Not sure, but I know my Epstein-Barr was extremely elevated when i was really sick as a celiac. High ANA and white blood cell count also. I was put on an anti-viral and treated for candida, which seemed to help bring it back down. Hope this helps.

It means you have had Mono at some point in your life, but not recently.

Here is some information about it.

http://www.cdc.gov/n...iseases/ebv.htm

IgM to the viral capsid antigen appears early in infection and disappears within 4 to 6 weeks. IgG to the viral capsid antigen appears in the acute phase, peaks at 2 to 4 weeks after onset, declines slightly, and then persists for life. IgG to the early antigen appears in the acute phase and generally falls to undetectable levels after 3 to 6 months. In many people, detection of antibody to the early antigen is a sign of active infection, but 20% of healthy people may have this antibody for years.
