[QUOTE=jc10]…hmmm, I wonder… Have any of you had an ambiguous diagnosis or been dx with CIDP with normal CFS protein?[/QUOTE]

Yes and/or Yes.

I too would initially consider going kicking and screaming to avoid a 5 day loading dose administered in two days.

However, this may be the kick in the pants an immune system needs. The results are what’s important.

Your body’s reaction will surely depend on the Dr’s recommended infusion rates.

Suggest you verify with your Dr that are not at risk for IgA deficiency. Here is why “[I]..It (IgA deficiency) may be inherited. It is found in approximately 1 in 700 individuals of European origin. It is less common in other people.

Note: People with complete IgA deficiency may develop anti-IgA antibodies if given blood products and IVIG. This may lead to allergies or life-threatening anaphylactic shock. These individuals can safely be given IgA-depleted IVIG…[/I]”

Good Luck
