Explanation Of TORCH Test Results At 8 Weeks’ Gestation?
Hello, I am 26 years old, I am pregnant the first 8-week pregnancy, last week I TORCH test results came out like this:
Good afternoon. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The condition of the TORCH examination is indeed important to be carried out, especially for those who are pregnant. This is related to the condition of the infection which usually will experience severe things to the fetus such as growth disorders such as enlarged head, disturbance to the heart, disorders of the eye or ears.
The examination that is usually done is the examination of Toxoplasma, Rubella, and CMV. IgG in general is a protein that usually indicates that the body has immunity. Usually if you show positive generally formed immunity. Will appear about 2 months after infection and the results will usually remain positive. IgG levels can increase if re-infection occurs from the same virus.
However, if it is accompanied by positive IgM it can usually indicate that there is still a new infection because usually IgM will be positive about 1-2 weeks after infection and reach the highest level until about 4-6 weeks from the first time exposed. Usually it will become negative after 1 year of infection.
Then in general is b
IgM + IgG - à infection is active and requires treatment
IgM - IgG + à infection has occurred more than 1 year and now the condition is immune
IgM + IgG + à infection is recurring and needs further examination
So seeing from the condition that the mother said, it is better to do an examination also related to the condition of IgG from the mother so that it can better ascertain the mother's current condition.
