  • 70 Igg? Are you sure. That is extremely low. My husband has CVID and hypogammaglobulinanemia. He got gamma globulin shots as a child. Though no one was to give them to him now. He has chronic ear and sinus infections - and he is 45. We are looking for a new ENT right now for further treatment.The AMA says you should receive gamma globulins at 500 or below - but most of those patients have AIDS or some life threatening cancers.
