90 grams

October 30, 2010 at 10:24 pm


I get 90 grams every month. I can’t drive myself and must rely on others as I take Tylonel and benadryl to avoid the nasty side effects.

It is a long day, leave the house at 7:30a.m drive an hour to hospital and then I usually get home about 7 p.m.

then it is off to bed!

90 Grams?

Dear Rhonda,

Please do not take this the wrong way, and I do not want to sound rude, but I agree with gusko. If your doctor is using standard protocol, then your weight would be approximately 495 pounds in order to get 90 grams in one IVIg treatment each month…unless you are getting it once a month but over a five day period – this would be approx 18 grams/day and would then indicare your weight to be approx 100 pounds.

ms judy,
[QUOTE]I was getting 95mg. of gammaguard 1x mth for almost a year.[/QUOTE] I do not want to sound rude with you either ms judy. However, 95mg of IVIg is 0.10 grams – this is 1/10th of one gram…not enough to help anyone with anything.

Warmest regards to both of you.
