Reply To: IVIG dosage

June 29, 2012 at 2:18 pm

I receive 0.4 g/kg which for me is 20 grams which takes me 4 hours as I cannot tolerate a rate above 60 cc/ hour – currently I am receiving every 10 days or so – when I went to Mayo clinic I discussed this with Dr Dyck – it was his opinion that lower more frequent dosing was more beneficial than larger less frequent dosing and also he feels most people are under treated with IVIG – I am really hoping the sq gamma globulin studies pan out as I think this would solve a lot of the logistical issues that are a barrier to proper dosing and frequency.
