What is Immune Deficiency Disorder?

Normally, the body’s immune system protects itself from germs, viruses, and other threats. However, due to some abnormal factor, the immune system becomes weak and is unable to fully respond when a threat is present. This state of decreased immunity is called immune deficiency disorder, and it is a serious condition.

With immune deficiency disorder, even relatively mild illnesses such as the common cold can become life-threatening. Organs can become frequently infected, and vulnerability for disease overall dramatically increases.

Some examples of immune deficiency disorders include:

  • Kawasaki disease
  • Lupus
  • Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy CIDP
  • Myositis
  • Guillain-Barre syndrome
  • Myasthenia gravis, multiple sclerosis, and other neurological disorders which also affect the immune system
  • Immune thrombocytopenia

Children and adults can be affected by immune deficiency. While medications like immunosuppressants, biologic drugs, and corticosteroids can help treat immune system disorders, many people find great success and lasting immune system support through infusion therapy.

How Can Immune Deficiency Disorders Be Treated?

One of the key causes of immunodeficiency is a lack of antibodies that fight infection. Through infusion treatment for immune deficiency disorders, immunoglobulins – injections of antibodies – can be added to the bloodstream to boost the immune system.

Infusion therapy involves medicating a patient through intravenous injection (IV). This provides a more powerful alternative treatment when oral medications have not been enough, or when the patient needs a high dose of immunoglobulins quickly.

Medication administered through infusion therapy does not need to be digested. This means it begins working faster and immediately enters your bloodstream.

One misconception about infusion therapy is that it is very expensive, on par with a hospital visit. It’s true that receiving an IV in a hospital setting is expensive. But when you receive infusion therapy at one of the Infusion for Health clinics, we’ll do everything we can to bring your out of pocket cost down as much as possible.
