what is difference between IgM and IgG for western blot for lyme. positive for IgM but not IgG, what does that mean? tks
Recent infection: Hi. IgM is present only with recent infection. After IgM levels fall away, IgG takes over for ongoing and recurrent exposure to antigen. (The antibodies in this picture are IgG's). I'm glad your doc was on the ball. She/he may have saved you a world of hurt by making the diagnosis promptly. Good luck! ...Read more
My brucella IgG came back 0.03 and IgM 0.07. What does that mean? Also does that mean that I have a low immune system? Please help! thank you
Epidemiology of EBV: Studies show that the Epstein Barr Virus is ubiquitous in all human populations. Children acquire the disease and seroconvert in the first few years of life. Studies also show that EBV titers are high in young children and then in persons above 50 years old. IGM antibodies are usually seen in early infection IGG antibodies immunity or memory response. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK47424/ ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does a Hepatitis A Total Antibody test look for IgM antibodies or IgG antibodies? Or does it look for both? Does it differentiate between the two on the results?
Remote infection: Igm is the first class of antibody made to a microbe and after several months the immune system starts to make igg class of antibodies and then the immune system stops making igm. If all that is found is igg to a particular microbe it means that you were infected over about 6 months to many years previously. ...Read more
You've met it: 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 test result range for both negative & positive for HSV antibodies IgM & igg? Ex. <0.9 ... Etc
Differs by lab: What you are asking is for the normal "reference ranges" for these tests. Reference ranges are established by each laboratory based on their testing equipment and vary from lab to lab. There is no universal reference range for these or other lab tests. You would need to ask for the range at the lab where the tests were run. ...Read more

Candida antibody IgM high 1.2. Candida antibody IgG high 1.9. Candida antibody IgA high 1.5. What does this mean? Yeast overgrowth?
Would IgM antibodies for HSV 1 and 2 still be present after being infected years ago? Or do IgM antibodies "disappear" and then IgG takes over?
IgM are temporary: This question of yours has been answered repeatedly in the past. I am curious as to why you keep asking this. ...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.
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
Herpes antibody test 2.05 IgM for HSV-2 and 0.05 IgG for HSV-2, do I have the viris or not? My Dr. said that he thinks not, I don't know what to think
IgM versus IgG: You very well may have an early infection with herpes. You cannot know for certain without a follow up test. I would wait six weeks and then repeat the tests. If the IgG is still negative then, you do not have the infection. Sometimes the IgM testing picks up HSV1 and cannot distinguish it. ...Read more
What does a high EBV viral nuclear capsid antibody, a high EBV viral capsid antibody IgG and a high IgM EBV viral capsid antibody mean, what's it mean?
Likely immunity,,: You've got antibodies to the ebv which likely means you were infected at some time in your life and you recovered and now your body has circulating antibodies to it. An igg antibody in particular indicates long term resistance. This virus usually causes asymptomatic infection so you probably fought it off and weren't aware of it. Best of luck. ...Read more
