WELCOME TO THE COMMUNITY: This Patient-To-Patient Community is for discussions relating to Bleeding Disorders. There are many types of blood disorders, including: bleeding disorders, platelet disorders, hemophilia and anemia.
Normal values are 40-230 and mine was 375. Is this ok or should I be worried? All other screening was perfectly normal just IGM value was high. Not much info on Google except scary stuff and it doesn't give good ranges of what to even look for.
Also IGA and IGG a perfectly normal. I decided to have all bloodwork done because I quit smoking a week and a half ago and still feel horrible. I also had a nuclear stress test done and a ct with contrast about a week ago. Don't know if that matters.
The IgM levels could be high due to a recent infection—may be viral or a fungal infection. Also a recent stress like quitting smoking can raise the levels. Good job at quitting smoking! Stick to it! Once you get over this withdrawal phase, the IgM levels should fall back to normal. Meanwhile ask your doctor to treat your withdrawal symptoms so that you are not lured towards smoking again. Take care!
