Hi.  Type 1 diabetes is autoimmune.

Having one autoimmune condition, is also associated with having other autoimmune conditions.   Thus, the IGG and IGM levels may be related to autoimmune conditions, though not necessarily directly to diabetes.

On the other hand, though, maintaining normal blood sugar levels is pretty important to keeping your immune system working as best as possible.

Does this low immunoglobulin level will affect my test results for viral infection such as dengue, HIV,Malaria etc
