Previous Negative Toxoplasma Ig G Antibody
Is my toxoplasma IgG antibodies result (0.10 negative), the reason I had an early miscarriage and a missed miscarriage this year? My obgyn says yes.
No.: Your antibodies are negative - normal and cannot explain your adverse pregnancy outcomes. I am sorry for your losses and would recommend you take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily from now on to prevent recurrent miscarriages. Seek a second opinion by another obstetrician/gynecologist, if you like and best of luck! ...Read more
You've met it: When one meets the toxoplasmosis organism (mild flu-like or no illness), IgM usually appears and may stay around for as long as 18 months. Igg will also appear and usually stay for life, suggesting you overcame the creatures. However, they may still be alive and dormant, to re-emerge should you become immunocompromised. ...Read more
If I am on antibiotic and an acne gel, can that affect or cause false results on a toxoplasma IgG test or a Lyme IgG test?
No, meds won't do it: Ninety percent of us have been exposed to Toxoplasma, so it's no surprise your IgG test for that is positive. No worries there. With Lyme IgGs it depends on 'what bands' may or may not be positive. You would need at least 5 bands on the IgG test to be considered a positive, but then that needs to be interpreted in the right clinical context. Ur meds aren't at fault. Good to check back with ur doc. ...Read more
Consult: an OB/GYN. The IgG itself is a good thing and will protect the baby. The IgG level will stay high after treating the infection (this is the concept of "immunization") and does not signify ongoing infection. I believe that if immunity is established, and if the active infectious process has been treated, then the risk to the fetus is low. ...Read more

My rubella IgG results are 88.31 what does that mean?
My toxoplasma IgG 91.50 what does mean?
Cytomegalovirus IgG is 16.08 what does mean?
Probably: Toxoplasmosis is not a rare disease. Many people have had it, had mild or inapparent symptoms & have recovered leaving them with protective immunity - an elevated specific igg antibody against toxoplasma gondii. If planning pregnancy you need to know if the infection was recent. This is done with an IgM and sometimes an igg avidity test. Speak to your ob/gyn or fertility specialist. ...Read more
