My 3 yr old had several tests done and the IgG was 415, auto abs NRBC is 0.00, Auto Abs mono 1.19 and auto mono% 14.9. Should I worry?

My 3 yr old had several tests done and the IgG was 415, auto abs NRBC is 0.00,  Auto Abs mono 1.19 and auto mono% 14.9. Should I worry?

Yes: The IgG is low and points to an impaired immune system. The results of the blood test do not appear to be correct (whether it is abnormal or not is another issue). You need to discuss with doctor about the problem leading to the testing being obtained in the first place. ...Read more

Toxoplasma IgG and IgM test results; what should they be if I am immune?

Toxoplasma IgG and IgM test results; what should they be if I am immune?

No true immunity: When one meets the toxoplasmosis organism (mild flu-like or no illness), IgM usually appears and may stay around for as long as 18 months. Igg will also appear and usually stay for life, suggesting you overcame the creatures. However, they may still be alive and dormant, to re-emerge should you become immunocompromised. ...Read more

What is the relation between herpes IgG and IgM blood tests and having cidp?

What is the relation between herpes IgG and IgM blood tests and having cidp?

See below: Actually, look at it a little differently. Forget herpes, which has no known association with cidp, but if an anti-gm-1 test is done and there is elevation of igg, not igm, this would alter the diagnosis to multifocal motor neuropathy (mmn), which is a similar disorder to cidp, but may be handled differently in some cases. ...Read more

Is it possible to have a Lyme infection with a negative IgG but positive igm?

Is it possible to have a Lyme infection with a negative IgG but positive igm?

Yes: 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
