There are many treatments for these issues , but they will depend on all other immune findings . Remember you treat a medical condition not a lab result.
Prednisone , IVIG , Humira are just a few of the treatments that have been successful.

Thank you.
Regarding the high cytokines, would gluten-free diet be beneficial and sufficient? I have not been tested for gluten, but I came across opinions suggesting this kind of diet for high cytokines.All my other findings are normal.

you should be tested for all IGG food allergies including gluten , yes gluten is known as a potential activator of inflammatory cytokines.
