Real Patient Stories

They infuse monthly,*
so they can live daily.

*Every 3 or 4 weeks.

With HyQvia, I'm able to fit my Ig treatments into my routine, and not the other way around. PI is just a small part of my life. It doesn't define who I am, and Ig treatment has helped keep it that way.

It's nice to have an Ig treatment that allows me 28 days between infusions to focus on the most important part of my life: my family.

I'm able to be more present for my family, for my students….and for myself.

Mary lives by the beach.

She's a SoCal girl through and through. When she and her husband, Michael, aren't hosting a barbecue or visiting vineyards, they're strolling beaches with their pups, Maddie and Marco. She wants infusing to take as little of her time as possible, because there are so many other things she loves to do.

Infuses monthly.*

She started on an IVIg then switched to HyQvia because she liked having the option of doing her infusions at home instead of an infusion center. After a couple visits from a nurse to make sure her infusions were being done properly and going well, Mary was comfortable with it all.

*Every 3 or 4 weeks.

She lives daily.

Before switching to HyQvia, Mary and Michael referred to her four-times-a-month infusions as "date nights" because they were so frequent. They wanted a positive spin. They still refer to her infusions as "date nights," but there's less "infusion date nights" and more "real date nights."

When Michael isn't working at his marketing job during the day, he's with his family. They're everything to him. From basketball games to backyard cookouts, it's the little, everyday things in life he enjoys the most. HyQvia works for him because it allows him to focus less on managing his treatment schedule and more on doing what he loves.

Infuses monthly.*

He chose HyQvia because he had difficulty with venous access and doesn't like needles. He switched to a once-weekly SCIG but was still unhappy with the number of needles. After an initial ramp-up schedule was complete, he began monthly* infusions with HyQvia. He learned how to self-administer and now infuses at home every 4 weeks using only 2 injection sites.

*Every 3 or 4 weeks.

Now, Michael makes the most of his time by focusing on his family, playing basketball with his boys, and being a highly respected leader at work. He wanted fewer needle sticks. Now, during his infusions every 4 weeks, he can relax and watch TV.

Angela is an avid runner.

Angela's love of running started with cross country in the 7th grade. She hasn't stopped since. This year, she's training for two half marathons and would love to run a full next summer. Her focus is on living her life daily, not her PI. She chooses HyQvia so she can maximize her time in between infusions.

Infuses monthly.*

With HyQvia, she infuses once a month at home. She uses two sites because of the volume of Ig she needs. Her infusions take about 2 hours. She uses this time to watch a new documentary, calls her sister to catch up or writes out her busy family of five's practice schedules.

*Every 3 or 4 weeks.

She lives daily.

She's making the most of her days between infusions by training for out-of-town charity races, working volunteer hours at the library and, of course, spending time with her three kids.
