Hep A Antibody Total Reflex Igm
Is my Hepatitis results okay I am confused ? All Hep panel test a,b,c Igg,igm,core,surface nonreactive,HepBsurface antibody(i) 3.05 nonrea ?
Had HSV DNA PCR test with CSF? Negative. Also had HSV 1/2 antibody (IgM), IFA with reflex to Titer, CSF. Negative. Can I still have HSV 1 or 2?
No HSV in CNS: With these tests, you're obviously under a doctor's care, maybe including an infectious diseases specialist or neurologist. They can answer these questions best. But these results effectively rule out HSV infection of your central nervous system. Something else is causing the problem. That said, the HSV IgM test is notoriously unreliable. You probably also had an IgG test, probably negative. ...Read more
Epidemiology of EBV: Studies show that the Epstein Barr Virus is ubiquitous in all human populations. Children acquire the disease and seroconvert in the first few years of life. Studies also show that EBV titers are high in young children and then in persons above 50 years old. IGM antibodies are usually seen in early infection IGG antibodies immunity or memory response. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK47424/ ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Recent bloodwork showed an IgM level less than 5 mg/dl. Other antibodies are normal. I do not have a spleen. Could this be the reason?
Unlikely: I find your situation interesting - both are immunologic issues. But, not having a spleen would not drop your igm levels. An isolated deficiency of igm (absence of igm) is rare. Usually it is not a problem. It might be related to your gastrointestinal issues. ...Read more
I'd dengue a month back. During hectic travel, had same symptoms again. Today IgM test antibodies detected. Is it confirm I have dengue again ?
No: Anti-dengue igm can stay around for as long as a year. The best way to make the diagnosis of a second attack is by symptoms and signs. It is often quite severe, since it's by a second variant of dengue and you're very immune to the first, so your immune system may make you seriously ill. You'll know in a short time. Hoping this is not dengue again, or that you'll get good supporting treatment. ...Read more
Does a Hepatitis A Total Antibody test look for IgM antibodies or IgG antibodies? Or does it look for both? Does it differentiate between the two on the results?
Remote infection: Igm is the first class of antibody made to a microbe and after several months the immune system starts to make igg class of antibodies and then the immune system stops making igm. If all that is found is igg to a particular microbe it means that you were infected over about 6 months to many years previously. ...Read more
