Dr. Brims :

Hello, welcome to the site! My name is***** will try to assist you with your medical question and any medical information you seek.

Dr. Brims :

Can you list the reference ranges for the lab and indicate which EBV VCA is IgM and which one is IgG?

Customer: EBV Ab VCA >8.0
Customer: EBV Ab VCA IgG >8.0 EBV Ab VCA IgM <0.2 EBV Early <0.2 EBV Nuclear >8.0
Dr. Brims :

Can you list the reference ranges for the lab you got the results from?

Dr. Brims :

Hello?

Customer: <0.0 - <0.9 my husband had my same number except the Early is >1.5. I am <0.2
Dr. Brims :

Okay, the Early and IgM occur with active infection and disappear, the IgG is high when there has been a past infection, the nuclear is also high with past infection.

Dr. Brims :

Your results mean you have had EBV before in the past and have recovered
