I was recently tested positive for dengue virus by a lab called 'Merlieux' in Lyon, France.
The report was very sparse simply stating 'Recent infection suggested. IgG antibodies 6,3 Threshold 0,9 & IgM antibodies 8,3 Threshold 0,9
I don't understand what this means and I don't think the consultant cardiologist where I work in Saudi Arabia really understood the exact significance of the above levels.
Could you please shed some enlightenment and also does it look as though, as I suspect, this is a secondary dengue infection. My platelet count went down to 87,000 and my nose bled. I had a bad case of flu in 2003 living in the Philippines and I now think that might have been my primary infection. I understand (think?) the I'm levels are indicative of prior infection?
