Whay does it mean if my protein c functional is high?

Whay does it mean if my protein c functional is high?

Practically none: From a "coagulation" stand point, a low protein c is clinically significant i.e. Increased risk of clots and possibly risk of miscarriage. Protein c deficiency is rare. High protein c does not directly cause medical problems/ not medically significant. ...Read more

Tolerance (Definition)

When one takes a drug, such as heroin or alcohol, repeatedly, 'tolerance' develops because more of the drug is needed to give the same effect on the body/brain; e.g. Liver enzymes r stimulated to metabolize the drug faster and faster. There may be a strong genetic predisposition to addiction, some studies suggesting that 1 of 10 people will become dependent on alcohol or some ...Read more

I recently got my blood report.I have c-reactive protein(c.R.P.) positive with 4.8 mg/dl & erythrocyte sedimentation rate 24 and packed cell volume 33?

Inflammation: You are anemic and have inflammation. Check 25-oh vit d level. Anemia could be due to iron deficiency if having heavy periods. That can make you more toxic to cadmium a pollutant that is activated by stress and increases cr-protein. Improve health with healthy food, supplements to prevent deficiency, a good night sleep, mild exercise through the day, and de-stress. See kelly mcgonigal's book. ...Read more

I just received some test results back that said my protein c is high, protein s is low my pai-1 is high, my chloride is high and my co2 is low?

Clot risk.: A high protein c has no significance, only low. A low protein s, like protein c, is a risk for having abnormal blood clots or pregancy complications. Protein c and s cooperate to dissolve blood clots. Pai-1 blocks the clot dissolving pathway, so a high level also is a risk for abnormal clots. A high chloride and low co2 are part of the salts in the blood that are regulated by the kidneys. ...Read more

What are protein c and protein s tests?

What are protein c and protein s tests?

Tests for clotting: People whose blood tends to clot excessively can have deep vein thrombosis (clots in veins in the legs or abdomen) or pulmonary emboli (clots that travel to the lungs). A deficiency of protein c or protein s, among other things, can cause excess clotting. Tests for protein c or s are used to diagnose levels of these proteins in the blood. ...Read more
