Low Immunoglobulins

Recommended Posts

Hoping some one can help me with question on blood work. I was diagnosed in May via blood test and confirmed in June with Endoscopy.

Recent blood work came back with Low immunoglobulin A at level of 49 and Low Immunoglobulin M slightly out of range at 41.

Doctor's office said it would only be a problem if suffering frequent infections. In researching it seems A may be related to intestinal disease (celiac)? If so, it would seem this might be common with others.

Any help??

Thanks

IgA deficiency is a little more common in celiacs than it is in non-celiacs, but i don't know the figures. one of my children is IgA deficien----and registers at almost nothing. he does not have celiac disease, but he does carry one of the main genes for it.

it used to seem like he had a cold all winter long, so i figured he must have allergies. he tests negative for allergies, but once i learned he was IgA deficient, i realized he probably DID have a cold most of the winter.
