HSV status of recent test

I got my recent test result where as below:

HSV 1 IgG - 1.1
HSV 2 IgG - 0.1

The doctor told me I got both infection. However, the scale shows that I'm negative for type 2.

I need your advise. Please help.

Hi with a 1.1 for the hsv1 its almost certain its  negative. Number 3.5 and above would be positive. retest again.
Hi Dave, What about hsv 2 igg result- 0.1. The range tells anything below 0.51 is negative but my doctor said since antibodies shown in the result I'm positive. I'm confused now.
