Sort of: The body has different antibodies in response to any infection. The IgM antibodies usually rise during an active infection and are a sign that the body is fighting something. The igg antibodies are indicators of long term immunity and those remain elevated for the rest of your life. ...Read more
If you treat a cytomegalovirus infection for example taking oral valgacyclovir, will the CMV antibody count lower?
CMV: You can order separate IgG and IgM for CMV. I have to wonder if the lab you use does the IgG first and if negative runs the IgM as a positive IgG would usually mean past exposure. However, I would call the ordering physicians/CNMs office and confirm if they ordered both IgG and IgM. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cmv antibody IgG test result-38, test said "current vs. prior exposure unclear" im 40 yrs., body aches for 3 mos., should i request IgM test too?
Sorry - wrong track: I'm concerned we are on the 'wrong track' here. CMV is not really a major problem for a 'normal' patient. I think your lab testing and evaluation should concentrate on different possibilities. Have you had muscle enzyme testing? Thyroid? Lyme? Rheumatological tests? Evaluation of medications? Almost everyone has been exposed to CMV -so it's no wonder your IgG is positive. IgM would have no value. ...Read more
8 weeks pregnant, CMV test shows positive and high IgG antibodies and negative igm, is it ok for pregnancy?
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

I have been diagnosed with cytomegalovirus IGg Antibody 9.59 (Au/ml). What is the treatment and consequences?
I had CMV infection during childhood.igt swollen glands nd fever 3 to 4 times.now I have antibody to cmv.will I get the infection again?
Depends: Most have this as a benign viral illness in childhood. They develop antibodies to it and if normal, never need to worry about it. If you get it for the FIRST time while pregnant, it can pass to the fetus and cause a variety of problems from deafness to brain damage. It is from a family of viruses that hibernate in your body and can make you sick later if you are ever immune suppressed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
For how long is CMV contagious? I have CMV IgM 86.50 IgG 60.5 but i no longer have fever. Also, can it erupt again in the future?
As long as virus ..: Good morning, CMV can be spread as long as the virus is present in the body fluids or body surface, the presence being detected by pcr test. Igm informs recent exposure; igg shows past exposure. Presence of rash indirectly suggests an active clinical evidence. Presence of an igg and absence of igm antibodies suggests a non contagious state. ...Read more
