Dr. Braverman,
My IVF clinic had me update some blood tests last week in preparation for my FET. My OB drew the blood since my IVF clinic is in another state. Anyway, my OB's called today and said that everything was fine except that my Hemoglobulin Immunoglobulin G was high @ 17.39. They faxed the results to my IVF clinic, but I haven't heard back from them yet. Should I be concerned about this level and I was wondering if this is due to my immune issues and if this level being high would hinder a successful transfer? I did have elevated NK's and Cytokines, but they have came down with Simponi and IVIG. I had an IVIG 6 days prior to these bloodtests. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks.

High IGG levels can be associated with antibody mediated pregnancy loss. I would need to see which cytokines and which NK cells were elevated and what their level was. IVIG is a good treatment for these elevations, but to give you an opinion on the best therapy I would have to review all your results and most likely add new ones.
