David Noah’s immunological records

I’ve attached a copy of some of David’s immunological records…it’s not all of his health records, but this is a copy of his pneumococcal levels taken in Feb 2012, and then a year later in Feb 2013.

These blood tests were taken at Dr Jennifer Puck’s office, who is one of the immunologists overseeing David’s case. She’s well respected and extremely intelligent, so what I like about her is that I feel she is aware of what is cutting edge and new in immunological research. I have faith that if an answer can be found and a treatment figured out, she will be able to help us.

(I think what CHOP and the N.I.H. are doing for us is on a completely different level of medicine, but Dr. Puck is the bridge between the research worlds and the clinical application of those findings (if one can be determined).)

Interesting to note, but one of Noah’s IG subclasses was actually elevated (it’s on the second page of the report, which isn’t attached here), and an elevated Ig seems strange to me, because he’s never had any kind of IVIG therapy or anything…I wonder what that means…

About hopeforanswers

Some kind of rare immune deficiency, yet to be determined. A lifetime of infections without an elevated white cell blood or fever. Very grateful to be alive, very thankful for the friends who’ve supported me and for access to literally millions of dollars worth of medical care. I’m not the bubble child, I’m somewhere in between.
