My son is quite a bit older, 24, but he has low IgG. His LLMD sent us to an immunologist who ran a lot of tests and then told us that they didn't believe in chronic Lyme and Dan didn't exactly fit the criteria for someone with low IgG in that he hadn't had a lot of infections ie. sinus, ear infections, bronchial problems, but they would go out on a limb and give him a trial of 6 mos of immunoglobulins. It's called Viva Globin. He's been on it almost 2 mos. and we are seeing some improvements in his fatigue and cognitive functioning. His seizures and myoclonic jerks are only slightly under better control. They come almost on schedule - every 3 weeks. They told us that it would be a slow process and it is, but as I said there is some improvement.
I know other people who have low IgG and have gone on either IVIG or Viva Globin and have seen real improvements. So we are very hopeful.
I hope this helps you in some way.
