Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Antibody Test, IgG
Experiencing symptoms such as fatigue, fever, or
swollen glands? A Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Antibody Test, IgG, can help determine
whether you’ve been previously exposed to the CMV virus. This test detects IgG
antibodies, which typically appear after the initial infection and remain in
the body long-term. A positive result suggests past exposure or infection.
While CMV may not always cause symptoms, it can be a concern for individuals
with weakened immune systems or pregnant women. Consultation with a healthcare
provider is crucial for proper evaluation and management.
