  1. Has anyone with POTS been on a cruise successfully and have recommendations? LTC Bill
  2. Has anyone been treated with IVIG ( immunoglobulin via IV) for POTS? There's a (blood) test processed in Germany by Cell Trend that looks for auto-antibody markers to determine if IVIG might be helpful to you. This will help your area POTS MD in administering IVIG. Research was reported by Dr. David Kem, Univ of OK and OK VA. LTC Bill
