Left confused about intralipids?

lipidemulsionIf you watched Panorama yesterday and were left worried or confused about intralipids, there are sources of accurate and sensible information.

Looking at some of the comments from fertility patients after the programme, it seems that many people were actually surprisingly unconcerned by the lack of evidence for many of the treatments discussed because they felt if there was any chance at all of something making a difference, they would still be happy to try it.

What the programme didn’t make clear was that there are some potential health risks from using intralipids. These are clearly explained on the current HFEA website which has excellent information on reproductive immunology and covers intralipids. There is also a basic information sheet on add-ons from the British Fertility Society.
