    Default Anti K antibodies

    Hi i am new to this site and after some answers to my questions hopefully................ I recently found out i was pregnant about a month ago and had the normal blood tests done and my doctor told me that i had anti k antibodies in my blood but i myself am anti k negative. My husband had a blood test done and found out he too is anti k negative. I had a miscarraige 2 wks ago and i am looking for some answers about this anti k. I had to have a blood transfusion after i had my son ruffly 4 yrs ago and was told that i would of got the antibodies through the blood transfusion as both hubby and i are k negative. My doctor also told me that the anti K antibodies can stay in your blood at high levels for a long time. So my question is....... is this going to stop me from falling pregnant and carring full term? Am i going to keep having miscarraiges?

    Hi there XzanderMummy,

    Thank you for your question.

    Anti K antibodies are rare and are capable of crossing the placenta—causing severe anemia in the fetus. This can increase the risk of miscarriages. However, you can help decrease your immune system’s sensitivity by ensuring you and your partner are in optimum health to increase your chances of creating a complication free pregnancy and the healthiest possible baby.

    There are various types of antibodies that can cause miscarriages and from a holistic perspective the treatment is similar for all. Generally natural interventions take approximately 4 months to take effect real effect. In my experience, herbal medicines along with important nutrient supplementation can be used to rebalance one’s immunological response with great results. In addition, ensuring that occupational and environmental toxin exposure is reduced will be a step in the right direction to help reduce the immune system’s ‘over-reaction’.

    From an ‘orthodox’ medicine perspective, there no real preconception treatment available—once you are pregnant you will be closely monitored throughout and the baby may need blood transfusions if there are any complications and no early miscarriage.

    In my view, for you and your husband to be in the absolute best possible state of health prior to a conception attempt will be your best ‘medicine’.

    I hope this helps.
