According to a Yahoo! Health article (http://health.yahoo.com/infectiousdisease-diagnosis/rubella-test/healthwise--hw5576.html): A rubella blood test detects antibodies that are made by the immune system to help kill the rubella virus. These antibodies remain in the bloodstream for years. The presence of certain antibodies indicates a recent infection, a past infection, or that you have been vaccinated against the disease. The presence of IgM antibodies means you have a current or recent rubella infection. The presence of IgG antibodies means…

Please check with your health care provider for information specific to your situation.

Yes. You can take a simple blood test to identify,elevated antibodies to food allergens and delayed food sensitivities (IgG). The ALCAT Test also differs from standard IgG tests in that they rely exclusively on one immune pathway, serum levels of immunoglobulin G (IgG). In fact, high food specific IgG titers are indicative only of exposure, not necessarily intolerance.
