I'm Back with a question about immunoglobulins

511 Views 11 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  SLEMAYBE
Hello all,

It's been awhile. I'm still suffering with pancreatitis/liver symptoms and haven't been well in a long time. Recently they found deficiencies in some of my immunoglobulin subsets and an elevation in another. Deficient in IgG 1 and 3 and elevated in IgG 4. Also my parathyroid (PtH) was at the high normal. Any of this ring a bell for anyone?

Thanks for any help...

You might want to try looking up the different tests on

I'm so sorry to hear you are still struggling with the pancreatitis - I understand that is a pretty miserable thing to go through. Hang tough, and remember this community is here to support you and answer your questions.

:( Wow, you are going through alot right now. Pluerisy is just the pits, let alone to combine it with all the other things you are having to contend with. Be sure to take good care of yourself.

You didn't say, but are you consulting with a rheumatologist? All signals certainly point to an autoimmune/rheumatoid type disease. You stated "they" didn't want to make a firm diagnosis yet. Is this a specialist, or just your primary physician you are refering to?

Further, have you been tested for antiphospholipid syndrome (Hughes syndrome or APS)? With livedo and hypercoagulability, as well as the IgG problems, it certainly would be worth looking into if you have not already. You can finds links with that information on the home page of this site.

Let us know how you are getting along, and good luck!
