I have received a letter from my Consultant saying that " Your immunoglobulin levels are slightly low, this will reduce your ability to fight off infections and I would like to refer you to a specialist team in Plymouth"
As I have had repeated back to back infections (but then haven't most of us) and been on non stop steroids for eighteen months, plus the dreaded pseudomonas bug that has taken up residence in my lungs. I am not surprised that my resistance is low,
The Consultant has always said that there was something different to normal causing the problems, and a gene missing can cause this. 10 out 10 for his persistence.
Has anyone else come across this, and if so how did you get on. I understand the treatment is a repeated course is injections, better than constant infections.
