What is an Immunoglobulin G(IgG) test?
IgG represents immunoglobulin G, a kind of antibody. Antibodies are proteins developed by the immune system to battle infections, bacteria, and other outside substances. It is a simple blood test that estimates the level of Immunoglobulin G antibodies in the blood. Elevated amounts of IgG can mean that an individual has an autoimmune disorder. An autoimmune disorder makes an individual’s immune system to attack healthy cells, tissues, and organs unintentionally. These disorders can cause genuine medical issues. IgG is one of the most well-known antibodies in the blood circulation and represents about 75% of serum antibodies. The Immunoglobulin G is formed by plasma B cells and is vital to the protection of body tissues against disease. It also shields the baby in the utero from any disease. Immunoglobulin G is additionally responsible for the adjustment of allergic reactions and can also restrict IgE mediated anaphylaxis. There are 4 subtypes of IgG – IgG1, IgG2, IgG3 and IgG4.
