However, elsewhere where I’ve read regarding this, no mention is made of IgG possibly indicating a “chronic” infection. Rather, on the http://www.fungusfocus.com website (and elsewhere) it says “IgG antibodies persist for many years after the infection has been cured.” Basically, as you said, the Ig results don’t tell me much, but the immune complexes result does. And that’s a good point that you made regarding my IgM value being borderline. I hadn’t thought about that. But considering I have been sick for more than 7 years, I wouldn’t think that the IgM would still be registering.
At any rate, I would still like to know if my 2.7 immune complex value is considered “off the charts” high or only somewhat high. Has anyone ever had that number be 5? 10? Or is 2.7 about as high as it gets?
And of course, what I’d really like to know (and I know that no one can answer this) is how long do I have to be on this diet and anti-fungals before I even START to feel better, because so far I haven’t had a significant change or improvement.
If I were in your position, I weren’t worried about the numbers regarding to the complexes. You have a positive test and also classic symptoms of Candida Related Complex. You are one of the few fortunate to have this test done. I am convinced you have this syndrome. I have seen some test results similar to your from other candida sufferers and never the number go so high, still they are positive.
You should concentrate in a program to be eradicating the overgrowth and to recover.
Nobody knows how fast you will respond and what is going to be effective for you.
Most of the time, people adjust the program during the journey to what best work for them.
