I have CBC test where monocytes are high, liver enzymes ALT high; also EBV IgG positive, CMV IgG positive CMV IgM normal.. Hiv negative at 32 weeks.

I have CBC test where monocytes are high, liver enzymes ALT high; also EBV IgG positive, CMV IgG positive CMV IgM normal.. Hiv negative at 32 weeks.

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, it would help to have the actual values of the results. The one item of interest is high ALT. If you drink alcohol, stop entirely for three months and redo the test. Other results are okay. ...Read more

CMV: Is cytomegalovirus and is similar to mono. It is causing the positive blood tests and the elevated liver enzymes. It is very common. You will recover.

What does it mean when your blood test showed candida antibody IgA 1.5. Igm 1.2. Igg 1.9. All high?

What does it mean when your blood test showed candida antibody IgA 1.5. Igm 1.2. Igg 1.9. All high?

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

Do you rule out aps if anticardiolipin antibody and beta 2 glycoprotein (both IgG and igm) are often elevated but in borderline and weakly positive range?

See below: There are certain criteria that must be met in order for one to have aps. One of which is that one must have some type of thrombotic event. Antibodies alone do not make the diagnosis. Without knowing full details regarding your case, it is difficult to say whether you do or not. ...Read more

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 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. Some tests will examine igm to determine if the infection is new (recent), some tests look at igg to see if there is evidence of an older infection or exposure. The physician selects the appropriate test depending upon the question they need answered. ...Read more

What does it mean if IGG and IGM toxosoplasma are positive? Previously treated in 2008. At present pregnant and values are Igm 1.54 and Igg 90.

Active infection: IgG is a marker for a previous infection, so that would likely be positive after you had the toxo in 2008. IgM means that there is possibly an active infection within the last 12 months. Specimen should be sent to reference lab for confirmation of this IgM positive to make sure not a false positive. ...Read more

Blood test show thyroglobulin antibodies is high (low positive). but TSH, Free T4, and tpo is normal. should i be concerned ?

Thyroid disorders: It sounds like your thyroid is functioning well right now, but the high antibody level indicates possible future autoimmune thyroiditis in the future. I'm not sure why you had this full work up. If you are symptomatic of thyroid disease, you might want to see an endocrinologist even with your normal results. If you do not have symptoms, your doctor may want to monitor your TSH periodically. ...Read more

What might IgA deficient, low pneumococcal antibodies, and a postive ANA by symptomatic of?

Maybe none: We need a lot more information. The positive ANA may not indicate anything. Just because there is a positive ANA does not mean you have lupus. The low IgA and low pneumococcal antibodies may not cause any symptoms. Your evaluation should include pneumococcal antigen stimulation to see if you are responsive. You need further evaluation. ...Read more
