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.

Acute infection: A rise in IgM antibody against a particular antigen gen indicates either an acute infection or reinfection. One can consider more reliable testing for HSV than antibody testing, e.g. PCR or culture, in light of a chronic history for a better long term follow up and disease management. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
