IgM Helps Predict Diabetic Complications

Posted Aug 13 2009 7:52pm
A new study in BMC Medicine found that diabetics with a higher excretion of IgM (short for immunoglobulin M, an antibody present on B cells) have a three time higher risk of end stage renal disease and death from cardiovascular disease. Testing for urine IgM may help predict future diabetic complications. BMC Medicine 2009, 7:39doi:10.1186/1741-7015-7-39
