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

Dear sir, what is protein c and protein s 
I need your info about it?

Blood coagulation: Protein C and S work together in regulating the clotting of blood. These proteins are important in controlling the amount of blood clot formation inside blood vessels. Deficiency of either can lead to venous blood clot formation. Deficiencies of both are not that common. ...Read more

Protein S 107% (60-130) Protein C 67%.( 70-140) should I be concerned with low protein C results ?

Protein S 107% (60-130) 
Protein C 67%.( 70-140) should I be concerned with low protein C results ?

No: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, the results you provided are not a cause for concern. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Can a person have both a protein c and protein s deficiency?

Can a person have both a protein c and protein s deficiency?

Yes: Combined protein c and protein s deficiencies can occur in one individual who is unlucky enough to inherit both autosomal dominant traits. This is very rare. Care should be taken as to when to check levels of these two proteins since both of them would be low in patients taking warfarin since both are also vitamin k-dependent in their production in the liver. ...Read more

What does it mean when elevated levels of protein c and protein s ?

What does it mean when elevated levels of protein c and protein s ?

See below : These are blood tests that we usually do to screen people who we think have a predisposition to have blood clots. By themselves they don't mean anything as normal people can have elevated levels. If you have a strong family history of blood clots or if u have had a blood clot yourself then this test could have significance. The best thing to do would be to discuss with a hematologist. ...Read more

Are there any emergency contraception options for people that have protein c deficiency?

Yes: "morning after" or emergency contraceptive pills that contain no estrogen do not increase risks of clotting. Plan b one-step, for example, is available without prescription. Some women with clotting disorders opt to use iud's for contraception. A copper iud can be inserted for emergency contraception in women who wish to continue this method. ...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?

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
