NK cells test(beta2-glycoprotein-I antibodies) need some advice plz!!

Hello everybody

Hope u all doing well in your tough journey! I have been tested for NK cells(blood test) in Denmark in less than 3 weeks ago! It has’nt been just NK cell as it was a very comprehensive blood test with several items of antibodies and coagulations etc.The Prof informed us yesterday by mail! It was too professional actually but as he says the only abnormality they found on my blood is my concentration of beta2-glycoprotein-I antibodies which was 37 kU/L (it should normally be below 20 kU/l). He reccomended prednisolone5 mg before bfp and then 10 mg ! Another medecine he said is a low-dose heparin 5000 units daily (or fragmin or innohep)by injection all pregnancy to prevent thrombosis og decrease the risk of miscarriage!!

I am so confused as I almost have never heard these things!! Is there any body who knows anything about these factors?! I do need some guidance or advice if u can! Sorry if this is too complicated or prefessional! It is just all I heard from him!

I do apprecciate your time and replies!

Good luck everybody! xxxxx

Prednisolone is a steroid used for multiple conditions. My mum has used it for her COPD chest condition. Heparin is a blood thinner used routinely to prevent DVT. They are quite common drugs but I’m not sure of the implications when using them in pregnancy. I’d ask GP for advice first.

Hi dear

Thank u for your reply!This post is from7months ago and After visiting a dr and making the decision I started using them just instead of heparin Im using Fragmin5000.We had our last ivf treatment and Im 12 weeks pregnant now! I used prednisilone up to 12week and then stopped it! But I have to continue with Fragmin to the end of my pregnancy! Think they worked for me! Hope everything goes on well to the end as well!🤞🤞🤞🤞
