      In another thread we were dicussing the amount of IVIG being limited to 70 grams and a member asked this question.

      “I’ve been on IVIG for 10+ years and would also like to know if any damage to organs – espically liver, kidneys… anyone? Thanks”

      Can anyone give any answers?

      I really do appreciate the way you have presented this specific topic and it also does offer me a lot of fodder for thought. However, thanks for this phenomenal point and even though I cannot necessarily concur with this in total, I value your own mindset.

      That last post is spam.

      I was receiving infusions in the amount of 80g every two weeks of Gamunex C for over a year. Never had any issues with organ damage. I do recall that there were some warnings regarding kidney damage at higher dosages.

      Here’a a link to an abstract of a study which evaluated safety of long-term use of IvIg for MS:

      This is a survey of the clinical use of IvIg. Risks are covered at the end.
