How to reduce the drugs???

Hi folks hope you're doing ok.

I was wondering whether anyone has managed to get their immunosuppression medication down to minimal levels?

My Adoport was reduced from 3.5 x 2 to 1mg X 2 - & my creatinine finally broke the 200 barrier for the first time in 16 months since the transplant - and I felt great. My consultant just had to put it up again to 1.5 x 2 & it's probably coincidence, but I don't feel as great as a few weeks ago!

How do we reduce our drugs? Natural immunosuppression through diet?

Transplant tolerance? (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26794635)

Conditioned immunosuppression by taste or smell? (On Start the Week Radio 4 Mon 8th Feb).

Immune Tolerance Network trial in America? (http://www.restarrt.org/what-restarrt#.VrozCI_XK1s)

Anyone seen other interesting stuff out there? Bodes well for future transplants.
