The CMV IgG & IgM test is a blood test that helps detect the presence of antibodies against the virus cytomegalovirus (CMV) in the body. The CMV is a common virus that belongs to the herpesvirus family.

It spreads through close contact with an infected person's bodily fluids, such as saliva, urine, blood, and breast milk. Most people with CMV do not experience symptoms, but it can cause severe complications in individuals with weakened immune systems such as newborns and people undergoing chemotherapy or organ transplants.

Symptoms of CMV infection include:

  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Sore throat
  • Swollen glands
  • Muscle aches

Individuals who have weakened immune systems or are pregnant should opt for the CMV IgG & IgM test to detect the presence of the virus in their bodies. Pregnant women who contract CMV for the first time during pregnancy can pass it on to their unborn child and cause congenital disabilities.

To collect a blood sample for the CMV IgG & IgM test, a laboratory technician will tie an elastic band around your upper arm to create pressure and make your veins swell with blood. They will then clean the area with an antiseptic and insert a needle into your vein to collect the blood sample.

The procedure for the CMV IgG & IgM test involves analyzing the collected blood sample to detect antibodies against the virus. The test checks for two types of antibodies - immunoglobulin G (IgG) and immunoglobulin M (IgM). IgG antibodies indicate a previous CMV infection, whereas IgM antibodies indicate a recent or active infection.

If an individual receives a positive diagnosis for CMV infection, they can discuss treatment options with their physician. Treatment may involve taking antiviral medications to reduce the severity of symptoms and prevent complications. Additionally, individuals can take steps such as frequent hand washing and avoiding close contact with others to prevent the spread of the virus.

To opt for the CMV IgG & IgM test on Apollo 24/7, individuals can book an appointment online or through the mobile app. The Apollo 24/7 CMV IgG & IgM test price is reasonable, and the test results are made available 24-48 hours after sample collection.

Benefits of early diagnosis through the CMV IgG & IgM test include:

  • Early detection of CMV infection
  • Prompt diagnosis and management of symptoms
  • Prevention of complications associated with a weakened immune response
     

faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Is CMV infection dangerous during pregnancy?

Yes, CMV infection during pregnancy can be dangerous and may cause miscarriage, stillbirth, or birth defects such as hearing loss, vision loss, and intellectual disability in the baby. Pregnant women should take steps to prevent CMV infection and get tested if they suspect they have been exposed.

How can CMV infection be prevented?

CMV infection can be prevented by practising good hygiene such as washing hands frequently, avoiding close contact with people who are sick, and not sharing food, utensils, or drinks with others. Pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems should take extra precautions.

Can a person get reinfected with CMV?

It is possible for a person to get reinfected with CMV, but it is rare. Once a person has been infected with CMV, the virus remains dormant in their body and can reactivate later in life, causing symptoms or spreading to others.

What does a positive diagnosis of CMV infection mean?

A positive diagnosis means that antibodies against the virus were detected in your sample, indicating that you have been infected with CMV at some point.

Can CMV infection be treated?

Treatment may include antiviral medications to reduce the severity of symptoms and prevent complications. Additionally, individuals can take steps to prevent the spread of the virus such as frequent hand washing and avoiding close contact with others.
