IgA deficiency

Hi all,

Was wondering if anyone can advise further on what the above is?

I have been told I am IgA deficient with a level of 0.3. My GP gave me some info about what it is and that it can't be picked up. Does anyone have any further advice about it or any stories about living with it, just so I know what I'm up against? If it helps, I am also iron and vit d deficient (both severely).

I have also been informed (not by dr) that people with IgA deficiency should wear medic alert bracelets/ID? Does anyone know for sure on this, wasn't sure why?

Many thanks for any help anyone can give.

Re: IgA deficiency

I did a quick google search of IgA deficiency and came up with this:

A.D.A.M. Medical Encyclopedia.

Selective deficiency of IgA

IgA deficiency

Last reviewed: May 26, 2012.

Selective deficiency of IgA is the most common immune deficiency disorder. Persons with this disorder have low or absent levels of a blood protein called immunoglobulin A.

It goes on to list causes, symptoms and treatment. I hope this helps.
