I found a post of yours on MedHelp (link at bottom of my post) where the ‘patient’ tested roughly 6 different times on Herpeselect for HSV2 IGG and it was not until Week 15 that they finally tested in positive range. This person on previous tests had an HSV2 IGG that ranged from approx. 0.35-0.52. You stated that Normally, the index values that you see for negative tests are quite low, 0.01 maybe up to 0.20.
1) My question and concern is that my Herpeselect test only told me that I am less than 0.90. So doesn’t this mean that I could be at 0.88 and progressing to positive?
2) I would like to know my specific IGG so that I can see if it is progressing higher. How are people getting these specific IGG readings? I have gone to Quest Diagnostics twice now for Herpeselect IGG and they are only providing the <0.90 range. Is there a specific Herpeselect test code that my DR needs to order? Or do I need to go to Labcorp?
