I’m just delighted to see that you posted your western blot results. for those reading this that have positive IgG tests, regardless of index values and without symptoms ever, I would encourage you to consider the blot. I am now regularly seeing false positives at numbers far greater than 3.0. I have now seen a false positive at 17! Please – if you have any question about a diagnosis that has been made via IgG test, get a better test. The western blot is the gold standard.
