August of this year, describing how a now 42 year previously healthy woman developed a list of unexplained symptoms after moving into an apartment with her husband in 2016. Over time her weight continued to increase while her brain function continued to decline.
“’Some days I couldn’t figure out how to get dressed. I would look at clothes and … just be really confused as to, like, how to put them on,’ she said, noting that she had trouble remembering simple things.”
Initial tests came back normal as they usually do and left her without explanation until a building biologist discovered mold in her carpet. A shower leak had been feeding the mold over some period of time. Although the apartment owner was aware of the problem, no mention of the issue was shared prior to the discovery.
We see this so often in our clinic. Young, otherwise healthy people develop apparently unexplainable symptoms. Standard labs look normal. Then we get the right history, do the right tests, and there it is, staring us in the face, mold toxicity.
