Confusing results..HELP

Recommended Posts


I had blood drawn for various lab tests. Maybe about 6 small tubes. All done in one day. However, in the lab report there are 4 different results on paper as follows:

Herpes Simplex I and II Antibody IgG Result 2.8

HSV-1 Glycoprotein G Antibody IgG Result <0.91

HSV-2 Glycoprotein G Antibody IgG Result <0.91

Herpes Simplex I and II Antibody IgM Result <0.91

The references in the lab report indicated that <0.91 is negative.

as noted in the report, all these tests were observed in chronological order, with the top being first. the doctor mentioned NOTHING about that 2.8 result to me during my follow up. A few visits later, a different doctor went over the results again with me, and just told me it's nothing to worry about. I am so lost here. These doctors don't want to help me or something. Do I have it or not?

Someone please help me. It seems I find more answers online than in the doctors office.

That does sound confusing. Call your doctors back and ask them about the 2.8 figure.

Also search the Forums, I know several people have posted how to interpret results here.

Good luck!

      Hey so I have told a few people when I was first diagnosed and panicky. My mother knows, and 3 close friends and honestly to my surprise they were very supportive and just wanted to make sure I was okay, they still invite me out like usual nothing has changed and atleast one of them gets oral coldsores it's the same damn thing. I dont tell coworkers I draw the line there and I don't tell men who are interested in me it's not their business unless I choose to become physical with them and therefore risk transmition. I have been dating through a herpes dating site and it's been working out well for me I'm not totally sure I want to be "out" to everyone because the world is still the world and their are immature people out there.

      Just tell him you have been thinking about it and you want to go get tested with him. Don't believe anyone until you see their paperwork

      Amazon has it in bulk and caps

      I've used it to effectively abort an outbreak immediately. See here: Pretty convinced of the combo for this. Never had any success like that before ever. Will 100% keep using it.
