Hashimoto's Encephalopathy

Hi,
My Dad was just diagnosed with HE. He has started treatment of the IVIG. He has had two out of five treatments but still hasn't shown any signs of improvement. Can anyone give any insight into what we can expect? He started showing symptoms two months ago and was treated for Stroke and Meningitis until we got him up to Stanford.

Also, wondering if there is any dietary link with Gluten.

Just wondering what to expect with his recovery. As of today, he's still hallucinating. :-(

Thanks!
Carole

Re: Hashimoto's Encephalopathy

So sorry to hear of your father's issues! And, of course, so sorry for what it means for you to know he's suffering.

I don't know a thing about HE but am posting here to tell you that you and your father will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Hope you get some answers.

Try to remember that, if it doesn't kill us, it makes us stronger. I think most of us would rather not have so much practice but, such is life.

((hugs))

Sammy
