    high igA in blood and low bone density

    I am 76, male. I have recently been diagnosed with osteoporosis( t-score 4.3) and a blood test also indicates a high level of igA in my blood) 4.32) .

    The endocrinologist I have just seen for my condition(S) attributes my O.P. at least partially, to the high igA level.

    She hinted that this excess igA in the blood ( if I understand correctly) somehow migrates to the bone density. The mechanism is still not clear, though, not even in broad lines because she was pressed for time.

    As a well educated, intellectually curious person, I'd like to better understand.
    can anybody explain this to me>

    Thanks

    Ittiandro

    Hi there, just wanted to send hugs. I don’t have any answers but am in the same position with very high IgA and osteoporosis. From what I understand there does seem to be a link.

    Check with a rheumatology practice and see if they have an osteopororis clinic or if there is one in your town. My rheumy ran me thru the one at the local medical school clinic and it was very informative.

    My iga readings were 27,000 mg/l so they are now testing for multiple myeloma which is linked with IgA and bone fragility.
    Best of luck to you
