Hello. I am curious about Nutrition and alcohol intake. Does anybody have any experience on how alcohol effects the IVIG treatment. Or if it helps to eat specific diet. That could be less acid or food that beats inflammation.
Best regards Birgitte

Hey there!

In my experience I have to limit my alcohol consumption since starting IVIG. The treatment already dehydrates me greatly and I've noticed it takes very few drinks to intoxicate me now. Sad since I'm still young and a social drinker..I find myself ordering more iced teas at the bar :) hope this helps!

I try to stay away from sugar & limit eggs. I stay away from dairy/cheese as it causes inflammation. As for alcohol - I find that it makes me feel lousy - even a little bit.

Same hear alcohol makes me feel lousy. I cut out milk completely and cheese I cut way back.
