The Atypical HUS Foundation

Hello,

Has anyone taking Soliris found any typical methods of immune boosting, ie avoiding gluten, helpful?  My 11 year old daughter is on a bi-weekly dose of Soliris and spikes fevers intermittently which then require heavy doses of antibiotics along with a trip to the hospital.  I hate to cause her any more discomfort, but I was wondering if any one had found any homeopathic ways to boost the immune system while on Soliris.

Thanks,

Mimi

Thanks Cheryl, Izzy is taking Florastar, purchased from Costco, every day.  I will also move on scheduling an appointment with a dietician.

I've found Dieticians are a great help.  There are dietary issues with any renal failure, although, and GI problems are a big part of this disease too, so any dietary help you seek should be willing to consult with your specialists.  One thing most everyone is okay with are probiotics, although it's of some debate if the over the counter brands work.  I would definitely start asking about it.  Your specialists can refer you to someone.  We just found out, for instance, that our son's sleep apnea may be worse because, even though his levels were adequate for renal doctors, sleep experts found that adding extra iron helps the majority of their patients.  However, this had to be cleared with our nephrologists first.  Good luck.

Candace, thanks for responding.  I may look into the oils and talk the Cipro option.  Stay healthy!

My doctor keeps me on Cipro to help fight off any infections of any kind! Seems to be working (fingers crossed). I haven't seem to had any problem in that area and have been on Soliris since may 2016! I am 26. So not around as many germs as she prob is if she is in public school. Does she eat pretty healthy? I'm not sure if you do any of the essential oils but there are some that help with unkind system I have heard that teachers use and works really well! I haven't personally used them.
