Hello Theresa
Thank you for getting in touch with us. As I see, your husband has a past history of CVID. Common Variable Immune Deficiency is a disorder characterized by low levels of immunoglobins (antibodies). The result of these defects is that the patient doesn't produce sufficient antibodies in response to exposure to pathogens. As a result, the patient's immune system fails to protect them against common bacterial and viral infections. The net result is that the patient is susceptible to illness. It is not as deadly as severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID). Serum Bilirubin, SGPT, SGOT tests are used to check the function of liver. These are not markers for cancer. As his platelet count is still high, he can fight infections on his own and the spleen is working properly. Hope this helps
