Mcv 81, LD 112, IgM 28, haptoglibin 365, e albumin 33, a2 glob 1.2, hgb 11.8, creat 0.5, hypoalbuminemiabi increased alpha 2 globulins.

Mcv 81, LD 112, IgM 28, haptoglibin 365, e albumin 33, a2 glob 1.2, hgb 11.8, creat 0.5, hypoalbuminemiabi increased alpha 2 globulins.

Please ask question: Haptoglobin appears to be normal which means no free hemoglobin and no hemolytic anemia. Hemoglobin of 11.8 is lowish for 48 year old with an MCV of 81 which may be associated with a degree of iron deficiency. Any evidence of nosebleeds or blood in bowel movements or urine? Please be more specific as to your question. Best wishes. ...Read more

What: What this means is that the blood protein levels show that there is no evidence of a blood tumor that is producing monoclonal antibodies, such as multiple myeloma, plasmacytoma, and some types of b-cell lymphoma. This does not rule out multiple other lymphomas and some other tumors. You need to follow up with your physician who can interpret this test in light of your clinical findings. ...Read more

Albumin PEP 3.7, Alpha-1-Globulins: 0.3 (0.1-0.4), 
 Alpha-2: 0.9 (0.6-1.2), 
 Beta: 1.6 (0.7-1.3), Gamma 1.2 (0.6-1.7). Is it ok that my Beta is high?

Need more info: 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, serum protein electrophoresis result gives more information by visual inspection and some times a follow-up test may be done depending on the pattern. Okay or not depends on what component of beta is high. Visit this site: http://www. Aafp. Org/afp/2005/0101/p105.html ...Read more

See below: 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.

Pathology - prostaglandin e2 serum came 534 high and alpha 1 globulin came. 4 high. McCoy came 80fl low and hematocrit 38% what's hat mean?

Pathology - prostaglandin e2 serum came 534 high and alpha 1 globulin came. 4 high. McCoy came 80fl low and hematocrit 38% what's hat mean?

Not much: Alpha 1 is mostly antitrypsin which is an acute phase reactant and if elevated it means nothing really. Prostaglandin E2 is not a routine piece of lab work. The 'city is okay for a guy. If by McCoy you mean MCV / mean corpuscular volume, 80 fL is okay with me as a pathologist. Relax and be glad for okay labs. ...Read more

Had normal spep test but heard about alpha1-antitrypsin deficiency while web surfing, now im concerned. My alpha-1-globulin, was normal 0.25 (0.17 - 0.50 g/d). No symptoms - should I take a1ad test?

Symptoms...: Alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency typically presents as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or copd, at a younger age. If members of your family have copd, and it was diagnosed younger than usual (like 20s-30s, for example), then it would be reasonable to get tested. But, if neither you nor family members have been diagnosed with copd, then it is unlikely you have Alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency. ...Read more

I had normal serum protein electrophoresis. Alpha-1-globulin is 0.25 (0.17 - 0.50 g/dl). Low end of normal? Do I need to test for alpha1-antitrypsin?

I had normal serum protein electrophoresis. Alpha-1-globulin is 0.25 (0.17 - 0.50 g/dl). Low end of normal? Do I need to test for alpha1-antitrypsin?

No: Don't bother. What would you do with a result? I'm going to assume that you are a non-smoker and that at age 31 your exercise tolerance is like your peers. You're probably not a candidate for pricey, inconvenient replacement. ...Read more

Albumin 53.9, Globulin 17.1 (alpha2: 4.5, gammaG: 7.6) all in g/L other globulins ok, calcium 2.50 mmol/L. ALT, Liver and kidneys ok. Should I worry?

Need more info.: It's impossible to analyze individual lab values without knowing more, such as the normal ranges at that lab and other medical history at the time of the blood draw. You should ask your doctor for his opinion of those labs. An alternative would be to upload the labs here on HealthTap Prime and have one of our doctors interpret them for you, in the context of your medical history. Good luck. ...Read more

What is the normal range of alpha 2 macroglobulin and if elevated what does it mean?

Many causes for: Increase. 100-280mg per 100 ml of serum is the normal level of Alpha 2. It is elevated in inflammation and nephrotic syndrome. However, all lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical test and the doctor who ordered the test is in the best position to do that. See this more info.

My g-globulin is 0.7 where norm is 0.7 to 1.7. Also ANA titter is 1:320 diffuse #.What do those two statements mean. I have been diagnosed scleritis?

Can be many things,,: These can mean many things. The low gamma globulins might mean hypogammaglobulinemia from their being used up in immune reactions and the ANA titer is high and indicates some possible autoimmune process going on as does your scleritis. The "diffuse" pattern can be synonymous with "homogenous" meaning anti-dsdna pointing to lupus, but more tests and symptoms may be needed for dx. Good luck. ...Read more

Need more info: I am assuming that you had a serum electrophoresis performed for one reason or another.

GFR 76 from 85 /creatinine. 80 from. 73 1yr; PEL/IFserum - for mm alpha 2 1.1; beta 1.3, rf 29, la/ssb 1.3 ana-; nocturi/RLS worsening. Any Ideas?

Overcall: I'm a pathologist and lab specialist and I think the public is being sold a bill of goods with these "estimated GFR's". They're antiscientific (there's a racial adjustment "because black people are more muscular"), and truth is, I think a creatinine of. 80 is fine. If you have nocturia, you need to be tested to see if you can concentrate your urine. The other labs require clinical correlation. ...Read more

No: Can't interpret random blood test results without context. Talk to the doctor that ordered the tests. Most medical tests (x-rays, blood tests, etc.,) are better at telling us what you don't have rather than diagnosing what (if anything) you do have wrong with you. ...Read more

Taking 1mg of Tenex (Guanfacine) every night made me somewhat hypersexual. However, taking 2mg several days ago made me impotent. Can someone please explain how alpha-2 agonists cause impotence?

Taking 1mg of Tenex (Guanfacine) every night made me somewhat hypersexual. However, taking 2mg several days ago made me impotent. Can someone please explain how alpha-2 agonists cause impotence?

Alpha 1&2 receptors: Try one and one half.

It seems that alpha 2 blockade is used in impotence to increase nitric oxide, but it seems you need both alpha 1 and 2 blockade to block vasoconstriction, since alpha 2 also block the release of norepinephrine and that will increase with alpha blockers.

Can gastritis elevate globulin levels to 4.2?

No: I wouldn't focus on labs but on your overall health. This is a bit elevated but reference ranges are set so that a few percent of folks fall outside on either side. Even mild liver dysfunction, as is often seen in overweight, can raise globulins impressively. See if a return to an intense, fitness-focused lifestyle like when you were a teen helps normalize this and some other things. Best wishes ...Read more
