Best thing to do is-: nothing until you have a diagnosis. Polyclonal hypergammaglobulinemia is non specific and simply indicates the immune system is activated. This is normal with many infectious and inflammatory diseases. It does not need to be treated per se and bears little relationship to the severity of the underlying disease. It will resolve when the underlying disease resolves.
