I have agamma globulin anaemia.
I was diagnosed in about 1968, it is fairly rare.
I have been receiving gamma globulin initially in the early 70's by injection in New Zealand. However since moving to Australia have been getting the gamma globulin infusion every 4 weeks.
This helps me fight bacterial infections. This infusion definately seems to help. As well I have asthma. However I would just like to let you know that a diagnosis of this deficiency does not necessarily mean that you will become very ill.
If I dont have the gamma globulin I am at a higher risk of picking up bacterial pneumonia or menangitis.
