Have you been tested for IGA Deficiency?

I'm curious how many of you have been tested for IGA deficiency and if you have, if you're deficient.

Hi David
I have been diagnosed with monoclonal gammopathy of undefined significance (MGUS)
and produce too much IgG.
There has been no mention of IGA but the electrophoresis would analyse for IGA and IGM
So I think my answer is a yes., but not as related to Crohn's tests.I have not placed it in your rating above.
I was diagnosed with the gammopathy three years before the Crohn's diagnosis., and have to be checked annually for its status.

Mind posting what that is David so people know what you're referring to? I'm off to look it up right now. :P

Edit: After reading this: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0002447/ I still have no idea what I just read and dunno what it is or why I should be tested for it. Dunno if I ever was.
