    Please indicate how much saline you take
    Is it daily 1.5 L

    Does taking 1 L work too

    How about 500ml?

    How many times a week do you do this?

    Is there a worry about diluting hemoglobin?

    Thanks

    There's no set amount but the max I run is 2L a day, my dr prefers me to have under 1.5 a day

    Thanks :)
    there's more info on my original blog post

    http://blogfullofhope.blogspot.co.uk/2016/02/iv-saline-for-pots-and-severe-me.html

    I run 1L every single day, I find I start feeling better after about 500mls but the last half bag does carry on making a difference. I would still opt for 500mls over nothing but no less than that (that's going from what I feel with my body rather than as medical reccomendation). No worries about diluting HB, you just pee out extra. Good to check electrolytes and if your kidnsey are coping fine with the extra fluid/salt

    Am happy for your improvement...and enjoyed your blogpost.
    In the Uk we shouldn't have to go through all you have been through to get access to this- makes me so angry! but well done for getting it finally down to your persistence.
