Hi,
Rubelle IgG positive means you had infection in past probably in childhood. Its a viral infection. If IgM is positive it means recent infection. IgG positive alone does not mean that you are infected. IgG are antibodies and and they need not be cleared from blood.

Best wishes,

During my pregnancy, my lab tests indicate I had high white blood cell count and low rbc count. I also tested high for absolute neutrophils and low for absolute eosinophils as well as having equivocal (leaning toward positive) detection of rubella IGG antibody. Later in the pregnancy, I developed significant swelling of lower extremeties that are getting worse each day and intense itching all over my body. Should I and my doctor be concerned. What do you think? What is your guestimate as to what s wrong with me.

Hi
I am 32 years old man. 3 years back I was suffering from typhoid fever for one and half months. I had taken Azythromycine antibiotic at that time. When the Typhoid fever was gone, I stopped taking this antibiotic. Since then my stools became very loose. 6 months before I caught tuberculosis. Now I am taking Akurit 4 and my health is recovering well. My weight was 55 KG when I was diagnosed with TB. Now I am 68 KG. I am still taking TB drugs. My height is 5 feet 10 inches. But my stools are still loose. I feel sometimes a tendency like vomiting. I told this to my doctor, he prescribed Widal test which came positive. (Typhi O – 1:320, Typhi H- 1:40, Typhi AH- 1:20, Typhi BH- 1:20). The doctor prescribed me Levofloxacin 10 tablets. When I taken Levofloxacin according to the prescribed dose, the vomiting gone away. But my stools are still very loose. I am also taking probiotics and prebiotics also as prescribed by my doctor. I again told the doctor about loose stools. He prescribed Rifaximine (RIFAGUT) antibiotic, 10 tablets and some probiotic combination (VSL#3 and Lifelac capsules). I have taken all the dose of Rifaximine. But there seems no use. What can I do for getting rid of loose stools? Please prescribe me some medicine as soon as possible. I am very nervous. Please help me.
