NK (Natural Killer) Gene

Has anyone heard of this gene? It is an autoimmune disorder, and my doctor suspects I have it and am being tested for it. Apparently it attacks any potential baby, so prevents pregnancy. There are options (IV therapy with lipids from a visiting nurse for a few hours a couple of times a month).

This is just one more thing...l. I don't know how many one more things I can handle.

I am afraid to Google.

Re: NK (Natural Killer) Gene

I know my RE tested me for this in my initial blood work (she took like 12 tubes) and I remember I was negative. Your DR should be able to just check with bW. Try not to get yourself scared with google until it is confirmed. I know, easier said than done bc I am always freaking myself out on the internet!! It's too easy lol

It's a $500 test that has to be overnighted to a lab in Chicago.

Do they come to your house? Does insurance cover it?

I think you saw or were seeing Kofinas, was this through him or your RE?

i did intralipids for elevated NK cells. it was part of what worked for me. DD is almost 2 years old now.

for me they came to my house and did the infusions there. it took 2-3 hours each time and i had to do it around ovulation/ER and then again after a BFP and every 3 weeks or so til 12 weeks.

Yup my NK cells attacked and I had multiple miscarriages... I am currently 20.5 weeks pregnant w/ twins and have been doing Intralipid IV infusions pretty much every 2 weeks and dr Braverman monitors my immune levels after every infusion.

Sorry I just saw this now. For me, the IV bag is covered, but administration of it is not unless I did it at my RE's office in the city. I did not experience any side effects other than a continued healthy pregnancy. Chat Icon Chat Icon Good luck!

i did it for TI cycles (never did IUIs) and for IVF. if you have the issue it needs to be treated regardless of your cycle protocol.

I had high NK numbers and did intralipids with Dr. Braverman every month for the first 4 mths. I went to his office and Linda administered the IV. $200 a pop but well worth it...Chat Icon Chat Icon

Thanks. Did you also do IUI or IVF, or did the intralipids alone do the trick?
