Non Specific Finding: Hey so you did all the right things, looking for autoimmune disorders, liver disease and Plasma cell issues. When we see high levels of IGA and all work up is negative we consider it non specific and likely you have had this for many years. Important though is to keep track of it and monitor yourself for symptoms just in case another workup is needed.
