Hi, Lightlife. Sorry you didn't get any replies. Usually people respond to posts about
test results, but I guess the holidays were a distraction.
I have no special familiarity with the lab you used, but I am familiar with what you were being tested for.
A very high IgG result can mean active (or reactivated infection). Generally speaking, IgM means current infection and IgG means past, but it's not always so cut and dried, especially for those of us with immune dysfunction.
HHV6 is a common thing to be positive for, as is EBV. My EBV titers are always extremely high. This is common for folks with chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis, especially. Most people have several viral antibodies because we've all been exposed to various viruses in our lives, but for those of us with chronic illnesses and immune system issues, it's good to consider the overall load on your immune system. My LLMD likes to treat people with high virus titers (including IgG) for chronic viruses using monolaurin, olive leaf, or prescript
ion antiviral meds, just in case those viruses have been reactivated or are causing an overall drain on the system.
Yersinia pestis is spread by fleas and is known as the plague. It sounds scary, but a lot of people test positive for exposure to it if they happen to be tested for it.
Lyme doctors like to test for these to get a picture of the overall number of things your system has been exposed to and how stressed it might be. They're not really looking for some sort of silver bullet that will be the key to your recovery. It's more about
the quantity of positives, rather than the specific positives, at least for my docs.
Mycoplasma pneumoniae is also very common - both as a tick-borne co-infection, and just in general. Half of my kid's friends have had it in the form of the respiratory bug "walking pneumonia." Here's what Rawls has to say about
The Borrelia species can be caught outside of Europe. There are lots of Borrelia species, and there aren't tests for all of them, but fortunately they tend to respond to the same treatments, to some degree.
I'm not sure about
the reliability of candida testing.
