Is an IgG level of 3.5g/l significantly low?

Is an IgG level of 3.5g/l significantly low?

We all have much more igg than we need, and you do yourself a disservice by worrying overmuch about lab values -- "reference ranges" are simply where most people fall, not "ideal ranges for optimal health." this value may well be right for you. Best wishes. ...Read more

If an IgG kappa paraproteinaemia is measured as 7g?

If an IgG kappa paraproteinaemia is measured as 7g?
