A positive result indicates that the patient has antibody to Mycoplasma. It does not differentiate between an active or past infection. The clinical diagnosis must be interpreted in conjunction with the clinical signs and symptoms of the patient.

The high Mycoplasma IGG could indicate an active (probably chronic) infection. An IGM response is an early antibody response. Eventually the immune system stops making IGM antibodies to infection and the IGG antibodies take over. Once the infection is cleared, the IGG level should come down.

 

Our LLMD interprets high IGG levels as chronic infections that need treatment.

 

Mycoplasma is very hard to irradicate. Look at the recent posts on Mycoplasma.
