Hsv 1/2 antibody blood tests -- would this blood test always test IgG and igm? Hsv 2 negative -- i assume for both IgG and igm?
HSV testing: Igm is the first antibody type to be produced in an immune reaction to a foreign invader such as a virus. Over time, the igm response changes to igg.

The physician selects the appropriate test depending upon the question they need answered. ...Read more

Beware: I would be very cautious about any physician or other health care practitioner who proposes to treat you for a candida infection on the basis of bloodwork in the absence of a specific clinical finding of an infection. Labs that promote these tests are strongly linked to fringe medicine. My main concern is that you'll be given inappropriate medication and/or overlook a real health problem. ...Read more
