High Epstein Barr VCA AB IGG and EBV Nuclear

I am 26 year old male. I had severe mono when I was 18. Had blood test last month and my Epstein Barr VCA AB IGG of 3.85 (high)
and EBV Nuclear AG 4.88.

My grandfather had Hodgkins and died of it in 1959. I have read about the connection to Hodgkins with high elevated IGG and Nuclera AG.

Does High Results (above) and Hodgkins of my grandfather mean I will get Hodgkins?

Thank so much.

I just found out I was positive for the Esptien Barr Virus. What are your symptoms? I've had mono before but when the nurse called me and told me I was positive she said just treat it like mono. I had
a blood test for Esptien Barr not a mono test.

Re: High Epstein Barr VCA AB IGG and EBV Nuclear

It's according to if it's active now or was active in the past.

Just go to your doctor and ask the questions. It is so common. Just ask the doctor what to do. Don't worry. Really so common. But I'd ask doctor to explain what results mean....and I also went online to Just You have to pay a fee to get an answer.

However, my doc said I had Epstein Barr in my blood as it shows I had it in the past and had antibodies from that time. I don't have it now.

. Just ask doc what it means and ask if the results are from the past mono or if you have mono again. Whatever it is ask doc how to build up immunity. We all need to do that. 95% of people have Epstein Barr in their system. Again, ask him if it is from the past or do you have it again.


Be good to yourself. Tell nurse you want to speak to doc.
