Lupus: Low C3 is expected in lupus due to disease activity and consuming up complement proteins cascade, which C3 is one of these proteins, the low immunoglobulins can very well be secondary to the immuosuppressants you're on, please keep a close follow up with your doctor and possibly an immnologist input would help, up to your rheumatologist
