imuugobulin m deficiency

Mar 30, 2013

Doc, have you ever heard of anyone trying or being treated with IVIG like Gamunex for IGM Def. only.?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

In general, people with isolated IgM deficiency would not benefit from IVIG, as that is made up of IgG. If there is a history of recurrent infections then antibiotics may be in order, and if there is a documented history of poor vaccine antibody response, then IVIG might be considered.
