Hi everyone. After six completed months of IVIG. I went today for labs and the numbers were horrible.


my creatinine level was 2.3

my BUN was 62

my C02 was 12

my anion gap was 14

Are the numbers that terrible?

and could dehydration be the cause of it?

I have metabolic acidosis though

but I take 650 mg of Sodium Bicarbonate and Sodium Citrate

I don't understand. The IVIG was suppose to help better my numbers and it's not doing anything.
