Discussion in 'Problems Standing: Orthostatic Intolerance; POTS' started by Ema, Mar 1, 2018.
I spoke with a doctor who suggested this treatment. And also it’s apparently just a transitory improvement, lasts a few days. There are some side effects too, despite what the above says.
What side effects did they mention?
I don't recall, I'm so sorry, but when we looked at them, we thought perhaps this treatment would not be tried.
This took place last summer.
Thanks so much for sharing this Ema, I will definitely be following this trial! I would love to try albumin but am sure I would need to provide evidence for its use in order to obtain it.
I wonder if that small subset who respond to albumin have echovirus as the cause of their POTS symptoms: albumin has antiviral effects against echovirus.
This is very intesrting.
Any idea what type of doctor one needs to go see to be checked for echovirus? I am thinking meningitis to be specific?
Echovirus is an ME/CFS-associated virus, so some of the ME/CFS doctors will test for it. Dr Chia is the expert in such enterovirus-linked ME/CFS.
Thanks for this info.
I did a quick search on Dr. Chia and apparently before taking on any new patients he wants the patient to be diagnosed with CFS with another Doctor and get some blood tests done that shows if there are any viruses that he looks for.
So my question is: Any idea which viruses he would most likely want the patient to be tested for so I can ask my doctor to run those blood test to see if I even have those viruses ?
That info is all detailed in the coxsackievirus B / echovirus section of my roadmap of chronic fatigue syndrome treatment.
From what I read, Albumin is responsible to maintain the oncotic pressure in the blood vessels. This is the pressure that assures that blood will flow in the body in equal amount everywhere in the body. I could see how this would help some POTS patients.
Does anyone know if there are any viruses that if contracted could effect the oncotic pressure in the blood vessels?
