A few days ago I posted an entry about how my serum IgA didn’t move down between last month and this month. Here’s what my Dr. has to say about that:
It is not unusual for the rate of response to vary somewhat with time,
and it is quite possible that the next month’s value will be
significantly lower. If not, we may consider using a more dose intense
steroid regimen (I typically start patients at 40 mg po wd of Decadron x
4 days, then 4 days off, then 4 days on, then 4 days off, and one more 4
day on period per month, or about three times what you are doing now).
