See immunologist: Immunoglobulin A and G are major parts of the immune system that protect us from serious bacterial infections. Lacking IgA is fairly common but lacking IgG can lead to severe infections. An immunologist can assess the rest of the immune system and review in detail the types of infections you have had to determine what the best treatment approach would be.
