Great that you have results Naina.
I think you've sussed most of it out already. CD56 and 19/5 would be treated with a mix of steroids, IVIg and/or IL. As you say IL seem to work better but I wouldn't be surprised if he recommends IVIg at some point. You have already tried IL right? The 19/5 cells are linked to progesterone so you will be on some support, may be a mix of gestone and pessaries.
I think you will be pushing it to get 2 LITs in March but it's worth having a go. You prob won't be able to re-test levels tho but if necessary you could do LIT when pg altho I imagine that would be a bit of a faff having to travel etc but do-able if necessary. If you look on the LIT thread on FF then you will get contact details and dates from the last few pages there. Altho it seems the easiest way to do it is to get one of the FF girls who is over having LIT to book an appt, crazy as it seems! Did you have DQs? Perhaps Dr Gorgy could contact him for you?

Subject: [immunologysupport] NK assay results need interpreting please!
Date: Wednesday, 3 March, 2010, 19:59
My NK assay results arrived today and will appreciate if someone can interprete them.
IgG 12.5 50:1 14.5
IgG 12.5 25:1 9.0
IgG 6.25 50:1 16.6
IgG 6.25 25:1 11.7
MY CD56 levels are out of range (range 2-12) and so are my CD19+cells (range 5-10).
what is the treatment for these? My results also appear to show that IL seems to be working better for me than IVIG. Is this correct? and does that mean that i wont need IVIG?
T IgM 1.7
T IgG 2.0
B IgM 17.4
B IgG 15.0
My IgG's appear to be very low so i guess i will need LIT. can anyone tell me the quickest way to arrange an appt with DR Tsagaris in Athens. Will I be able to get two lots of LIT in March as I was hoping to cycle in April?
