What's the different between AMAS Test to Parneoplastic Anti Yo, Hu, Ri Blood test?

What's the different between AMAS Test to Parneoplastic Anti Yo, Hu, Ri Blood test?

Cancer adjuncts: The AMAS test comes from a lab run by a group of independent medical thinkers. I would caution you against relying on it in health-care decisions. The others are bona fide assays to detect particular antibodies that are sometimes made against cancers that make make you sick in the process. They need to be correlated with your signs and symptoms. ...Read more

I test my cholesterol its 246 ama my LDL is 177? Is itdangerous? How can I protect myself?

Find and Fix Causes: The first step is to determine if the LDL is elevated due to an acquired medical condition. If treatable conditions are identified i would manage those and start diet, exercise and lifestyle modifications. Soluble fiber and plant stanols can be used to lower ldl. If medications are needed options include statins, agents to decrease gut cholesterol absorption (ezetimibe, colesevelam) and niacin. ...Read more

Done an sgpt test and it says on the result that mine is 66 (ref: 9.00-52 u/l(h). Do i need to worry? I am drinking ptu (propylthiouracil) for my thyroidism continuously

PTU (propylthiouracil) and liver : Drugs like ptu (propylthiouracil) and Methimazole can cause liver toxicity but hyperthyroidism can also cause elevation int the liver enzyme test you had done. If your still early in your treatment and your thyroid hormone levels (free t4) is still high it could be that. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Is ama antibody test in any case ordered if hashimoto is suspected?

Is ama antibody test in any case ordered if hashimoto is suspected?

No: Ama (anti-mitochondrial antibody) is usually ordered in cases of a liver disease such as primary biliary cirrhosis. Hashimoto's autoantibodies are different. Ana, in case, you made a typo, isn't ordered either, but rather if suspicion exists for lupus, dermatomyasitis, sjogren's, etc. ...Read more

Positive AMA test of 28.1 units all liver tests are normal and ultrasound normal. I also have gilbert syndrome. Is this something to worry about?

Positive AMA test of 28.1 units all liver tests are normal and ultrasound normal. I also have gilbert syndrome. Is this something to worry about?

?ANA test: If this is an ANA test, the titer is low and may not be significant. Gilbert's syndrome is a congenital disorder which is quite benign and rarely a problem. In view of no other liver abnormalities and a nonspecific ? ANA titer, I feel you have nothing to worry about, but you could also consult a hepatologist or rheumatologist if you have further concerns. ...Read more

Is there a blood test for cancer of all types? I read an article about something called an amas test. Is it viable?

No, there isn't : But we're working on it. We are developing antigen or protein marker assays for several specific types of carcinoma, much like the psa test that we have for prostate ca. There are some other tests that we find to be connect with a diagnosed case of ca, which we then follow if they truly correlate with expansion or contraction of the tumors. ...Read more

I have alkaline phosphatase elevated (450u/l) as well as (sgpt), (sgot), and ama test is positive, age 37y (woman), have anaemia and low level of iron?

I have alkaline phosphatase elevated (450u/l) as well as (sgpt), (sgot), and ama test is positive, age 37y (woman), have anaemia and low level of iron?

Sort this out: You need to be told straight-up whether you are going to be diagnosed with & treated for primary biliary cirrhosis. If you also have iron deficiency anemia, the cause needs to be found. I hope you are not a non-supplementing vegetarian & that a search for possible sources of blood loss is underway. Be proactive & insist on answers. Good luck. ...Read more

Their argument...: Is that switching to the icd-10 would is overly burdensome, expensive, and has not been proven to improve patient care or safety at all. Do we really need a code for “walked into lamppost, initial encounter" (w22.02xa), or “burn due to water-skis on fire” (v91.07xa)? Both real icd-10 codes. ...Read more
