Dear Susan

“IG” is an abbreviation used which represents “immature granulocytes”. The presence of immature granulocytes in one’s blood is usually an indication of an early-stage response of the body to an infection, inflammation or any other stimulus to one’s bone marrow.

It is suggested that you request your treating physician whether he/she has identified the cause of the presence of immature granulocytes in your blood. It is always better to know the cause of any change in one’s body so that the correct corrective steps can be taken. There is no cause of alarm, however, you should arrange for a follow-up visit to your treating physician. (MCH).
