CMV infection can have a wide range of symptoms from no symptoms to symptoms of fever and fatigue (resembling infectious mononucleosis) to severe symptoms involving brain, ...Read more

What if cytomegalovirus IgG is 11.29 in torch test.?

What if cytomegalovirus IgG is 11.29 in torch test.?

Prior exposure: Given ubiquity of cmv, elevated igg titer may merely means the host had an exposure (infection) in the past. Igm titer rises even after reactivation of cmv. Detection of the virus from the target organ would be more meaningful. ...Read more

Cytomegalovirus IgG is 9.26.  What does that mean re. How long i've had it, how contagious it is, etc.?  What are next steps on managing this?  Help!

CMV positive: This means that you have been exposed and infected sometime in the past. Most adults have had CMV in the past. As long as you are not having symptoms like sore throat, fever, lymph nodes, or fatigue it is likely months past. The igm test is what looks at recent infection (either active or in last several weeks) you are not likely contagious if only igg positive. You are immune. ...Read more

My torch panel test states Rubella IgG is 15.40 IU/lm and Cytomegalovirus IgG is 132U/ml ? Will there be complication in the pregnancy

Within range: If those numbers are within the normal range for your lab then it indicates you are immune to both rubella and CMV. The IgG indicates your body has has "seen" the viruses and mounted an immune response to them in the past. This is a good thing! ...Read more

Am 25yrs old n had a miscarriage abt2wks back.I had undergone blood test n had rubella IgG 33.20iu/ml n cytomegalovirus 121u/ml vil it b cured?

Normal labs: We are all, hopefully, immunized against rubella as children. Also, CMV exposure is common as a child or among women who work around children. Immunity is indicated by the presence of igg antibiodies. Your testing indicates that you are immune to rubella and CMV (i am assuming it was igg for cmv). This is a good thing and unrelated to the recent miscarriage. ...Read more

What does it mean if your hhv 6 IgG antibodies are high?

What does it mean if your hhv 6 IgG antibodies are high?

Nothing: The level doesn't matter. You are immune to herpes 6 from previous infection. There are rumors that the levels are higher in people with multiple sclerosis than in controls, but this is research-only and not a helpful test or 'one more thing for you to worry about.' some independent thinkers talk of this in relationship to chronic fatigue syndrome; i doubt a strong link here. ...Read more
