Igg Synthesis Rate Index Csf
Igg synthesis (csf +serum) 20.1, IgG index 1.86, albumin CSF 11.8, IgG CSF 6.4, IgG 1080, albumin 3.7, protein 34 and glucose 54 what do they mean?
Lab Values: These are results from CSF (cerebral spinal fluid) tests that identify values that tell your physician whether you have normal or abnormal levels of Immune Globulin (igg), whether the ratio compared to your blood is correct; adequate protein (albumin) and sugar in the csf. All of these help to diagnose what type of problem may be occurring in your body and nervous system especially. ...Read more
Had spinal tap. O bands were found in CSF and not blood sample. IgG Index, CSF was 1.20. Does this tell how many bands? Says MS or another disease?
LP Done. Monocytes 1%, Serum IgG 587/mg/DL, Albumin 4100ml, IGG Index 1.1mg, WBC 23/mm3, RBC 1/mm3, CSF IGG 3.6 mg/DL, Lymphocytoid 97%, protein, neutrophils, glucose, CSF albumin all norm. Any ideas?
Brisk lower-leg reflexes. Extreme fatigue. Bouts of vertigo and vision loss/blurriness. Symptoms last 3-14 days and occur every 3-6 months. CSF IgG index elevated. Ketones in urine. Neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio elevated. Could these all be related?
Not of much concern: Why did you have an lp? Slightly low igg is not of much importance by itself. It would be prudent to the discus all of the results with your doctor as the context is important in interpreting lab results. ...Read more
Is there CSF IgG subclass deficiency? I have lowish IgG and IgG subclass deficiencies (1, 3, 4) and CSF IgG of 685.
2.8 oligoclonal bands IgG in CSF. Zero serum bands in CSF. Why does Mayo Clinic standards require 4 oligoclonal IGg CSF for MS diagnosis?
Other causes: Oligoclonal bands can be present in some other conditions such as infections and inflammation of the central nervous system. Increasing the threshold for diagnosing MS by requiring at least 4 oligoclonal bands, allows to exclude these other causes and diagnose MS with greater certainty. ...Read more
Lumbar puncture results: Multiple IgG oligoclonal bands detected in CSF and serum, most bands unique to CSF. IgG value 9.43, range 6 - 15 Is this MS?
Consistent: But diagnosis of MS should be based on history, physical exam, results of MRI films, and spinal fluid is useful in ambiguous cases. However, elevation of oligoclonal bands can be seen in several disorders and NOT definitive on its own. Have your doctor now put the whole picture in place. Most likely MS, but other possibilities exist. ...Read more
CSF IgG is 2.6, CSF Albumin is 28, CFS IgG/Albumin Ratio is 9%. Could this indicate MS or Lyme Disease if clinically the symptoms fit?
The IGG Index requires a comparison to the IGG in blood and CSF. It is a nonspecific test for inflammatory diseases like those you referred to. What were the blood levels?
A better test for MS is CSF oligoclonal bands. Do you have that? Along with an MRI result?
For Lyme disease you would want a CSF ELISA or Western blot for Lyme proteins.
Hope that helps. ...Read more
Have IgG and IgM for CMV but PCR not detected. Pos rmsf IgM neg igg. Bands in CSF mri/white matter foci. Many symptoms possible ms. No real answers?
Uncertainty: I am unclear as to what is really going on. Appears that you have immune activity in the central nervous system. You have some cross-reactivity in the serum for CMV and rickettsial infection. Don't think that need to add another disease to the picture. Best to discuss with your doctor or get a second opinion from another specialist. ...Read more
Adnorm. Blood & cfs results: high: CSF protein-47, high cfs albumin-30.9; low total protein-5.7, low gamma globulin-.5, low IgG quantitative -621 worry?
CSF: Some experts consider CSF protein levels to be normal if the value is equal to or below your age in years. I don't think in your case there is a reason to worry. Other CSF components are important as well. Check with your physician to see if there is any reasons to worry. Hope you feel well soon. ...Read more
What does a positive csf-P66 AB, iGg only represent, I have fatigue muscle pain and weakness trigeminal neuralgia t 2 brain fog migraine uveitis?
Csf: IgM antibodies are the first antibodies to be produced in the body in response to an infection, and is produced in great quantity. IgM antibodies are large, up to six times larger than the IgG antibodies. IgM antibodies, when present in high numbers, represent a new active infection or an existing infection that has become reactivated. Over time, the number of IgM antibodies will decline as the ac ...Read more
What does a high type specific HSV-1 IgG number mean? My IgG number is 62.2 (Reference range is 0.00 - 0.90 index)
HSV 1 infection: Whether you realize it or not you are infected with HSV 1- the cold sore virus. It is actually very common. This virus "hides" in a nerve root and will come out at times of 'stress'-- such as when sick with another illness. That's why we call them 'cold sores' or 'fever blisters'. Your treatment would depend on how much trouble the virus is giving you. Your primary MD should be able to help. ...Read more
HSV 1 IgG 28.10 Reference range: 0.00 to 0.90 HSV 2 IgG <0.91Reference range: 0.00 to 0.90Unit: index (note)Negative <0.91 I don't understand?
Herpes simplex: This generally refers to the infection that occurs when you are exposed to the virus for the first time. This is indicated by the presence of igm antibodies in the absence of igg antibodies. You can also have acute infection with recurrence, but then you would also have igg antibodies present as well as igm. You cannot reliably separate types 1 & 2 using antibody testing. ...Read more
Herpes: Your test results indicate that you were exposed to Herpes virus at some point in your life, not sure when. The low IgM might suggest that it's not recent exposure, but IgM in this virus is not very accurate or useful. Your test did not specify whether your exposure came from type 1 or type 2 or both. If you have an outbreak ask your doctor for treatment medication. ...Read more
What does it mean when I have an index value of 20.9 for a herpes i, ii, and IgG test? Lab results
Old infection: I do not know the reference value of the lab that did the test but I assume this is higher than normal and is interpreted as reactive. It means at one point in your life, you have been exposed to both varieties of hepres -i generally responsible for 'cold sores' and ii, generally responsible for genital lesions. However with diverse sexual practicess, they are becoming more interchangeable. ...Read more
Test results that I don’t understand? Number look high? What do they mean hsv 1 igg type spec 14.70 index hsv 2 igg type spec 7.05 index
Pos HSV1, prob HSV2: These results indicate that the person tested for sure has HSV1 and probably has HSV2 as well. However, it depends on the exact HSV blood test that was done (there are several tests on the market). If the cut-off number is 1.1, as for the most commonly used test (HerpeSelect), then the result for sure is positive for both viruses. ...Read more
I want to know what these test results mean? Hsv 2 Igg type spec<0.91 index Hsv 1 Igg type spec <0.91 index Do I have it or not
No: You either have a very early acute infection, or no exposure. ...Read more
What does this mean from my labs? HSV 2 IgG, Type Spec H Final 19.30 index 0.00-0.90 Negative<0.91 Equivocal 0.91-1.09 Positive > 1.09 Note: Ne
Genital herpes: Your test results show you are infected with HSV2. That means you have genital herpes, even if you haven't had any obvious outbreaks of genital blisters, sores, etc. See your doctor and discuss antiviral treatment (e.g. valacyclovir) to help prevent transmitting it to partners. You need to always inform sex partners you have it, and use condoms consistently to also reduce chance of infecting them. ...Read more

OK: Ask your Dr why he's not alarmed. He'll tell you. ...Read more
Do I have HSV 1 and 2? Hsv1 igg 0.00 - 0.90 index 25.40 (mine) hsv2 IgG type spec 0.00 - 0.90 index <0.91 (mine) I'm confused!
Ebv IgG extremely high positive, low positive rhumetoid, sed rate. I have also significantly high alt. What could it be? I'm referred to rhumetology
Anything: Ebv igg just means that you have been exposed to mono in the past. It doesn't mean anything recent- that's igm. With positive rheumatoid factor and sed rate, the question is whether or not you have rheumatoid arthritis. I'm not sure how the alt fits in- that is showing liver inflammation which would be unrelated. ...Read more
What does this mean? SSB (La)IGG Positive 85 SSA (Ro)AB IGG Neg. ANA NEG. SED RATE Neg. CRP Neg. RF NEG.
Depends: All lab 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 antibodies to SSA suggest auto-immune disorder, however, if that is the only abnormal test and you do not have any symptoms, I would leave it alone and re-evaluate in six months. ...Read more
For blood test for HSV 1/11 IgG 0.0-0.8 index, and a result of 46.4 (a). What does the high number 46.4 and the a mean? Please help.
The a is probably just a marker used at the specific lab. The titer count is meaningless. This test is designed to be positive or negative. Being positive means you have been infected with herpes simplex now called herpes type one. 75% of americans have this infection.
The igg antibody also represents the fact that this infection is an old infection and not in any way new or recent. ...Read more
