No: Very unlikely, unless the patient is already immune compromised, other causes for this low level would be diseases/disorders leading to loss of protein from gut, kidneys or malnutrition, are mainly the causes for such, low level of immunoglobulins has other causes in addition,mainly lymphocytes problems, either T cells or B cells problems mainly are the causes for immunodeficiency states 1ry / 2ry ...Read more
