New and confused

Forums
Hi everyone! I am from India with project work stay in Dubai. My problem started 4 months back when for immigration I got all my test done (May 2018)including an STD panel. Everything came back normal except for IgG readings for Chlamydia T and Chlamydia Pneumoniae. The lab reported it as IgG (CT): 1.29 and IgG (CP) : 1.69. I was confused, I showed test to two MD (infectious diseases) who asked me to ignore. One of them saying maybe its CP you were exposed to a longtime back and it is cross reacting for CT too. On my own I got 2 more tests done with following results: June 2018: IgG (CT)- 1.09, Urine PCR for CT negative. IgG (CPN): 1.34 July 2018: IgG (CT)- 0.7, Urine PCR for CT negative. IgG (CPN): 3.2 the lab was the same and its criteria were <0.8 negative, 0.8-1.1 (unequivocal), >1.1 positive. I could not get this related to any titers criteria on the net, I asked the lab but no reply, the doctors asked me to ignore again. I have no symptoms except a slight niggles in both elbows and forearms and recently experiencing urge to sleep more often. Now my questions are: 1. Can anyone relate the lab index to titers criteria and let me know the readings? Are the readings bad? 2. I have a daughter and wife and I am afraid of giving it to them. I tried looking at the forum. In case I have CPN what are the chances of passing them on? Is it passed through kissing or only passed when you have a flu and infection is active. 3. My doctor said this is a common one and most people would test positive for it. So he asked to completely ignore. For CT, he said that there is a chance CPN antibodies reacted with your CT test and hence CT came positive twice. He asked me to do azithro course of three days for CT just to be sure even when I told him I never had sex outside marriage let alone unprotected. Now if I take azithro for 3 days will it make CPN worse or resistant? I have many such questions, the answer for which I could not find on the forum as well. Pardon me if I missed out somewhere. I even read the handbook. Please guide what approach should I take considering: 1. We have completely confident and ignorant doctors in India who are dismissive of this stuff. Is anyone from India and can guide me for good labs and doctors in Mumbai or Ahmedabad. The surprsing thing is no lab does this test except for the one where I got tested. No IgA and IgM are available.

Your igg teeter shows a yes for cpn. Someone wiser than I will be on shortly to answer your questions .

2003 Asthma diagnosis - 2004 took doxycycline per Dr. David Hahn work - asthma free. 2014 developed upper body myalgia/arthritis and asthma returned. Dec 2015 c pneumonia bloodwork IGG titer 1:512. Took 6 months of doxy for asthma flare up - again asthma gone but myalgia stayed. Dec 2017, extreme fatigue started. Emailed Dr. Wheldon. Research on cpnhelp.org - Jan 2, 2018 started Wheldon protocol.

Hello abeautifullife, my thoughts are that your doctor is correct In saying that most people will have a small cpn infection sooner or later, so don't worry about it. Unless you are actively coughing and sneezing you won't pass it on to your wife or daughter, unlike with c trach, but since that will be sorted out with just three days of azithromycin, take it, just to be on the safe side and to please your doctor. You won't make cpn worse or make it resistant.

- Thanks a ton! pjdelambo and Sarah for answering my queries. Sarah, this accidental discovery and what all I read on the blog has freaked me out completely, wish I didnt know about it, please help me sort out some more queries: 1. Do you have any idea how I can find titers equivalent to my readings of IgG, the lab doesnt reply. Because my titers reduced in the second readings and then doubled in the third. IgG:1.69, 1.29,3.2 respectively. 2. So will I have to watch out everytime I have a flu, i.e avoid my daughter and wife, what if I passed it to them already, or one of them passed it onto me :(. I am specially worried about what symptoms to watch out for in my daughter apart from unresolved coughing? 3. This interesting article I read freaked me out since it is quoted in a popular online medical news portal, https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/102418.php "The host carrying C. pneumoniae may pass on the bacteria through oral sex which within three weeks developes into chlamydia trachomatis. Chlamydia pneumoniae on average may take up to three weeks before any symptoms are noticed. The host carrying chlamydia pheumoniae will test negative for chlamydia trachomatis since the chlamydia bacteria is only in the lungs, but the infected partner will test positive for chlamydia trachomatis in about three weeks. Afterwhich, if both partners continue to have unsafe sex, both will test positive for chlamydia trachomatis and chlamydia pneumoniae. " Any thoughts on this? No matter how much I format, it doesn't paragraph :(

Look, do you mind me telling you that you have no worries at all! In fact your daughter is just as likely to get cpn or any other sniffly infection at school, come home and pass it on to you! One thing she won't bring home is chlamydia trachomatis because it is a completely different infection, despite what Dr Brian Cohan seems to think. Best steer clear of Medical News Today!

Your titres are low, so no need to treat, honestly. Also, if you have never had sex outside of your marriage, you won't have c trach either, but it is such an easy thing to cure, you will keep your doctor happy if you take three days of azithromycin.

Paragraphs: I changed the theme of this site and the current one won't do paragraphs again. I will get the web-man to sort it out next week but meanwhile, when you want to start a new paragraph, type < then p/ then > It's MAGIC!
