Hello Exosurf,

I would not be too concerned just yet; tests are sometimes skewed by other factors. Ask your doctor to repeat the test, making sure you are well hydrated when you do. If it is still low, then you should have a urine test done. If that is suggestive of kidney disease, then you should discuss the results with your primary care doctor, a nephrologist, and your neurologist. You might need to change brands, frequency, etc. of IVIg, switch to subcutaneous Ig, use an immunosuppressant, or use plasma exchange.

Hoping that the result was a fluke,
