Depends on health: The results of these test and any test depends of the clinical context, example; frequent infections? wait loss? other illness? The save approach is to check with your primary care and maybe a consultation with an allergy immunologist.

How low?: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, it would have helped had you provided the actual value. Do you have any symptoms? Isolated low IgM is not a cause for concern. Wish you good health!
