Recent infection: Hi. IgM is present only with recent infection. After IgM levels fall away, IgG takes over for ongoing and recurrent exposure to antigen. (The antibodies in this picture are IgG's). I'm glad your doc was on the ball. She/he may have saved you a world of hurt by making the diagnosis promptly. Good luck! ...Read more

Weak immunity: Your baby may have a decreased ability to fight infections called an immunodeficiency. In infancy some of these problems are transient resolving with time. Others are persistent. If these are the only tests that were done more will be needed for a precise diagnosis. Discuss with your baby's pediatrician whether a consultation with a pediatric immunologist may be helpful. ...Read more
Maybe nothing?: Igm is a type of antibody you make to help fight infections. Slightly low igm by itself may not mean anything (i.e., your nature level). If it is very low, or other antibodies are also low (or not functioning), it may be a sign of immune deficiency that can lead to more infections. If you have ?S, see a clinical immunologist. They can help determine if your immune system is functioning properly. ...Read more
Immune test: The body normally makes immunoglobulins iga, igg, igm, ige and igd. Low or absent IG levels are seen in patients with recurrent infections.

If a person is otherwise healthy and only has lower igm, usually no worries. ...Read more

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.
Important point: Is why were they measured? His body has shown that his immunity is affected. The only way that you can upgrade it is by the art and science of good nutrition. That is actually the only way. Hinppocrates said "let food be your medicine and your medicine be your food" that was 400 bce and the rule still holds today because we have the same biology as they did in his era. ...Read more
