About Immunoglobulin a (total)

What is immunoglobulin A?

Immunoglobulin A (IgA) is a type of antibody typically produced by the immune system to protect against pathogens such as bacteria, viruses and parasites. These antibodies are important for protecting against infection in the mucous membranes of the lungs and intestines, as well as in saliva and tears.

Why take the test?

This test measures the level of IgA in the blood. It is typically used to check for deficiencies or elevated levels of IgA for investigations of recurrent infections or autoimmune conditions.
