How to check an infant's CMV IgG level? - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query
Hello doctro, we just chatted, sometime back...regarding my son's HC
Yes I remember
I also told you that my maternal blood report, which was taken by lifecell showed CMV IgG positive...
I wanted to now check, whether my son is currently suffering from CMV or not?
Yes, you can check it by blood tests
however, i found that this test can be conducted only within 2-3 weeks of birth
Ok....what should I quote ?....it can checked through CBC, or i need to quote for specific CMVinfection?
But sometimes IgG indicates past infection, you son blood showed it positive may be due to you might have infection in early preagnancy
ok....ill do so...i am going to meet him today at 4....so would ask him for specific test for the same...
CMV IgG positive is reflected in my blood report...i dont have blood report formy son yet
there are other tests like PCR test or viral culture
then it may reflects past infection
however, i dont know, when CMV came and created antibodies...i.e. it came before pregnancy or during pregnancy
better get blood tests for baby to confirm it
I hope mostly it will be negative
yes...would check with my pediatrician...and would get the test done
Ok let me know about results ok
lets hope so....HC have made me very nervous, and hence i dont want to take any chance...
yes,,,would let you know...thanks
You son Hc is not low it is in normal range , moreover he is doing good so far
so need not worry much, think positive ok
Do you have any more queries?
no..doc bye for now...
Thanks for visiting me here. Bye for now.
