Query Over Total Iga

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi. I am in the UK and have just got my blood results back. They are stated as normal, which is great. My total (serum) IgA is 96, with the normal range being stated as 69-446 mg/dL. Since it is not that much above the lowest value I wondered if this might be relevant, or would any of you just accept the result and not question it? I am not really 100% on what the total IgA is telling me. Is it possible that on another day my results could come out a bit lower so it would be worth testing in the future?

Total serum IgA measures the overall level of activity in the immune system. It is part of the celiac panel because if the level is below normal, other tests may falsely show negative. The normal range is very wide because many factors can elevate it, such as an active infection somewhere in the body.
