Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
it looks like you have herpes virus in your body and your body has made anti herpes virus antibodies which are high at 7.07
the IgG antibody level was 7.07 correct?
this is the long term antibody which can be produced against HSV herpes type 2 virus if it is in your body if you have been exposed to herpes many years ago
was this for HSV1 or HSV2 virus?
let me know if you have questions.
