low iga

does a low iga mean anything?  I had a blood test in 2007 and my iga was 64.  I've had another in Dec. 2008 and now it shows at 52.    Should I look into this or could this just be normal for me.  My doctor said the normal range is between 80 and 100.

I'm IGA deficient too and been told that there's really nothing I can do about it. I get sick a lot (a lot less since my tonsils came out though) and I have vitiligo because of it too.
All I do is try to eat healthy and take multivitamins.

Your physician isn't treating you with gamma globulin ?

No, is it something I should look into? I was diagnosed 10 years ago and was told there was no treatment.

Yes and especially if you are still having health issues.

Good luck and if you can... let me know what happens !

I am so sorry that you have this condition. From the ltitle bit that I've been reading on IgA deficiency, it sounds similiar to Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome  (that is what I have). You may want to ask your physician about an immune system boosting supplement called "Transfer Factor" (google for more information).

I hope you keep us posted and you are always welcome to post in MedHelp's fibro/CFS forum. I am one of the Community Leaders in the forum.
