If my dr said he was testing me for both types of herpes, and both test results came back separate, what kind of test was this? Type specific or not?
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, you were probably tested for antibodies to Herpes 1 and 2. What were the results? Antibody tests can distinguish between these two types. What else were you tested for?

What is the difference between testing at 3 months and 6 months for HIV? Will 116 days give me an accurate result? Or should I wait 6 months?
HIV: There is a small percentage of infected individuals who have a delay in forming measurable levels of antibody to this virus. You should probably be tested at 3 and 6 months to be certain. Or in the alternative a PCR for HIV RNA at 3 months should be definitive. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi I got results back from testing and was surprised to find something wasn't in range. With my A1c at 6.2 and globulin at 3.7. What do you advise?
Normal ranges: These tests are close to the normal range cut-offs, so since by definition a small percentage of normal people will still have test values outside the 'normal' range, you may have nothing to worry about. Typically borderline abnormal tests lead to follow-up testing to verify, and then to more serious investigation for disease. If you feel well, repeat testing in a few months may be appropriate. ...Read more

How long after a possible HIV exposure should I do at home testing. (I want the results to be reliable.)?
Not the best test: The home self test for HIV takes up to 3 months to give reliable results, the longest of all HIV tests. It is never the best test to check for infection after a particular exposure. Better to go to a doctor or clinic and have an HIV antigen/antibody test ("4th generation" or "duo" test), which is reliable after only 4 weeks. You also need testing for STDs, for which you are at much higher risk. ...Read more
What do you suggest if my test results and chart are missing, now the lab which would've done my testing has no record of me at all!?
Ordering provider: You need to call the provider that ordered the tests. They should be able to give you your results. Perhaps your tests were sent to a different laboratory. Also, remember that labs will not provide results over the phone since they have no way of checking to ensure that the person calling was the person tested. It is done to protect patient confidentiality. ...Read more
