1 patient evaluation for Dextrose (IV glucose)

Mar 22, 2012 (Started Jan 01, 2012)

  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for acute intermittent porphyria)
  • Side effects
    Moderate (weight gain)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: I got one to two days of decreased neurologic dysfunction with weekly IV infusions of dextrose... but not enoughbenefit to actively integrate into mainstream society... not worth the "balooning" weight gain and increased "non alcoholic fatty liver disease" or "metabolic syndrome/ diabetes" risks.
Cost: $100-199 monthly
