Hyponatremia and Central Pontine Myelinolysis

What is hyponatremia? Information regarding CPM and EPM.

Immunoglobulins: A treatment option for CPM/EPM and brain injury.

IVIG, this is the term used for IV immunoglobulins. This is a product that is made up of condensed human antibodies.

Studies have shown that when you have a brain injury giving these antibodies, iv immunoglobulins, can reverse brain damage and minimize the impact of conditions like Central Pontine Myelinolysis and extra pontine myelinolysis.

It is an important and fairly inexpensive intervention with very few complications.

Immunoglobulins is condensed formula of human antibodies. Antibodies help to repair and fight off infections of all kinds.

They do not quite understand how these antibodies work. Your body should produce them on their own. My hypothesis is that when you suffer a sever brain injury, your body is unable to produce enough antibodies to fight the trauma on its own. Your body, when fighting infection and trauma, goes through a massive amount of nutrients…including, vitamin A, vitamin D, and vitamin C. When you suffer an infection or trauma, these hormones and cornerstones of cellular function get depleted.

When you are hospitalized for infection or trauma, they neglect to supplement you for these vital components. You become depleted and your body can’t rally to do necessary repairs and build immune cells/antibodies.

No matter how the condition arises, the lack of your body to repair itself occurs. Immunoglobulins have been shown to be a safe and effective way of repairing brain injuries, and highly recommend if you suffer from ODS, aka CPM/EPM to request this treatment.

It has been shown effective in multiple studies to improve the medical outcome. It has not been used in late stages of injury, IE the sooner you use them the better the outcome.
