New and confused
31 Aug 2018
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.
