What Does It Mean That I Have A Low Ig M Level
Low IgM: Low IgM levels in and of themselves are not common, but can occur. If they occur with low IgG levels or with other clinical symptoms the diagnosis can be different.

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. A low igm level that is clinically relevant usually occurs in the presence of a low igg and/or IgA level. It is always best to treat a patient, not a number. If a person is otherwise healthy and only has lower igm, usually no worries. ...Read more

Not significant?: Good morning, low levels of igm by itself may not be significant. However, you have had health problems since childhood. There is a condition known as selective igm deficiency in which there is an absence of igm and normal levels of igg and iga. Igm does play a role in fighting infection as it is the first antibody produced in an acute infection. About 2.5% of people have lower than normal igm lev. ...Read more
IgM and IgA: Low levels of IgA and IgM may mean that you have an immune deficiency. If they are only slightly low and your igg is normal and you are able to respond to vaccines and do not have a lot of infections, there may be nothing to worry about.
