... Hi all. My husband was diagnosed with hypogammaglobulinemia in 1982. He has had IVIG treatment on and off since, but for the past year he has had sub cut Ig as a weekly infusion.

... Hi, Am hoping for a bit of advice and hopefully some clarity. Have posted this in the immune section as that is the specialist I’m currently under.

In addition, also get a cold every 6-8... (3 replies)
... Hi BethMi, I'm just now seeing this post, but I see that it is rather old. By now you have probably made your decision but I wanted to see how you were doing and find out what you ended up doing.

... g said, many people are started on subq FIRST. I find this is for a couple of reasons, seeing a doc who doesn't treat a large population of PIDD patients OR the IGG levels are not all that low to begin with.
