Hello from JA
This indicates exposure to parvovirus and to cytomeglovirus, fairly common.
No exposure to herpes.

Why did you have these tests?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I'm dealing with a bad headache problem (NDPH) and the neurologist wanted to make sure that I do not have an infection or virus.
Can you repost the herpes 6 result, the first value, I think there is a descrepancy, I think the reference range should read less than 1:10 correct?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Herpesvirus 6 AB IGG, IFA 1:320 High
Herpesvirus 6 AB IGM, IFA <1:20
Interpretation Past Infection

Ref range: IgG <1:10
IgM or = 1.1 states Antibody Detected. Mine is 1.4. High
Both igg and igm are positive on the cytomeglovirus, which could indicate an active or reactivated infection.
Or just looking at the tires it could be an infection that you have gotten over recently.

The parvovirus titres indicate past infection.
AS do the herpes titres.

What kind of infection is the cytomegalovirus?
Many people are exposed, it usually becomes latent, as to the others.

It does not usually infect healthy people noticeably, but usually people with weakened immune systems.

Here is a write up by the mayo clinic.

As I said, I don't think you have an active infection at this point.

OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.
Otherwise please choose a positive rating . But, still come back if you need to…think of something later, etc. Bonuses are appreciated.

Another ?....What would cause your stomach to make noises after eating, make you have an upset stomach and loose stools at times?

Do you want to rate positive here for this new question?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I'm sorry, I'm not sure what you mean?

If we start a new question you can still rate positive here [the only way we are paid], or you can find me by request on a new thread.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

So, if I rate positive then I have to pay again, correct.

I do not know what your package is, that is customer service
We are expert site users
We are only paid per positive rating.
So a new question , if you are satisfied, needs a positive rating, or I am not paid by ja.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I can't afford another $25. I go to the dr. on Friday so I will ask him. Thanks so much.


You are welcome any time.
I don't know what it costs you but you might check with customer service
good luck.
