Re: Can anyone interpret Epstein Barr results for me?

I would feel lucky to have your numbers. It looks like you're doing well, to me. I'm new to this so here goes..

According to my paperwork that I got from the lab this is the "range" you need to be in;

Viral Capsid Ag, IgG 0.0-21.9 U/mL - - - My result was 199.9 U/mL
Viral Capsid Ag, IgM 0.0-43.9 U/mL - - - My result was <10.0 U/mL
Nuclear Ag, IgG 0.0-21.9 U/mL - - - My result was >599.9 U/mL
Early (D) Ag, IgG 0.0-10.9 U/mL - - - My result was <5.0 U/mL

Do they have a different way of measuring because your numbers seem to be ALL within the "normal" ranges for someone who has had some kind of infection in the past... that the infection is in the "dormant" stage. [Kinda like being in remission?]

If I understand what my doctor said yesterday, and our labs ran the same tests using the same measurement for the "normal" range.. then your test indicates that your Epstein Barr Virus is dormant, supressed by your immune system and should not be causing you any serious problems.

Does this help you?
