Some Happy updates on Christmas  :yahoo

My Ferrtitin is 477 ng/ml

Cardiac T2* Score 8.32 = Iron Moderate

Liver T2* Score =  Iron None

On Thalidomide , Wheatgrass

No blood transfusion since last 4+months

 :yahoo


This is an incredibly great news. Possibly goes to suggest that thalidomide + wheat grass combination effect is slow but definite. May be the combination works best when the iron accumulation is lower.
Regular transfusion, Keeping pre transfusion HB above 10 and Iron Chelation are the three mantras for thals to stay healthy.

Lokkhi,

A good nutritious diet and supplements like wheatgrass, vitamin E, B vitamins, folate and magnesium are needed to build and maintain healthy red blood cells.

Thanks Dori.

Happy to see you again

Likewise! I just achieved similar results. I do not have  iron overload in the liver. I take Exjade / Ferriprox. Are there studies underway? A lot of people seem to be afraid to try something off label. (which I can understand but...) My ferritin is yet a little bit too high to share here ;)
Thanks to Nice Friend for telling me to see my friends from this beautiful community.

Some centers in the US use the Exjade/Ferriprox combination. They have had great success with it and find it works as well as desferal and Exjade together. Doctors don't actually have to wait for completed trials.

Andy,
Recently a mumbai based Clinical hemo. told us in seminar that now First line of treatment is DFX and when it stays ineffective they use DFP as second line of treatment. So the Exjade and Ferriprox combo is widely acceptable in medical fraternity.
The results are excellent.

Good to know. The combination works well. Doctors refusing it to patients are doing them a disservice.

Read Your posts , Your advice and the results are very important for my daughter. We learn from You how to fight , thank You friends .
My questions -

1000mg of Exjade , folic acid, vitamins , hydrea 1 capsule it takes Aysel daily .

Hello,

There seems no difference in Ferritin reports i.e. 2970 and 3060 as ferritin is highly sensitive.
However, it should be repeatedly monitored.

Kelfer is another iron chelator just like exjade

To reduce the ferritin dose should be adjusted as weight, blood requirement and ferritin increase/decreases.

Report is in Russian so commenting on it is difficult.

Thanks for the appreciation

Split the dose of Exjade and have her take 500 mg in the morning and 500 mg later in the day. This will provide more chelation without raising the dose. Make sure no doses are missed. If she has trouble taking the drug in liquid, it can be crushed and mixed with most soft foods. It is most important that every dose be taken.
