Why would my epstein barr virus continue to be high. Dont test positive for mono, it has been pn high side for over a year? Is this worrisome
EBV: If you mean your antibody titers are high this is not uncommon and may stay that way for lifetime. It also depends upon which component of the EBV the antibodies are forming to, and also whether these are IgG or IgM antibodies. These tests are not easy to interpret and in the absent of symptoms would not worry about them. ...Read more
The epstein–barr virus (ebv) is a virus in the herpesvirus family and is one of the most common viruses in humans. Ebv is best known as the cause of infectious mononucleosis, and infection with ebv occurs by the oral transfer of saliva and/or genital secretions, hence the moniker "the kissing disease". In the us, about 90 to 95 percent of all adults have ...Read more
Im wondering if you can tell me what the ratio is for normal gluten levels on a blood test. This is mine glidan/gluten IgA ab 36 h2?
Testing for gluten: Sensitivity can be tricky, and should be done by a physician with the context of a good clinical history of diet and symptoms. The best way to definitively identify gluten sensitivity is to have a trial of exposure to gluten followed by endoscopy and biopsy of the small bowel. If there is good exposure to gluten and the small bowel is normal, then it is unlikely to be gluten sensitivity. ...Read more
Had hpylori blood test showed +IGA AB, now hpyloriantigen stool test came back -. is this definitive that there is no hpylori bacteria present?
I was exposed to someone with Epstein Barr virus, what should I do? I already have post viral syndrome, I can't get real sick again. Please help!
Rest easy: 90+ percent of us have been exposed already to EBV (Epstein Barr Virus) and have immunity to it. Given your age, I don't think you need be concerned. It's highly likely that you encountered this virus in your younger years (think teens) and your immune system dealt with it. I always recommend a good nights sleep, proper nutrition, reducing stress and avoiding environmental poisons (smoke). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Positive test to epstein barr 3 yrs go. Had 'post viral syndrome' since. Symptoms: ongoing flu and malaise. Elevated rf, liver enzymes. What can I do?
See specialists...: A rheumatologist and an infectious disease specialist can evaluate to see if more can be done to decrease symptoms. A hepatologist (liver specialist) can help if there is ongoing liver damage. An immunologist (specialist in immune system disorders) may have some helpful ideas also. ...Read more
Past EBV infection: The presence of igg to the ebv capsule means that your body was exposed at some time in the past to ebv and made antibodies against it. It is at its highest level 2-3 months after the initial infection, and it will always be present. An elevated igm level would be consistent with current/recent infection. ...Read more
What does a high EBV viral nuclear capsid antibody, a high EBV viral capsid antibody IgG and a high IgM EBV viral capsid antibody mean, what's it mean?
Likely immunity,,: You've got antibodies to the ebv which likely means you were infected at some time in your life and you recovered and now your body has circulating antibodies to it. An igg antibody in particular indicates long term resistance. This virus usually causes asymptomatic infection so you probably fought it off and weren't aware of it. Best of luck. ...Read more
