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

Immunoglobulin M (Definition)

There are 5 classes of immune proteins: igg, iga, igm, ige and igd. Igm fights infection. If you produce too little then infections may occur and you have hypogammaglobulinemia. If you have too much you ...Read more

Reactivated EBV 9 months after first infection. Could i be immunodeficient? Antibody count: 65 ab VCA igm; 53 ea ab igg; 431 ab VCA igg; 289 ebna igg.

Reactivated EBV 9 months after first infection. Could i be immunodeficient? Antibody count: 65 ab VCA igm; 53 ea ab igg; 431 ab VCA igg; 289 ebna igg.

No: Unfortunately ebv stays alive forever in one's lymphocytes and can get activated easily in susceptible people without known immunodeficiency. However you may call that an immunodeficiency given that all people have been infected with it yet only few would have recurrent ebv problem. ...Read more

My brother recently tested positive for HBSAG. His HBV DNA is50000 iu/ml.IgM anti Hbc is REACTIVE.Hbe ag neg and hbe ab positive. Is it acute/chronic?

My brother recently tested positive for HBSAG. His HBV DNA is50000 iu/ml.IgM anti Hbc is REACTIVE.Hbe ag neg and hbe ab positive. Is it acute/chronic?

Recent infection: Positive HbSAg and IgM anti HbC suggest recent infection, but that does not mean it would not become chronic. Your brother needs to be monitored by a physician for proper treatment. ...Read more

I've been sick for about 3 weeks, mostly fatigue. My EBV levels are VCA IgG 153, VCA IgM <10, early AG IgG 25.7, nuclear antigen IgG 158. Any ideas?

I've been sick for about 3 weeks, mostly fatigue. My EBV levels are VCA IgG 153, VCA IgM <10, early AG IgG 25.7, nuclear antigen IgG 158. Any ideas?

No idea: First you would need to give us more details on the sickness other than just fatigue. The tests you have had are not helpful in making a diagnosis. I would recommend that you consult an internist to get a thorough workup since there are many causes for fatigue= both physiologic and psychologic. ...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?

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

Sir, my HBV DNA levels is 507 iu/ml .HBE AG -ve, ANTIBOBY HBE AG +ve, ALT 57iu/ml. I can't understand why ALT is Increased? Do i need treatment?

Sir, my HBV DNA levels is 507 iu/ml .HBE AG -ve, ANTIBOBY HBE AG +ve, ALT 57iu/ml. I can't understand why ALT is Increased? Do i need treatment?

Yes: 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, you did not state the level of ALT. More important is the presence of viral DNA in blood suggesting active infection, you should seek treatment for that. ...Read more

Please help if i can go ahead with my pregnancy
rubella antibody IgM 1.33 equivocal
rubella avidity IgG 71.90% high
rubella antibody IgG 34.4 reactive?

Rubella: Rubella, also known as the german measles, is an infection in which there is a rash on the skin. You are immunized against rubella with the positive igg. The igm should be repeated and you can ask for a nasal or throat swab sent for culture. Ask your ob! did you/do you have a rash or symptoms? ...Read more

My ELISA anti rubella IgG negative(0.13 ul/ml) and ELISA anti rubella IgM positive(>400). Is it safe to pregnancy. ?

No: Igm rubella indicates recent exposure and body response to it. It does not refer immunity. Hence baby at risk for congenital rubella. ...Read more

My THYROID ANTIBODY Peroxidase TPO Ab is 5 [0-34 IU/mL] and my THYROID ANTIBODY thyroglobulin Tg Ab is 161 [0-40 IU/mL]. What this mean?


My THYROID ANTIBODY Peroxidase TPO Ab is 5 [0-34 IU/mL] and my
THYROID ANTIBODY thyroglobulin Tg Ab is 161 [0-40 IU/mL]. What this mean?

Depends. : You have developed an auto antibody to your own thyroid tissue. Over time, this may cause excess thyroid hormone to be secreted (hyperthyroidism), but eventually if it becomes too damaged, you may develop thyroid deficiency (hypothyroidism). Check in with provider to look for signs of either condition. ...Read more

I'm hebs ag negative with a high anti hbs antibody from vaccination.  This week's test was reported as hebs ag detected with anti hbs antibody of 513 miu/ml. Lft normal....Scared....Lab error?

Yes: That sounds like lab error. Your hbsab would provide immunity; i'm assuming yoru hbcab (core) is negative; i wouldn't worry, talk to your doctor about a retest if you are concerned, but even if you were infected, there is no reason for treatment at this time. ...Read more

Immunofixation, Serum FAH = Monoclonal IgG kappa immunoglobulin. Beta FAH = 10.5% Abnormal band, immunofixation to follow. I'm IgA deficient too. ??

Immunofixation, Serum FAH = Monoclonal IgG kappa immunoglobulin.   Beta FAH = 10.5% Abnormal band, immunofixation to follow. I'm IgA deficient too. ??

Possibly: If I am understaning this right you have a monoclonal protien band? The most important next steps here would be to identify the band (immunofixation) and then perfrom quantitvaive immunoglobulin levels. IF there is a monoclonal band, you may very well have reciprocal depriciation of alternative immunoglobulins and IgA deficiecny with an IgG monoclonal protein is possible. ...Read more

IMy HBV test results (red cross): Hepatitis B Surface Antigen: Nonreactive; Hepatitis B Core Antibodies: Reactive; HBV PCR: Negative. Do I have HBV?

Cured, but...: If a person's Hep B surface antigen is nonreactive, that means the lab does not find pieces of the surface of the virus. If her Hep B virus PCR is negative, that means the lab does not find the virus's DNA (genes). If the core antibody is reactive that means her immune system REMEMBERS being infected with Hep B. She is cured, but some viral DNA might be attached to her own human DNA in her liver. ...Read more
