See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, your information suggests chronic infection and you need to talk to your doctor about getting it treated.
Wish you good health!
