What does CMV IgG- positive indicate? - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query
we have been chatting for my son....
i had tests done for my baby....
reports are as under:
1) CMV IgG- positive
Yes I remember
I wanted to know the implications of this...
I was also, CMV-IgG positive and CMV igM negative, when my blood was taken by Lifecell, during their cord storage procedure...
it may indicates past infection, what did your doctor say?
the reports came today mornijng, and because of diwali, could not talk to him...
If it is due to past infection then you need not to worry
i guess mostly it indicates past infection since you had infection during pregnancy
Just discuss about this your doctor
ok....i would do so...
You son does not have any symptoms and has normal growth so you need not to worry much
Are you there?
yes..doc i am here...
since Igm is negative there is less chances if active infection
i just wanted to know, that if I was CMV IgG before pregnancy... then can the same be transmitted to my kid?
yes, anti bodies will present in your blood
ok....and if CMV IgG was positive to me, would that me that it would pass on to my kid as well, and hence he is CMV IgG positive?
it transmits to your son as well
what I am looking for is that I am worried on the fact that is that my kid is by default CMV igG positive as I was,...or he might have generated new infection during pregnancy?
Mostly it transmits from you
ok.....whether I should go for any further tests?? as i was reading that the effects of CMV come at later stage , and not at the time of birth, I am very confused....cant understand what to do? would talk to my pediatrician, but still dont know what to do....
yes, it effects later stage but not every kid
most of children will be healthy
just do follow ups with your doctor regarding his developement
Do you have any more queries?
no worries, think positive ok
Thanks for visiting me here. Bye for now.
