In the arena of stem: Cell transplantation this is more defined than in the past. Class one match (hla a, b and c) and class two (hla dr and dq) are all performed at high resolution (gene level tryping). The best match with all loci evaluated will produce the lowest chance of graft rejection. Mis-match can be assessed in the gvhd and host vs graft (rejection) direction. ...Read more

My g.P."blood work results normal", detail results flaged; mpv 7.2(low), %eosin 5.7(high), cpr 5.0 (high), free testost s 0.2 (low), anyguesseswillhelp!
CRP: The only one of those results that peaks my attention is the elevated crp. That indicates an inflammatory condition in your body and your doctor will probably have some ideas of what systems to further assess. The low testosterone isn't very specific so it should be repeated as a total and free testosterone in early A.M. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Lab numbers: These numbers don't show changes at joints and with most auto immune disorders, you may have periods of pain and increased lab numbers, usually related to stress in your life, and once treated medically or with stress reduction, pain/lab should improve. May want xray of one of involved joints just inflamed which can return to baseline. ...Read more

Moms blood protein [email protected] 8.5g/dl (8.3 upper limit). Alb ok. [email protected] upper limit of normal. A/G ratio [email protected] .8 (1.1-2.2). Low iron,high ferritin. Hgb [email protected] 12g/dl (12.5-16). eGFR 59. Can biopsy-proven chronic gastritis explain? Push for electrophoresis?
Repeat labs: All of the abnormal labs there are borderline. None of them seem to stand out as a major problem. I think if she has a diagnosis of gastritis, and it is being treated, it would be OK to wait a few weeks and redraw her blood work to see if it is still abnormal. Good luck to both of you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
