A viral infection of children caused by the paramyxovirus virus. The salivary glands (especially the parotid glands behind the ears) swell. The paramyxovirus virus is spread by direct contact with an infected person's sneeze or cough. With nearly universal immunization in childhood, there are few cases ...Read more

I have a positive gliadin IgG for celiac disease. What does this mean?

I have a positive gliadin IgG for celiac disease. What does this mean?

You may have celiac: The usual test for celiac disease is the detection of IgA against gliadin. Some people don't make very much or any IgA (about 1 in 400 have this finding). In the absence of IgA persons with celiac disease make igg antibodies against gliadin. The diagnosis of celiac disease is generally made through endoscopy by the appearance of the small intestine with confirmation on biopsy. ...Read more

What does it mean to have a positive IgM but a negative IgG for mycoplasm?

What does it mean to have a positive IgM but a negative IgG for mycoplasm?

Early vs late: Igm is the immunoglobulin noted for coming out early in response to any illness, it fades over time while igg come out a bit later and stays up longer. If you have a positive IgM it indicates a early response, while igg would probably show up in a few months at which point the IgM would have declined. ...Read more

Would a positive igg for Candida Albicans mean systemic infection or that it is an infection somewhere in your body? I have +stool fungal culture.

Would a positive igg for Candida Albicans mean systemic infection or that it is an infection somewhere in your body? I have +stool fungal culture.

Not necessarily: I find these studies to be of little value. They are often promoted by alternative health vendors as having value for dozens of chronic conditions. People usually have candida albicans to the point it makes up 5% of the dry weight of stool. Igg is often positive for hundreds of factors for which no problems are present, with the number increasing with age. This includes candida. ...Read more

I have positive deamidated giladin igG. What does this mean?

What disease?: You need to provide the actual value and the reason why the test was obtained for anyone to answer your question. A low titer gliadin IgG often means nothing especially in the absence of any disease. If you are looking for gluten intolerance, IgA tTG would be a more sensitive test. ...Read more

I had a positive non-typed culture that came back positive, and symptoms. But a negative non typed IGG test. What should I believe?

I had a positive non-typed culture that came back positive, and symptoms. But a negative non typed IGG test. What should I believe?

Herpes?: Many infections behave this way, but I assume you're talking about herpes. Oral or genital? Positive HSV culture is rarely false, but it takes a few weeks for blood (IgG) test to turn positive, so probably a new infection. Insist the lab test the culture for virus type, if they haven't discarded it. Or repeat IgG test in a few weeks; probably it will be positive for HSV1 or HSV2. Good luck. ...Read more

Both husband and I ttested positive for herpes 1 IgG and herpes 2 indeterminate, igg. What does that mean? Who is the carrier? How do u get herpes

Both husband and I ttested positive for herpes 1 IgG and herpes 2 indeterminate, igg. What does that mean? Who is the carrier? How do u get herpes

Herpes: Here is the best we can do today. If the igg is indeterminate then your physician must order the herpes western blot test. Knowing if you have hsv two if vital.

Herpes is two separate viruses. Type one, the 'oral' herpes or 'simplex' herpes is found in 75% of americans and is usually transmitted to one during childhood.

Herpes type two or hsv is thought to be the std version. Skin to skin. ...Read more

Last month I have igm (toxo) weakly positive (>0.6), this month IgM positive but IgG depreciate. What does it mean?

Last month I have igm (toxo) weakly positive (>0.6), this month IgM positive but IgG depreciate. What does it mean?

Phases of infection: Igm is the antibody that is 1st to rev up in early phases of infection. Then as the body begins to fight infection it produces more igg antibodies. The body keeps igg around as a "memory" so it can respond more quickly and vigorously if it sees that infection again. The duration and efficacy of the memory is variable. This is also how vaccinations work. ...Read more

My 3yrs baby dengu NS1or IGg negative but IGm show wekly positive and plates 169000 what mean this reports?

My 3yrs baby dengu NS1or IGg negative but IGm show wekly positive and plates 169000 what mean this reports?

Platelet count is: Normal. This is a good sign. Negative NS1 usually means that whatever your baby's illness is, Dengue is not likely. Negative IgG means your baby hasn't had Dengue before. A weakly (+) IgM could be early Dengue, but it could be something else. The most important thing is that your baby gets proper supportive care. Example: if he's not drinking, he may need replacement fluids. Namaste. ...Read more

I have tested positive for IgG h.Pylori with a reading of 1.47. What does this mean and what should I do now?

I have tested positive for IgG h.Pylori with a reading of 1.47. What does this mean and what should I do now?

H. pylori: The test means you have produced an immune reaction to h.Pylori. Whether you have it now is uncertain, as the test can remain positive for a long time. A stool antigen test for H. pylori may show if you currently have it. Treatment of H. pylori is by a so-called 'triple therapy.' in the absence of relevant symptoms, though, it may not be necessary to do. See your doctor for clarification. ...Read more

I got a Lyme disease test done.& IgG 66 came positive out of the other 10 bands. What does this mean? Do I have Lyme or had it? Should I worry? Thanks

I got a Lyme disease test done.& IgG 66 came positive out of the other 10 bands. What does this mean? Do I have Lyme or had it? Should I worry? Thanks

Not enough info: This test is not evidence of lyme but also not proof you don't have it! Ultimately lyme is a clinical diagnosis. 20-30% of those who have it never have a positive western blot. It's really important that the test include the 31 & 34 bands & most labs don't check it- igenex is the best lab for a thorough test. See a doc who uses igenex as that is someone able to make a proper diagnosis. See comment:. ...Read more

What can be the reason of having a positive hsv-2 test with 2.07 IgG and the next week the IgG levels are in 1.80?

Antibody Testing: The number that comes with an antibody test is not of any concern. The results are either positive or not. Both of these tests tell you that you have been exposed to and have hsv 2. ...Read more

What does it mean if IGG and IGM toxosoplasma are positive? Previously treated in 2008. At present pregnant and values are Igm 1.54 and Igg 90.

Active infection: IgG is a marker for a previous infection, so that would likely be positive after you had the toxo in 2008. IgM means that there is possibly an active infection within the last 12 months. Specimen should be sent to reference lab for confirmation of this IgM positive to make sure not a false positive. ...Read more

Is it possible to have MS and hypogammaglubamemia? I have a positive MRI for MS lesion, neg. Bands. I know typically MS has elevated IgG mine was 627

Lab data: Numbers on lab tests have little meaning without full consideration of the clinical parameters. Without being able to examine you, have your medical records available and a full history it is impossible to answer your question specifically. It is possible you have ms and another condition simultaneously, or other combinations. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Good luck. ...Read more

I recently had an out break of some kind. My HSV IgG 1 and 2 both. 90 came back negative but my HSV IgM came back positive 1.09. What does this mean?
