When you put it that way BB maybe the $3k is ok. I will find out more about what it includes. I think it's just your analysis, report, protocol plan and ongoing advice to your FS on what to do. It doesn't include test costs or medications. The flights to Sydney are pricey so it's something to factor in isn't it. My NK was the 16/56 too.
Preciousheart- a fellow mthfr 1298 homozygote? So good to meet you :-) my naturopath says it means our bodies can't methylate efficiently and therefore we don't process oxidative stress toxins or heavy metals well. This leads to serious health issues later in life if not managed. You will read it all on Dr ben Lynch's website. Do you take activated folate and vit Bs? I have a good one from iherb and it's pretty cheap if you want the name. My naturopath puts everyone on it whose ttc as she says it's vital.
I have been learning so much about all this stuff lately. It's very technical!

Hi everyone, I did an NK blood test and got the results back, but the nurse said the test results are inconclusive. Has anyone seen results like this? I don't understand what any of this means.

Lymphocytes 2.15 x 109/L (1.0 - 4.0)

T Suppressor CD8 39.0% 0.84 x 109/L (0.21 - 1.2)

Sorry at @Snowy12 and @nightchild80 I've got no idea how to interpret or what is normal. Sometimes I feel like you need a Phd to work all this fertility cr@p out!
AFM: 8 days into my 2ww and pretty sure we're out again. Caved and did a FRER on day 7 and stark white. Argh! Booked a Dr M Consult for Thurs ages ago so we can get a plan for our last try. I think we'll be trying neupogen instead of IVIG next time.
Hope you're all going well.

Nightchild welcome! I really think only a Reproductive Immunologist like Dr M can correctly interpret the mix of those results for you, a nurse or GP wouldn't know in my opinion, are you seeing Dr Matthias yet?

Thanks so much for letting me know that PreciousHeart, makes me feel a heap better! Hope you're going well. Have you had a follow up with Dr M? X

@PreciousHeart: No, I'm in Brisbane, seeing Dr Warren de Ambrosis, who got me to do the blood test. Thing is he wants to put me on the increased prednisone and intralipids regime this cycle, but with the inconclusive NK cell result and my having psoriasis (not a good combo with prednisone), I don't know if I should go ahead.
