Could an unknown virus (that causes IgG deficiency) be passed from father to son, & thereby present as a genetic IgG deficiency& in reality be viral?
Can an allergist/immunologist ever help with chronic inflammatory polyneuropathy? Have seen neuro, but have been told I have IgG deficiency as well.
Together: There is an overalp, and a neuroimmunologist should be able to treat it and if in doubt, an allergist can prescribe ivig if needed. Your neurologist should be able to tell you if they can treat the igg deficiency or not. ...Read more

I recently miscarried at 7 weeks. Diagnosed with IGA and possibly IGG deficiency . Also have bicornuate uterus. Can IGG and IGA def. cause miscarriage?

It is unclear here if your doctor was testing IgG and IgA as part of an antiphospholipid antibody workup for miscarriage or if you are referring to the genetic disorder of the immune system referred to as IgA deficiency. The impact on pregnancy depends on the diagnosis. ...Read more
What would prevent me from having a tummy tuck procedure done. I have type 2 diabetes and an IgG deficiency (hypogammaglobulinemia). I have had ivig.?

Which malignancies and/or granulomatous conditions are seen in individuals that only have IgG subclass 3 (igg3) deficiency?
Is there CSF IgG subclass deficiency?
I have lowish IgG and IgG subclass deficiencies (1, 3, 4) and CSF IgG of 685 .
Great question: You already know that most folks who are discovered to have real igg3 deficiency are troubled primarily by recurrent nasal sinus infections. Until we know whether there's one of more genes for this, or whether it's the result of some other change in the immune system (igg3 can drop after other illnesses), i think the mainstream medical community will remain undecided. Glad you're proactive. ...Read more
My father has had low IgG levels for a year... Other igs are normal. Could this be a problem? His pcp suggested perhaps some immune deficiency.
Possibly: Igg being low can signal an immune deficiency. But more important than the amount is how well the igg works to fight infections. If he does not have many infections, this level might be his "normal". He should see an immunologist, who can tease out the likelihood of immune deficiency from your dad's history as well as lab tests (that look how well his immune system responds to vaccines, e.g.). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
