Max dose of IVIG? Maybe not a record, but it’s a lot
In a different post someone stated they weighed 158lbs and further that, “I used to get 75 grams every Saturday and another 75 grams on Sunday and have 2 weeks in between. ”
Therefore, taking a one day dose of 75g and weighing 158lbs, do the math:
.4g/kg is a normal dose. substitute an unknown amount, let it be x
therefore, (x)g x #kg = 75
#kg for 158lbs = 71.62
substituting, (x)g x 71.62 = 75
yields, (x)g = 75/71.62
finally, (x)g = 1.04
Or, 2.6 times the ‘standard’ dose of .4g/kg!
Is it a record? 150g over two days every two weeks. Well, there are 4 1/3 weeks in a month. Let’s say it was 75g per week, it’s easier to do the math. So, 75 x 4.33 = 324.75g per month.
And, for now, so it is- a new record dose of IVIG for maintenance treatment.
