Ebv panel. Ebv nuc antigen igg=157, early ag igg=12.7, EBV VCA igg=112, EBV VCA igm=10.6. Please explain. Concerned about spleen. Symp=fatigue/fog?

Ebv panel. Ebv nuc antigen  igg=157, early ag igg=12.7, EBV VCA igg=112, EBV VCA igm=10.6.  Please explain.  Concerned about spleen. Symp=fatigue/fog?

? Active infection: It's impossible for me to answer with certainty since i don't know the normal ranges your lab uses. If early ag & vca igm are elevated above normal this indicates active ebv infection.I don't know if it is acute or chronic without knowing your history. If chronic i see that as a sign of poor immune function.Immune-boosting herbs/supplements & IV vit c drips may help, but find why immunity is poor. ...Read more

Monotest (target values <1.0=negativ). Values: EBV VCA IgG-Ak 39.9; EBV VCA IgM-Ak 1.1; EBNA-1 IgG-Ak 14.7; EBV DNA (PCR) negativ. What does it mean?

Ask who ordered: The test, but in general, they were suspecting EBV infection/Infectious mononucleosis, which looks negative, the final diagnosis is with the doctor who ordered the blood test. Clinical picture is important, finally we treat patients not lab results, good luck ...Read more

I have CBC test where monocytes are high, liver enzymes ALT high; also EBV IgG positive, CMV IgG positive CMV IgM normal.. Hiv negative at 32 weeks.

I have CBC test where monocytes are high, liver enzymes ALT high; also EBV IgG positive, CMV IgG positive CMV IgM normal.. Hiv negative at 32 weeks.

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. Having said that, it would help to have the actual values of the results. The one item of interest is high ALT. If you drink alcohol, stop entirely for three months and redo the test. Other results are okay. ...Read more

Lupus panel negative. Sed rate 30 should b under 20. Ana positive w/ spec pattern. Serum protein electrophoresis test normal. Cbc ok. Metabolic ok.?

Lupus panel negative. Sed rate 30 should b under 20. Ana positive w/ spec pattern. Serum protein electrophoresis test normal. Cbc  ok. Metabolic ok.?

Any joint pain?: Positive ANA and elevated sed rate. If you have joint pains it would be advisable to follow up with a rheumatologist. You have some kind of inflammatory process going on. Both test are very nonspecific and further work-up is needed. ...Read more

Negative ANA, negative Anti-DSDNA, negative Sjögren antibodies, normal ESR, normal C-RP, normal CBC. Does this rule out lupus or Sjögren syndrome?

Negative ANA, negative Anti-DSDNA, negative Sjögren antibodies, normal ESR, normal C-RP, normal CBC. Does this rule out lupus or Sjögren syndrome?

Yes, I would say : Your chance of of having lupus or Sjogren is less than 1 to 2% with those negative serology. But I would say majority (if not all) of rheumatologist would likely advise you to look for other diagnosis unless you have tissue biopsy to suggest otherwise. ...Read more

Help with blood results: EBV VCA IgG >8.0, EBV IgM neg. CMV antibody IgG 38, EBV NA antibody >8.0. Can it explain my body aches? Why or why not?

Old infection: with EBV is the pattern of IgG positive (including NA) and IgM negative. I assume the CMV which is a different infection is also the IgG? If so, both are old infections and do not usually explain your current symptoms. This is a pattern that shows immunity to these infections. Look for other causes. ...Read more

Autoimmune disease: Autoimmune disease like lupus/sle is in the top of my differential diagnosis. Go and discuss with your pcp. Your pcp can refer you to see a rheumatologist as indicated. ...Read more

Cmv IgG positive CMV IgM postive , all CMV infectious disease blood tests are postitive. Liver enzymes slight elevated , what do I have? Cmv is what

Cmv IgG positive  CMV IgM postive , all CMV infectious disease blood tests are postitive. Liver enzymes slight elevated , what do I have? Cmv  is what

CMV: Is cytomegalovirus and is similar to mono. It is causing the positive blood tests and the elevated liver enzymes. It is very common. You will recover. In the meantime, I do suggest seeing an acupuncturist and chinese medicine practitioner as it can really help your body recover faster. ...Read more

How about Ana screen positive, Ana titer (ifa) 1:80 Hi, and pattern speckled?

How about it?: Up to a quarter of women your age have an ANA (immunofluorescent antibody) at a low titer like yours with a speckled pattern. If there's a question of whether you have lupus or one of its relatives, it's a piece of information to note and file for future reference. A negative ANA would rule several things out. Your result proves nothing positive. Best wishes. ...Read more

Elevated EBV ab VCA IgG <8 and EBV nucleaer antigen ab IgG test 4.2. & anti-dna(ss)igg ab qn ( 119)& c react protien(5.6) what are implications?

Elevated EBV ab VCA IgG <8 and EBV nucleaer antigen  ab IgG test 4.2. & anti-dna(ss)igg ab qn ( 119)& c react protien(5.6)  what are implications?

Nothing.: Ebv antibodies indicate you had a previous infection, but not active. The c-reactive protein needs a units indicator - that is either normal or somewhat elevated. The anti ss dna is extremely nonspecific and very rarely indicated; I have no idea why that was ordered, discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

EBV early antigen Ab, IgG <9; EBV Eb, VcA, IgG >600; EBV nuclear antigen Ab IgG 108. Diagnossed with CAEBV infection. Does this sound right to you?

Maybe.: The profile is of a past infection. I am not sure if it can be diagnosed just by symptoms and evidence of past infection. I think you would need the second criteria of diagnosis which is DNA of EBV in peripheral tissue or blood detectable through PCR test with a low anti-EA. Have other diagnoses like Lyme's been tested for? ID specialist. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3245398/ ...Read more
