What Does Vca Ab Igm Mean When Postivie
What does it mean to have a positive IgM p41 ab but IgM p39 ab. And IgM p23 ab. Are negative? What causes p41 to be present?
Unlikely lyme: P41 is not very specific for Lyme and 1.5 percent of general population may have it likely as protection against getting Lyme that is inherited rather than acquired. The other negative tests also confirm that u do not have it, but Lyme disease is a clinical diagnosis and all factors need to be considered. If you are still having symptoms, work with your doctor to get to the button of the problem ...Read more
Mono test: The EBV antibody viral capsid antigen IgG appears within 7 days after infection and last for life. The IGM antibody appears in 7 days, but lasts 3 months. Labs are various on tere actual levels, so you will need to talk to your provider about the levels in accordance with the labs norms. ...Read more
Blood Clots too much: Beta-2 glycoprotein 1 antibody tests are used to help find the cause of unexplained blood clots (thrombotic episodes) or recurrent miscarriages. Also used to diagnose antiphospholipid syndrome (APS), or to detect the autoantibodies in someone with another autoimmune disorder. Sometimes may be ordered with cardiolipin antibody and lupus anticoagulant testing. IgG, IgM or IgA may be elevated. ...Read more
On ceruplasmin test hep A AB Total reactive ref range U mean? Also Hep A AB (IGM) nonreactive ref range U mean? What am I testing positive for?
Lab tests: You do not give a value for the ceruloplasm. If you have antibodies to Hepatitis A virus and the IgG is positive and the IgM negative it suggests that you were immunized for hepatitis A or had infection in the past. Why not discuss these values with the doctor who ordered them? ...Read more
Hb core ab-igm non reactive hepatitis b core ab total reactive and hep b surface antigen non reactive what does this mean?
2 years ago I had lyme ab screen mildly elevevated but western blot all non reactive. Now im testing pos for igm 23 and igm 41. What does this mean?
Interpret clinically: Lyme is known to be 'tricky'. The first set of tests I would ignore, since the Western blot was totally negative. In the second case, this could indicate an acute exposure since you've got 2 out of 3 IgM bands. You definitely need to talk to the doctor about these- since the lab work needs to be interpreted in the right clinical context. Sometimes lab tests come up as 'false positive'. See ID doc. ...Read more
Could you tell me why my hepatitis C ab, IgM read reactive a and the signal to cut off is 28.70 m <1.00 mean?
Hi, what is that result means? Herpes virus ab profile blood, hsv igg 5.79 unit isr. Hsv Igm result negative/reference range negative.
I had blood test for Chlamydia. Result says IgG Ab >/= 1:16 and IgM Ab < 1:16. Does it mean that I had it in the past but not currently?
Maybe past infection: The chlamydia blood tests are pretty much useless. This only indicates you have had infection sometime in your life with chlamydia, or with related non-STD bacteria. (For example, Chlamydophila pneumoniae causes bronchitis etc, is very common, and also give pos result on the blood test.) It's a useless test to diagnose current infection. If at risk, you need a vaginal swab or urine test. ...Read more
Maybe nothing?: Igm is a type of antibody you make to help fight infections. Slightly low igm by itself may not mean anything (i.e., your nature level). If it is very low, or other antibodies are also low (or not functioning), it may be a sign of immune deficiency that can lead to more infections. If you have? S, see a clinical immunologist. They can help determine if your immune system is functioning properly. ...Read more
IgM: IgM is an antibody that is produced in response, such as to an infection, with subsequent switching to a more customized antibody such as IgG antibody (usually at day 7 to 10 after exposure). Hence, IgM usually reflects lack of memory to an antigen and is a sign of an acute infection. There are extremely rare conditions associated with elevated IgM but usually occur early in life. ...Read more
Depends: The "normal ranges" for all lab tests include 95% of the "normal" population; thus, 2.5% of people are above the upper limit, and 2.5% are below the lower limit. There's nothing to worry about if your values are a little bit above the normal range, but a very elevated IgM could be a sign of a problem. You need to check with the physician who ordered the tests to interpret your results. ...Read more
Immune test: The body normally makes immunoglobulins iga, igg, igm, ige and igd. Low or absent IG levels are seen in patients with recurrent infections. A low igm level that is clinically relevant usually occurs in the presence of a low igg and/or IgA level. It is always best to treat a patient, not a number. If a person is otherwise healthy and only has lower igm, usually no worries. ...Read more
Low IgM: Low IgM levels in and of themselves are not common, but can occur. If they occur with low IgG levels or with other clinical symptoms the diagnosis can be different. Isolated low IgM can be caused by a variety of factors, and often eventually resolves. See an immunologist for further evaluation to determine the cause. ...Read more
Last month I have igm (toxo) weakly positive (>0.6):igg1410.30, this month IgM positive but igg1330.10. What does it mean? Is it be safe? Igm higher?
No: This may mean that you are having an active infection when the igm titer is rising. ...Read more
IgM and IgA: Low levels of IgA and IgM may mean that you have an immune deficiency. If they are only slightly low and your igg is normal and you are able to respond to vaccines and do not have a lot of infections, there may be nothing to worry about. We need a lot of history and additional blood tests to understand what any particular level of antibodies in the blood means. ...Read more
IgA, IgM: Were they low to start with? Did you attemt to treat them? Some variation is testing as well as the body is normal. Should be same lab, same method, similar results. ...Read more
High white cell?: Low IgM per se is unlikely to be of major clinical importance but a persistently high WBC requires further evaluation by a hematologist in the absence of an acute or chronic infection. On the other hand, a transiently elevated WBC (no more than a week duration) is likely from an acute infection be it viral or bacterial. ...Read more
Last month I have igm (toxo) weakly positive (>0.6), this month IgM positive but IgG depreciate. What does it mean?
Phases of infection: Igm is the antibody that is 1st to rev up in early phases of infection. Then as the body begins to fight infection it produces more igg antibodies. The body keeps igg around as a "memory" so it can respond more quickly and vigorously if it sees that infection again. The duration and efficacy of the memory is variable. This is also how vaccinations work. ...Read more
HSV antibodies: Igm is always the first antibody your body produces in response to an infection. After awhile, your body "switches" to making igg for long-term immunity. Once it starts making igg, it slows down in producing igm, and eventually stops making it. So if you have igm, it means you have had the infection, and you acquired it relatively recently. If you only have igg, it means you had it longer ago. ...Read more
Antiphospholipids: Autoimmune antibodies can be formed against natural (normal) cell surface proteins. When this happens, adverse effects can occur. Anti-cardiolipin antibodies have been associated with abnormal blood clotting events and recurrent spontaneous miscarrages. See a hematology specialist for advice on this problem. ...Read more
Early vs late: Igm is the immunoglobulin noted for coming out early in response to any illness, it fades over time while igg come out a bit later and stays up longer. If you have a positive IgM it indicates a early response, while igg would probably show up in a few months at which point the IgM would have declined. ...Read more
