Negative: If a patient's lab test result is <0.91, and the lab says the reference range for NEGATIVE is <0.91, then the test result is NEGATIVE. Of course, numbers are just numbers, so the doctor needs to see the numbers in the context of the whole patient in order to make sensible and accurate conclusions from the numbers. ...Read more

If it is positive on the screening test it is then sent for the more sensitive western blot test. If the igm test is positive it could represent a recent exposure to lyme disease if the igg is positive it indicates a more distant orast exposure. If the igm is positive you should be eval. ...Read more

I had a pt with recurrent sinus infection and diagnosed with common variable immune deficiency and he received treatment from an allergiest and did great! good luck ...Read more
