Reply To: IVIG dosage

There is a new theory that the dose should be according to what your ideal body weight is…… that is a whole other conversation. But if you go by the regular protocol of 1g/kg for a maint dose, you would be 86 grams. Your weight 190/2.2=86.36, so 86 grams. A load is your weight in kg (86 x 2=172grams) Not everyone responds to the typical protocol, some need more, some less. It just takes a while to figure out what your disease process requires. Some people could get the 86g in a one day infussion, others may need two days. We get our maint dose broken up one day every two weeks.
