Mmr And Gamma Globulin
I have eppstein barr and have been getting worse for over two years. Can gamma globulin
helpgive me a boost? I need a miracle...
Depends: on how high it is and whether it is "monoclonal* or not. A value even up to 20-30% higher than predicted usually means nothing in the absence of disease. ...Read more
Underlying disease: Elevated gamma globulin is not a disorder by itself but a manifestation of some underlying disease and that cause needs to be treated. ...Read more
Don't know: I don't know because there can be considerable variability so we normally don't monitor immunoglobulins so closely. Especially IgG can vary by multiples in response to an infection but I'm sure there will be some variation in samples taken even just minutes apart. Perhaps if provided a specific context I could give a better answer ...Read more
I recently received blood results showing gamma globulin levels of 0.37 when normal range is 0.7-1.6. Is it possible that this is a one-time thing?
Maybe: Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside on either side. This may just be you. It is no danger. Stop worrying. If this continues or you are very curious, you can get the various types quantitated. Some folks run way-low on one of the three major types. Usually they still do okay. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can a simple infection cause gamma globulin levels to decrease below normal range? (0.37 when normal is 0.7-1.6)?
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
