you can request that a titre is done for the diseases you wish. It's how they test for antibodies. If your child has had the natural disease, antibodies should show up.

Oftem times antibodies are not present in the body until the child comes in contact with the disease again and then the body brings on these antibodies.<br><br>
Because antibodies are a temporary response.<br><br>
We actually do not understand everything about immunity nor antibodies. That the person creates antibodies and then is immuned is only one theory. Science has already proven that it is not fact and can not be relyed upon.<br><br>
If your child had the natural disease, trust that he is immuned whether he shows antibodies or not because if the test would result in negative titers proves actually nothing.<br><br><a href="http://www.minnesotanaturalhealth.org/vaccines/immunesys.htm" target="_blank"><b>A temporary, humoral response...</b></a><br><br><a href="http://www.vaccinationdebate.com/articles.html#immunity" target="_blank"><b>Immunity - A Medical Myth</b></a>

Are you just wanting testing done for your own information or are you thinking you can use it in lieu of vaccination for school entry? If the latter is the case, you need to check your state laws because bloodwork isn't accepted for all illnesses vaxed for. IMO there isn't much point in checking pertussis antibodies because even natural infection doesn't confer lifelong immunity.

I agree with Gitti. Just because antibodies are detected at one point in time, it does not mean they are always there. It's like saying because soap is found in human homes it self-replicates.<br><br>
Best thing to do is to keep his little body as healthy as you can, avoid all chemicals and toxins(where possible) and feed him a healthy diet and stay away from medical doctors. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">
