Hi Di,

Just following up on your post below about Dr. T saying not to worry if the intralipid tests results from Rosalind Franklin indicate that our NK activity will not decrease all that much with the use of intralipids. As I said before, my results according to the lab tests run by RF basically say that intralipid therapy will not bring down my NK cells. Well, I asked Dr. T about his dosage and he said that basically the dosage that he gives is 25x's more than the dosage on that test and that which most Dr.;s prescribe so I am not to rely upon that. He said that basically, most people use 4cc's of the 100cc units of intralipids based upon following Dr. Coulam who is a noted Reproductive Immunologist. He said that he used to do this too until he realized that this dosage just was not working for many of his patients and he found out that there was no basis for this 4cc dosage amount...that it was random. Also...the intralipids are completely safe..so..why not? Makes sense to me.

So his dosage is 100cc's and not 4 cc's like most. According to him he has seen results as effective as using IVIG in many cases with this dosage and has had better outcomes. So..hopefully that is good news for us. That made me feel so much better.

Thank you, this is great info to have, and definitely makes me feel better too. I also really like that he questioned what the reason was for the usual dosage and thought outside the box so he could help his patients. Speaking of which, I've been thinking about you and hope you're relaxing and catching up on some fun trashy TV (or reading a good book or something) post-transfer... I've got my fingers crossed for you!
