Know more about Immunoglobulin M (IgM) test

An immunoglobulin test measures the level of certain immunoglobulins, or antibodies, in the blood.

This test is ordered when a person has symptoms of an immunoglobulin deficiency such as recurrent infections, especially of the respiratory tract (sinus, lungs) or gastrointestinal tract (stomach, intestines), and/or chronic diarrhea. 

Immunoglobulins testing may also be ordered when a person has signs of chronic inflammation or chronic infection and when a health practitioner suspects excess or abnormal immunoglobulin production. 

The approach to treatment includes identification of comorbid conditions; preventive measures to reduce the risk of infection; and prompt, rigorous, and effective treatment of infections. Functional endoscopic sinus surgery can frequently help relieve chronic obstruction and promote drainage. Tympanostomy tubes may also be helpful in reducing the risk of decreased hearing and secondary defective speech development in children with chronic suppurative otitis related to antibody deficiency. 

General: There is currently no cure for selective IgA deficiency. While many patients do not require any medical treatment, some may need antibiotics to treat infections commonly associated with the disorder. For unknown reasons, some patients gradually develop normal levels of IgA without treatment. Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) therapy, which is often used to treat other primary immunodeficiencies, should not be used to treat selective IgA deficiency because some patients may develop antibodies to IgA. Once antibodies are created, severe reactions, including anaphylaxis (life-threatening allergic reaction), may occur if the patient receives IVIG. Antibiotics: Antibiotics are prescribed to treat infections commonly associated with selective IgA deficiency. The type of medication, dose, and duration depend on the type and severity of infection, as well as the patient's overall health. Commonly prescribed antibiotics for ear infections include amoxicillin

Antibiotics are prescribed to treat associated bacterial infections. These should be taken for the full term prescribed. 

Nonprescription pain relievers may be taken to treat minor pain and fever. Acetaminophen (not aspirin) should be given to children. 

Patients with IgA deficiency should receive vaccines to protect them against flu viruses and pneumococcal pneumonia. 

Measures must be taken to control underlying disorders that may be associated with IgA deficiency. These include malignant tumors, asthma, and autoimmune disorders (such as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus). 

Test Method 1 : The test requires a blood sample, which is drawn through a needle from a vein in your arm. 

Report available : Turn around time is 24 hours. 

A person have the following symptoms should get this done: This test is ordered when a person has symptoms of an immunoglobulin deficiency such as recurrent infections, especially of the respiratory tract (sinus, lungs) or gastrointestinal tract (stomach, intestines), and/or chronic diarrhea. 

Immunoglobulins testing may also be ordered when a person has signs of chronic inflammation or chronic infection and when a health practitioner suspects excess or abnormal immunoglobulin production.
