See below: 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, your lab data indicates that you had EBV infection, like most adults have had. If you have no symptoms, there is nothing to be concerned about. ...Read more
How long could the IgG in Lyme disease stay positive?Could it stay positive more than 5-10 years? I know the IgM ab convert to IgG just want an answer
Yes,positive 20+ yrs: Research suggests igg antibodies can persist at least 20 years after infection. While igm antibodies appear first, unlike other infections they often persist ; are a good indicator of persistent infection. One may have chronic lyme with or without persistence of igg antibodies. Chronic lyme is difficult to fully eradicate ; no current test proves that it is no longer present in your body! ...Read more
Lyme IgG/IgM Ab result is <0.91."Reference interval:ISR 0.00-0.90,reference interval for neg is<0.91." Is test tesult neg with above 2 refer, interval
Neg;might have Lyme: This is a negative result but does not mean you don't have Lyme. The type of test you had will be negative in at least half of those who have Lyme. I advise you get a Western Blot from IgeneX but even that may be negative in 20% of those with Lyme. See http://www.betterhealthguy.com/lyme/testing for more info. ...Read more

Whats the meaning of Herpes Type 1 IgG- Serum Positive, Herpes Type 2 IgG - Serum Negative and Herpes 1+2 IgM Ab Serum Negative? Thats my results
HSV1, no HSV2: The results mean you are carrying herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV1), usually from oral infection in childhood, so you probably have had it for years. But if you have had symptoms that suggest genital herpes, it could be a genital infection. You do not have HSV2, the usual cause of genital herpes. I takes up to 12 weeks for positive results, so these results do not exclude recent infection. ...Read more

Negative: If a patient's lab test result is <0.91, and the lab says the reference range for NEGATIVE is <0.91, then the test result is NEGATIVE. Of course, numbers are just numbers, so the doctor needs to see the numbers in the context of the whole patient in order to make sensible and accurate conclusions from the numbers. ...Read more
