1) when testing, should you always test with the same lab? For example always LabCorp or always quest? Or can you bounce around different labs? What’s the best thing to do?
I think it is best to use the same lab – otherwise you are kind of comparing apples and oranges.
2) in terms or accuracy with HSV2 IgG which lab do you find most accurate? Quest? LabCorp? Another lab?
Both have many false positives. However, if you use LabCorp and the IgG is positive, they will reflex to a supplemental test, and if that is negative, then you are very likely negative. However, I have over 100 people now who test positive on the supplemental and negative on the western blot so keep that in mind
Is there a more accurate test? Western blot is a long process. Is anything better than the blood test other than western blot?
