Strep Throat: It can but usually it it more often due to big and persistent tonsils and adenoids. Fortunately, recurrent strep throat is not one of the warning signs for an immune deficiency. Many times just taking out tonsils and adenoids cures the problem. If for see your allergist for possible IgA evaluation and/or allergy evaluation.
If I have a low immune system and I had abnormal cells removed cud they cum bck quicker before 6month check up cause of my weak immune system?
What is weak?: The term "immune system" is very broad and begins with an intact integument (skin & soft tissues). You have different types of wbcs, different types of lymphocytes and antibodies, and so on and so on. Be specific about what you think is 'weak', but suspect the 6 month check up will be fine and you need not be seen prior to that unless something unusual occurs. Good luck.

Will fludrocortisone. 1mg a day cause a weak immune system as its a steroid? Puts me off taking it for orthostatic hypotension
Not Really: Even though, Fludrocortisone is a steroid, it is a different type of steroid and will not immunosuppress you. It really is one of the effective means of treating orthostatic hypotension.

Infection & cancer: Your immune system works by recognizing when stuff in your body is different from you. Then it gets rid of that stuff. Such foreign stuff includes pathogens that cause infections like bacteria & viruses & normal cells that mutate into cancerous ones. So signs of a weak immune system are recurrent infection - usually respiratory or gastrointestinal - & decreased surveillance of cancerous changes.
Low immunity: It is commonly called that and a lot of "stuff" is sold to boost it (notice no before and after tests to prove anything). Actually altered immunity is common and likely seen with allergic individuals. Selective deficiency of the immune system do exist but are less common. A good learning experience to help you understand this system is http://www. Nlm. Nih. Gov/medlineplus/immunesystemanddisorders. Ht.
Immunity: The immune system works in many ways and a deficiency of any of its arms of defense will make an individual susceptible to certain infections and illnesses.
Disease low immune: Yes. Temporarly after viral infections there is t cell dysfunction resulting in asthma. With connective tissue disease the is disordered immune systems. After radiation and around certian chemicals the immune systems is disordered. Many other disorders such as pernicious anemia, scid, subclass deficiency etc. Have a genetic basis.
Immunocompromised: That's when a person has a weakened immune system from whatever reason: drugs, infection, malnutrition, etc. While immunodeficiency, is when an arm of the immune system is weakened or absent, can be something primary (born with) or secondary (acquired later in life) as with HIV infection
Nutrition, exercise: If you keep your body fit through good nutrition and a regular exercise program, your immune system will likely function better. The only supplement which may help regulate the immune system is vitamin d3, so make sure that you have an adequate intake. Folic acid has also been touted but the evidence is weaker.
Colds: Frequent colds are common as the common cold viruses mutate constantly and one cannot mount an immunity to them, but are you sure these are colds and not nasal allergies?
Opposite is true: This may seem backwards, but it is our own immune system that determines how sick we get with a cold or flu. Interesting study was done on people who "never get sick" and people who "always get sick". Both were infected with cold viruses and the people who "never got sick" didn't get sick even with virus in them. Some immune systems are over-enthusiastic and make you sicker than need be...
