Immunoglobulins IgG IgM IgA Blood Test
- You often get recurrent infections
- You want to assess the strength of your immune system
- You want to see if you are deficient in any of these 3 subclasses
This test measures the amount of immunoglobulins A, G, and M (IgA, IgG, IgM) in the blood to evaluate your immune system status and to to detect or monitor an excess or deficiency in one or more of the immunoglobulin classes.
Immunoglobulin M (IgM) – IgM antibodies are produced as a first response to a new "non-self" antigen, providing short-term protection.
Immunoglobulin G (IgG) – Around 70-80% of the immunoglobulins in the blood are IgG. Specific IgG antibodies are produced during an initial infection and the body retains a catalogue of IgG antibodies that can be rapidly reproduced whenever exposed to the same antigen. IgG antibodies form the basis of long-term protection against microorganisms.Immunoglobulin A (IgA) – IgA comprises about 15% of the total lung and stomach secretions, and breast milk.
IgA provides protection against infection in mucosal areas of the body.
