Fifth Disease (Definition)

A viral illness caused by parvovirus, also known as Erthema Infectiosum. It starts with a "slapped cheek" rash on cheeks and a flat red spotted rash, mostly on the arms and upper legs. Once the rash appears, you are no longer contagious. It can be harmful to an unborn baby, if mom has never had it. Adults can get joint swelling and pain. You only get it ...Read more

Does VCA IgG value 77.1 u/ml and EBV IgM value less than 10 shows current Epstein Barr Virus infection?

Does VCA IgG value 77.1 u/ml and EBV IgM value less than 10 shows current Epstein Barr Virus infection?

Insufficient: VCA IgG and EBV IgM sometimes are not sufficient to tell, what exactly is going on. More tests may help, for example "D early antigen (EA-D)" and "Epstein Barr nuclear antigen (EBNA)". ...Read more

I've been sick for about 3 weeks, mostly fatigue. My EBV levels are VCA IgG 153, VCA IgM <10, early AG IgG 25.7, nuclear antigen IgG 158. Any ideas?

I've been sick for about 3 weeks, mostly fatigue. My EBV levels are VCA IgG 153, VCA IgM <10, early AG IgG 25.7, nuclear antigen IgG 158. Any ideas?

No idea: First you would need to give us more details on the sickness other than just fatigue. The tests you have had are not helpful in making a diagnosis. I would recommend that you consult an internist to get a thorough workup since there are many causes for fatigue= both physiologic and psychologic. ...Read more

Torch: t IgG 162.59 iu/ml(+ve), t IgM 0.48 indax value, r IgG 83.50(+ve), r IgM 0.46, c IgG 0.14(+ve), c IgM 0.35 what does that mean & what is cure.

Common: The positive igg titers in this panel means there has been past exposure to these viruses, not necessarily that there is active infection. Past exposure to these viruses are very common and over half of the population may have positive igg titers on a torch screen. There is no cure for past exposure. What is important is if there are signs of active, acute infection. ...Read more

Do elevated gliadin antibodies IgG and IgA mean gluten sensitivity?

TTG: I woul recommend having a ttg IgA antibody and possible duodenal bx , in doing so a diagnosis of celiac disease can be made. If if asymptomatic, there may be benefit from a gluten free diet especially if small bowel inflammation noted. ...Read more

Cannot evaluate: Individual lab tests cannot be interpreted without all of the results and an understanding of the patient's medical history. I would recommend asking the doctor who ordered the test or considering a consult on HealthTap Prime, If you have the lab results and can upload them. Good luck. ...Read more

What to do if I had rubell IgG 4.83, cytomegalo virus IgG 4.64 , range negative <=0.90 , positive >=1.11,equivocal 0.91-1.10?

What to do if I had rubell IgG 4.83, cytomegalo virus IgG 4.64 , range negative <=0.90 , positive >=1.11,equivocal 0.91-1.10?

Viral exposure: Virus antibodies by IgG suggest prior exosure. If active disease the test will be positive by IgM. So previously you have had rubella and cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections. The latter can cause hepatitis. If you have liver disease you may need a DNA probe to check for viral load. Otherwise CMV is only important if you are severly immuno-suppressed like if you were to have a bone marrow transplant. ...Read more

Immunofixation, Serum FAH = Monoclonal IgG kappa immunoglobulin. Beta FAH = 10.5% Abnormal band, immunofixation to follow. I'm IgA deficient too. ??

Immunofixation, Serum FAH = Monoclonal IgG kappa immunoglobulin.   Beta FAH = 10.5% Abnormal band, immunofixation to follow. I'm IgA deficient too. ??

Possibly: If I am understaning this right you have a monoclonal protien band? The most important next steps here would be to identify the band (immunofixation) and then perfrom quantitvaive immunoglobulin levels. IF there is a monoclonal band, you may very well have reciprocal depriciation of alternative immunoglobulins and IgA deficiecny with an IgG monoclonal protein is possible. ...Read more

Is this new?: If your previous CBC's have been okay, I'd address whether you are iron deficient (which seems likely) and if so why (your physician can address this with you), follow the very mild neutropenia (not a danger yet) and since the anisocytosis is marked, ask whether the lab's pathologist might be good enough to look at the smear. ...Read more

Past hepatitis B: These results indicate that at some time in the past, you had Hepatitis B virus - but it appears now to have gone. You don't have any antigens (Ag) which would indicate ongoing viral replication. The antibody tests (Ab) appear to show that you were positive for the actual virus, as opposed to becoming positive from a vaccine. Best to follow up with your doctor about all this. You should be fine. ...Read more

Maybe nothing: C reactive protein is famously insensitive and nonspecific. Many young women have an ANA titer like yours. The diagnosis, if one is to be made, will be on history and physical exam. ...Read more
