A 30-year-old member asked:
What can i do so my doctor finds out if my immune system is weakened?

Complicated: First off, without a history consistent with a weakened immune system, an expensive workup is a waste of resources. If you have a history of recurrent significant infections (not just colds) then the immune system can be evaluated with lab tests and evaluation of your bodies response to vaccines.
