Immunoglobulins: Ige is the allergic antibody (this was normal). An elevated igg level might simply be if he was fighting an active infection at the time (this is a good sign). Iga protects mucosal membranes (sinus, lungs, GI tract, urinary tract) and his level is normal. Feel reassured that these labs look very good.
