  • Hi Jeff,I was diagnosed with this many years ago and have benefitted tremendously from gammaglobulin. I always was sick before and almost died from it...pnuemonia...etc....You need to see a specialist in your area to confirm this diagnosis. For months after I was diagnosed I recieved very poor medical treatment.UCSF, Stanford, OHSU, Duke, all are familiar with this and many more qualified out there.But you can really get the go around if you don't find someone who really is an expert.My husband and I live in Oregon. What state do you live in?IDF on the web is Immune Deficiency Foundation can give you a lot of help.Hope this helps.Mary
