Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
Hi I'm Dr. Phil
Can I ask your first name?
Nice to meet you
I agree with you here
You definitely need an immune workup
I would advise a referral to an immunologist
You should have T cell subsets, complement, and immunoglobulins checked to start
This could be a variety of immune disorders
CVID is one example that is common
you're welcome Moira
any more questions for me?
I have read a bit on the internet about CVID. How is it treated?
It depends on how severe it is
some folks need immunoglobulin
infusions every few months that is
Thanks for this. It is good information for me to take to my doctor.
Any more questions for me on this?
