Reply To: “Hizentra Belly”

I have a large belly, but we assumed at first that it was all due to being on Prednisone for a long time. I was on Hizentra for 22 months, and it could well have compounded the problem However, the Hizentra created a different problem – it made my belly fat so dense that I had to quit using it due to plasma leakage, bleeding and bruising. (I had to go back to ivig.) I am hoping that going back to ivig will eventually allow the belly fat to soften up, but in 2 months so far, that hasn’t happened. I don’t think that I would go back to Hizentra, however.
