Treatment for (low) IgA deficiency

Posted by johanhead @johanhead, Oct 12, 2022

I am posting this here because I do not see an "Immunology" topic. If I should have posted this elsewhere, I apologize.)

I just learned that I have no measurable IgA. My doctor (not a Mayo doc) has ordered more tests for me, but is being cagey about what medications I would take for this and I don't understand why. Seems like it would be IVIg or SCIg meds, but I cannot find one that isn't contra-indicated against using for low IgA. (It seems they cause clots???) Does anyone else have this problem and what treatment is available? I need to know for selecting a health plan with a complimentary formulary next year.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Blood Cancers & Disorders Support Group.

Also, I have found that ozone IVs are tremendous and amazing…
