Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Test Cost

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a common virus that invades most individuals, including both adults and infants. CMV blood tests have been designed to detect the presence of antibodies generated against this common virus.

CMV infection is not a severe health condition; especially, if detected at an early stage. However, CMV infections don't come up with vivid symptoms and remain dormant for long duration. And this may make the disease slightly severe.

Individuals experiencing fever, gastrointestinal troubles like diarrhea, other issues suggesting ulcers, are some of the reasons to opt for the CMV test. Children having swollen liver or spleen, rashes, or are born with low birth weight, suggest CMV infections.

Pregnant women who are infected, should visit a child specialist even before the birth of their child. This help doctors take up steps to prevent some other health disorder that may affect your child some time later in life.

Diagnosis of CMV infection can be done through a blood test, that looks for antibodies produced by the body against the virus. IgM and IgG antibodies once produced by the immune system, remain in the body for a life time. Therefore, a blood test can reveal present or past infections. Besides blood, other bodily fluids, such as saliva or urine can also be tested to determine the infection.

CMV infections can be prevented by following healthy eating and drinking habits, careful sexual contacts, careful handling of newborns and their belongings, and of course, maintaining good personal hygiene. However, CMV infections are very common and even after following every suggested preventive measure, you may end up with the disease. Therefore, opting for early diagnosis and then a treatment could help to avoid complications.
