My son had blood work and the one test mycoplasma pneumonia IgG ab was 2025 normal is 0-99 what could this mean?
Yes but........: It is difficult to say when the incubation period started. Mycoplasma is commonly diagnosed with a blood test. The problem with the blood test called igm is that the test has too many false positive (i.e. Positive test when the disease is not present or when it has resolved), a new test called pcr is really good but most clinics do not offer it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is there any possibility suffer from ild or bo after infection of mycoplasma pneumonia? And what exam may be ordered for the differential diagnosis?
Not likely: Bacterial infections such as you describe do not usually result in interstitial lung diseases. If you had some fairly abnormal chest xray or ct scan with the infection, ct may be ordered in follow-up to evaluate for resolution of the infection or persistent interstitial abnormality. If abnormalities on imaging remain, you may need additional testing, but as i said, this would be pretty unlikely. ...Read more
If tested positive for unreaplasma/mycoplasma after treatment could I be reinfected by someone w/o this infection.. Will I always have this infection ?
Normal bacteria: These are normal bacteria in the genital tract; at any time, half of all sexually active people have them. They are shared sexually, but rarely cause symptoms or disease. No treatment is needed for them. it is normal for them to reappear after treatment. You do not have "an infecion"; you are simply carrying normal bacteria. Maybe not "always" there, but probably a lot of the time. No worries! ...Read more
Harmless, not an STD: Mycoplasma hominis is a normal bacteria in the genital tract. It can be shared among sex partners, but causes no disease and is not considered an STD. Whatever symptoms you have, M. hominis is not the cause and I cannot imagine a good reason why you might have been tested for it. Discuss with your doctor, or see a genitourinary medicine specialst, e.g. maybe visit your local GUM clinic. Good luck! ...Read more

Diagnosed mycoplasma genitalia.sore joints, and chronic fatigue. What is the course of treatment first line?
I got elevated TSH after mycoplasma pneunomia. The values fluctuate up and down (4-7) anti-TPO negative. Why?
Mild abnormality: A TSH of between 4 and 7 means that your thyroid function may be slightly low. You may not have any symptoms related to this. Despite the negative tpo antibody, the most common cause is still autoimmune thyroid disease. You should continue to have your level checked. If the TSH goes above 12, it likely will be time to start thyroid hormone. With symptoms, one would start treatment earlier. ...Read more
