Yes, I've had it tested twice and it was extremely low both times. I'm convinced it's close to the root of my illness.

Hi @Ema, this pdf gets error, says empty file. Any chance you gave a copy you can repost? Just got SIgA results that were high and trying to do more research. Most people seem to have low siga so I'm interested in understanding more. All 8pm finding is it is indication of infection.
It's only about low sIgA unfortunately...

Here's a copy of it at this link though:
