My 18 month old son has low IgA and igm. Normal igg. What does this mean? He's had repeat bloods and they were still low.

This should be tested by an immunologist. Usually they will look at tetanus, diphtheria, and streptococcus pneumoniae titers, then repeat vaccine if low and recheck in 6-8 weeks. This will help to make diagnosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
