HiIve had full immune testing done and have elevated cytokines as follows.IFN was in range at 16TNF was highlighted as high 35Do you think this level can be lowered just by using intralipids? Or perhaps a steroid?Thanks for your help.

You really need a clear picture of the entire immune system to recommend treatment , I dont know your case clearly but I dont think based on the cytokines alone I could recommend any treatment, they are only mildly elevated and you must realize that they only look at the intracellular production of cytokines from T cells. I would want to see all of your other tests and your history to guide your treatment. If you would like you can cal my office for a free 10 minute chat and we could discuss your case and see if you would require a more detailed analysis.
