I have abnormal immuniglobulin subsets tests.  What do they mean?
Do I have an infection?  I feel sick and tired with SEVERE FATIGUE.

Hi,
What other symptoms are present? Elevated levels of IgG are consistent with, but not diagnostic of, IgG4-related disease. This can also be found in  disorders such as multicentric Castleman disease, allergic disorders, Churg-Strauss syndrome, sarcoidosis, and a large number of other conditions. It is best that you discuss the results with your attending physician for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
