Everyone responds differently to IVIg treatments and prescribing it is a bit of an art. Some people do not tolerate it well and have complications. Did your mum have any side affects? Has she shown improvement since receiving the treatment? Depending on her responses and if she tolerated it well, the doctor may increase the IVIg treatment rate. If her overall response has been favorable, you could encourage the doctor to increase treatment frequencies.
