Immunoglobulins are antibodies that are produced by the body to protect itself from bacteria or viruses.  

IgM is the first antibody in an acute infection that the body generates.  This antibody is only temporary and will be substituted by IgG, providing a life-long defense against diseases.  

Increased IgM is correlated with Waldenström's macroglobulinemia, infectious mononucleosis, viral infections, nephrotic syndrome, and estrogen therapy  Reduced IgM is found in selective IgM deficiency, Bruton's Disease, and acquired immune deficiency.
