Response to Re: I tend to agree with MIR

 

Update: I talked to Dr. T yesterday and he agreed to do a trial infusion with intralipids after my egg retrieval and then test my NK elevation levels again afterward to see how effective a treatment intralipids would be for me. He seems to think it would be effective because the 25:1 ET NK assay w/intralipid number on my report was 13.7--down from 25--and he says he uses a higher dose than what they used on the test, so hopefully that should get it under 10 (which I understand to be the desired target? although at 50:1, the intralipids only reduced my number from 25.1 to 23.7). But since it seems like I'll need treatment for elevated NK cell activity regardless of whether or not I have any DQ-Alpha match w/the donor, I feel like it makes sense to do everything I can to try to find out if I can be successfully treated with intralipids before even considering IVIG, which is so cost prohibitive.
