I posted this in another thread, but since Complement Deficiencies are congenial immune disorders, I figured I would post this on here as well. Any help or similar stories would be greatly appreciated!
A new doctor I'm seeing was looking through past medical records, and noticed that blood tests from when I was younger (I'm 18 now) showed that all of my complement levels were low. He's repeating the tests to see if they're still low, and said that if that's the case then I have a congenial complement disorder.
My question is this: After doing some research, everything I've found about complement deficiencies seems to be about specific complements that are low (C3 deficiency, C2 deficiency, etc.). What does it mean when all of the complements are low? Would it just be that I possibly have multiple complement deficiencies? Or is there a separate name and disorder when all of the complement levels are low?
I hope I'll get the results from the blood test pretty soon and then I can talk to my doctor, but I really would like to know information ASAP.
