Hi....i got report that my rubella IgG @125.00...i am worried is this is a sign of rubella virus to my baby?
What do you advise if I'm married 3 years ago but I have no pregnency bcoz I have rubella IgG 4.83, cytomegalo virus IgG 4.64?
Need to know IgM:
A + CMV IgG antibody means past infection with CMV and that you now have antibodies to the virus. A negative CMV IgM antibody titer indicates you do not have an active CMV infection. At this point if you should get pregnant, you are at minimal risk for having a child born with congenital CMV infection. Follow CMV IgM titer for reactivation.
+ IgG for Rbuella = immune. No risk of reactivation ...Read more
Nothing really: The rubella virus doesn't really attack anything. It focuses only on making more of itself. It starts in the nose usually and then go to the blood. The symptoms of rubella are from our body attacking the virus to get rid of it and in the process effecting cells that are infected. Rubella is a big deal in pregnancy because it can cross the placenta and get into the baby. ...Read more

Yes: This was a common viral illness of childhood many years ago before vaccines were available. It was a relatively mild illness for kids, but produces fetal death or devastating birth defects when women get it during pregnancy.As more of the population ignores the benefit of vaccines, we will eventually see outbreaks. International travel brings in asymptomatic carriers who then infect susceptible ppl. ...Read more
Supportive care: There are no antivirals that will help when a child is infected with the rubella virus. As an illness, it is not very intense and usually peaks and fades like a flu. Its greatest risk is to a fetus, who if infected can abort or become deaf, blind or have other severe organ damage. The vaccine is likely to provide lifelong immunity, but ob's often check to be sure a womans antibody level is adequate. ...Read more
Yes: Protection from the first dose is expected in about 85% of the population, this rises to in excess of 95% after a second dose given at least a month later. The current routine in the US includes doses at a year and 4-5 yrs which integrates vaccinations with day care/school entry. Recent measles outbreaks in the US were noted from imported cases in mostly unvaccinated but some once vaccinated kids ...Read more

I am affected by the rubella virus disease. Is there any treatment for it and if so, where can I get it?
Confusing question: You say affected by Rubella, if you mean you had it and have residual problems, any treatment would focus on the problem. For most, the residual effects are permanent.

I would like help. Affected by rubella virus disease. Is there any treatment for it. If so say where the treatment is?
?? too vague: Affected by rubella virus??? No details. Rubella is harshest on the unborn, producing permanent injury to the eyes (vision), organs (poor function), nervous system (small brain with delay and impaired performance). The affect on the older kid is relatively minor. Injury to the nervous system tends to be permanent and treatment supportive. ...Read more
Cloaked RNA virus: Rubella is a RNA virus that is easily transmitted easily in nasal & throat secretions. As many as half of those infected have no symptoms & for those that do in childhood it is rather mild. A facial rash that spreads in a day, enlarged lymph nodes, fever& rarely other complications. If infected during pregnancy, the baby may abort, develop anomalies or be deaf, mute & blind. ...Read more
Injures a fetus: Rubella virus is a rather mild illness when experienced in middle childhood & before a vaccine was available parents often had block parties to expose kids & get it over with. Unfortunately it is not that mild on a developing fetus. Moms with 1st time rubella in pregnancy can miscarry, or the fetus be born deaf & blind. It can have a specific heart defect and or other organ damage. ...Read more
Wait it out: There are many instances where the standard screening test for rubella immunity is negative when functional immunity may still be adequate. Your OB will likely plan to give you the vaccine after you deliver to boost any immunity you have. For now, avoid people you know won't vaccinate their kids, & crowded areas or airports. Good luck. ...Read more
