+315 - IgG, IgA, and IgM Immune Test Results

Here are the results from his immunoglobulin test. Dr. Argawal would like to see him sustain these numbers. They will discuss moving his IVIG infusions to every 6 weeks instead of every 4 weeks. The numbers are in normal range. Please pray he can sustain them.

IgA - 1.67 (range for 3 year olds: 0.22 - 1.59)
IgG - 6.36 (range: 4.41 - 11.35)
IgM - 0.92 (range: 0.47 - 2.00)

Before BMT:

IgA 0.64
IgG 4.51
IgM 0.20

His immune system before transplant was not too bad. This is why we were not going to do the BMT. It was the brain hemorrhage that made us move quickly towards BMT.

The doctors pay more attention to the IgG because they are the most abundant class of antibodies found in blood serum and lymphs and activate against bacteria, fungi, viruses, and foreign particles.
