User:Hi Good Morning Doctor
User:I had a question about my wife
Doctor:Good morning. How may i Help you ?
User:she is 9 week pregnant, we did initial tests at week 5
User:all were normal except Rubella IgG as 131.10 iu/ml (normal range 0.00 to 4.99) at week 5
Doctor:This is an antibody test
User:at week 9 our doctor recommended to perform Rubella IgG avidity
Doctor:High titer of rubella IgG does not mean person is having active Rubella
User:which is now Rubella IgG Avidity is 87.66 %
User:what does this avidity reflect?
Doctor:it can be due an infection in the past
User:should i consider this is normal, I mean there is no risk????
Doctor:Avidity just reflects on how much specific the antibodies are
Doctor:If you wife has no symptoms, you should take it as normal
User:another question about urine R/E
