I have a large belly, but we assumed at first that it was all due to being on Prednisone for a long time. I was on Hizentra for 22 months, and it could well have compounded the problem However, the Hizentra created a different problem – it made my belly fat so dense that I had to quit using it due to plasma leakage, bleeding and bruising. (I had to go back to ivig.) I am hoping that going back to ivig will eventually allow the belly fat to soften up, but in 2 months so far, that hasn’t happened. I don’t think that I would go back to Hizentra, however.
I first was diagnosed with CIDP in March, 2018. Eight months later I was also diagnosed with statin-induced necrotizing myopathy. It takes a combination of regular immunoglobulin plasma plus prednisone to keep them under control. (I am working the Prednisone down to nothing due
to the bad side effects.) I now have good use of my muscles, but have had a long-time ongoing
problem with skin rashes all over my body. Several dermatologists and allergists have not found
a solution to that problem, and it continues to get worse.
Are you sure that home infusions for CIDP are covered? The company that I use doesn’t think so.
