Help me understand my results.

Recommended Posts

I am reading my lab results and trying to understand them.

HSV I/II IgG = 9.3 Index 0.0-0.8

HSV 1 IgG, Type Spec = 1.35 Index 0.00 - 0.90

HSV 2 IgG, Type Spec = <0.91 Index 0.00 - 0.90

What exactly does it mean?

Last week I found weird stuff on my penis, after looking at pictures I thought it could be Herpes. Got my lab results today, does it mean I have Genital Herpes 1 or 2? What is the 9.3 index mean?

Confused.

I will. I am just so confused. Have not been able to sleep for the last week or so. I had and talked to my gf about it. She will get a blood test this coming Monday.

It has been really hard for us. She is such a great person and has been very supporting the entire time. It's so hard to understand what the results means. I just want to get this over with and get on with my life. My life has changed so much this year already.

In addition to my original post.

there was also this result.

HSV, IgM i/II Combination = 2.18 HIGH Ratio 0 - 0.91.

There were so many results in my test that I did not read the IgM results. But regardless it seems IgG results are important.

I have read about Igm and IgG and it seems IgG results are more accurate. I just dont know, in reality it all seems it won't really matter. I will jut have to add HSV-1 to my HepB diagnosis.
