Why You Should Track Your Treatments

LOG INSTRUCTIONS BELOW



The practice of logging your Immune Globulin (IgG) infusions is a very useful component to helping you communicate with your healthcare team. Your healthcare team wants you to achieve the highest level of success and outcomes from your immune globulin treatments. Keeping track of infusion information can help your physician manage your treatment plan. Kroger Specialty Infusion has developed comprehensive, easy to use infusion logs for IVIG and Subcutaneous (SCIG) treatment methods.



Track your infusions after every treatment. Take your log book with you when go to your doctor’s appointments. The information will help you have an enhanced visit with your doctor.

  • The Brand of IgG You Infused
