In brief: See immunologist

If her igg levels are low for age, then she should see an immunologist.
(children at different ages have different expected igg levels). Sometimes a low igg level in a 1 year old will self-resolve (hypogammaglobulinemia of infancy), and sometimes it can be an early presenation of other immune issues (like common variable immunodeficiency).

In brief: Low IgA and IgG

It depends how low and if she is past infancy and if she is having recurrant respiratory or urinary symptoms.
Then she should see an immunologist.
