Dear Dr. Braverman,

At the moment, I'm planning to do Intralipids to bring down a %CD56 of 20.4% into the normal range of below 12%.My cytokines are within normal range.Can the ILs actually make my cytokines increase/worse/out of range?

Thank you!

No , but they usually wont help bring them down. You can use tthem for the CD56, but as usual its important to understand you must treat an entire clinical picture not a lab result.
