in my mind, it fits my story, lol.
over the years, people here have discussed candida as a cause of itp. some have burst an artery arguing against it.
regardless, i am convinced i have either a fungal or bacterial infection, but mostly believe its fungal.
so with that as a backdrop, lets move on. i'm going over in my mind what treatment i will choose, if, at my dental appointment in october my dentist asks to increase my count. i won't go through all my medical issues but i decided on ivig.
here's where the story takes an interesting turn. i googled "should you get an ivig infusion if you have a fungal infection".
to my amazement, there was nih article on it where they purposely innoculated mice with candida and then gave them ivig 7 days in a row. the candida was gone. i was thinking the opposite, thinking ivig was immunosuppressive.
now, i know some people have gone into remission after several rounds of ivig. could they have had an unknown fungal infection. i think this is quite amazing. am i original here, or has this exact mechanism been discussed here?
i'd loved to get some opinion and input.
