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

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.

I takes up to 12 weeks for positive results, so these results do not exclude recent infection. ...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
My Lyme igg/igm ab test came back at .98. The test range is 0-.90. My doctor says this is negative, although it says high on the test. Is she right?
Merits further tests: With an uncertain test result, a western blot test is appropriate, one that tests for antibodies to several lyme spiroochete body parts, both for igm and igg. Igenex labs in palo alto ca has a very precise western blot test and you can get a blood draw kit with instructions for free (at least your doc can order it) also suggest a cd57 natural killer cell test available through labcorp (only). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
