Copy of my post from 'ivf over 40':
Got a reply from Dr W at Cape Town over the weekend (!) but its not the reply I was hoping for... I asked if the intralipids 'REALLY' do help or its just theoretical and only 'MAY' help and couldn't I just take the prednisolone and he says:
"the action of prednisolone and intralipids are very different. Prednisolone suppresses the formation of antibodies and intralipids are supposed to mop up existing antibodies so it is logical to use them in combination."
What a pain considering how difficult it is going to be to organise. I'm going to talk to my FS and see if I can get blood tests for the next couple of weeks and see if the high dose fish oil makes a dent in the high ANA and if not I guess I need to pursue the intralipids.
