Crp was high now normal. Sed rate elevated. Ana+w/speck pattern. Thyroid ok. Metabilic and CBC and urine ok. Little low vitamin d... Any idea?
Labs mean little: CRP and sed rate vary greatly for no obvious reason frmo day to day. A majority of americans run a low vitamin d due to our diets & habits. My one concern is if the ANA is at a high-titer, which warns of lupus or a variety of other possibilities, but labs mean nothing apart from the history and physical exam. ...Read more
Ana+w/speck pat. 1:640. Sed rate elevated CRP ok. Cbc and metabolic and urine ok. Up back pain. Fatigue. Right flank pain. Lupus panel negatiive. ?
Not related to SLE: I'm certain that this ANA is related to your symptoms. You have an elevated sedimentation rate, but there's two things you need to realize. At age 73 you can have a positive ama due to autoimmunity of aging. As we get older our normal level for the sedimentation rate also increases. A simple formula is half your age and for a woman +10. Thus for you your normal sedimentation rate could be 45. Your physician needs to evaluate these issues also. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My bloodwork reveals chronic low lymphocytes and monocytes, high ch50, pos ssa and ssb, pos. Ana. What does all this mean?
Sjogren's: The presence of both the ss-a and ss-b antibodies strongly suggests sjogren's syndrome. While dryness of the eyes and mouth is the most common finding, many other symptoms and lab abnormalities may be seen in sjogren's syndrome. If you haven't already been evaluated, ask your pcp for referral to a rheumatologist. ...Read more
Can exercise cause slight increase ALT and AST but still normal range with normal ggt, alk phos and bilirubin?
3 separate things: ANA is a screening test. A positive result only indicates more testing might be needed to look for autoimmune diseases. Crp means something somewhere in the body is inflamed for some reason (and yes it really is that vague). Low vitamin d means you needs more vitamin d in the diet or in the form of vitamin pills. ...Read more
Can you have lupus with completely normal bloodwork? ANA, ENA neg, Complement levels normal, CBC normal. ESR of 2 and normal CRP
Yes: Ast and alt are measures of liver enzymes and often are elevated in the setting of hepatitis or other causes of injury to liver cells. However sometimes one or the other will be much more elevated. Sometimes fatty liver due to alcohol or some drugs/toxins can affect one enzyme more than the other. ...Read more
Elevated total WBC count (11,000) with elevated total neutrophils, lymphocytes and eosinophils. But CRP & SED rate are NORMAL. What causes this?
Any symptoms?: Why was the test done? Do you have any symptoms?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, your WBC is at the high end of normal, but it may be your normal. 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
