Okay i had major lyme and was well for 6 years. A year ago symptoms came back did Wb marker 41 so doc is treating lyme again.

I also had the following EBV 4.8 i do not ever remember having mono in my life? Altho honestly i wonder if i could have had it and just got over it. Would explain being tired most of my life. But it has never show up till now. Doc isnt saying anything about this so asuming its nothing to be concerned about.

Oh and im 62 no kids home cannot figure out how i would have got this

Also low in Vit D

Thanks Terry

IGG indicates past exposure,not active infection, however if the IGG is high enough it may indicate something is going on. These viruses like to come out and play when Lyme takes hold. They go back to dormant once your immune system calms down and you treat the Lyme properly!!!

If you are low in Vitamin D, then fix that.

With regard to EBV, I am not familiar with that reference range. Here is some info on EBV (using a different reference range):


Here is a link to an article about chronic EBV infection:

http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/cgi-bin/fulltext/111088889/PDFSTART

These authors find EBV VCA IgG of >=1:640 and EA of >=1:160 in patients with chronic active EBV infection (CAEBV).

This link gives additional info:

http://www.vicd.info/testing.html

Dr. Montoya's criteria for participation in his recent research is at this link:

http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct/show/NCT00478465?order=1

The criteria he used is:

# Patients with "high" antibody titers against HHV-6 IgG ≥ 640, EBV VCA IgG ≥ 640 and detectable EA Ab at 1:160 or HHV-6 IgG ≥ 320 if EBV VCA IgG ≥ 1280 and has detectable EA Ab at 1:160 (measured by the average of a minimum of two time points obtained during screening at least 3 weeks apart).

Best, Timaca
