I'm 23 male my ra factor is 100 positive my ccp is 16 negative, sed rate 12 negative, and crp. 13 negative can high blood fats cause + ra factor?

I'm 23 male my ra factor is 100 positive my ccp is 16 negative, sed rate 12 negative, and crp. 13 negative can high blood fats cause + ra factor?

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. Having said that, rheumatoid factor is not a specific marker for rheumatoid arthritis. It can be positive in many situations, including recovery from infection. High blood fat per se is not a cause of +RA factor. ...Read more

Sedimentation Rate (Definition)

Is the rate at which red blood cells sediment in a period of 1 hour. It is non-specific measure of inflammation. It is performed by placing anticoagulated blood sample in an upright tube (westergren tube) then measuring the rate at which red blood cells fall (in mm per hour). It is useful in diagnosis of some diseases, such as autoimmune diseases, for assessment of severity of ...Read more

A positive ANA test, vitamin d deficient, anemia, body aches, and high sed rate. Could all of these symptoms be caused from celiac?

A positive ANA test, vitamin d deficient, anemia, body aches, and high sed rate. Could all of these symptoms be caused from celiac?

No: Celiac disease can cause vitamin d deficiency and anemia, but it's not associated with a positive ANA test. Most patients with celiac have a normal sed rate. Vitamin d deficiency is often associated with myalgia. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease, and having one autoimmune disease increases your chances of having another one, such as lupus, which can explain your posiitve ANA and body aches. ...Read more

I have anemia, vitamin d deficient, positive ANA test, high sed rate, body aches, complement component c3c is 220, c4c is 51, c-reactive is. 97explain?

More than one issue: You did not state your age or gender and it is difficult to tie all the findings together without a physical examination. Vitamin d is the easiest to deal with, about 1/3 of the population has low vit d levels, and you can correct that with an over the counter supplement. Rest of the finding suggest and autoimmune process, but you need to consult a physician for a thorough evaluation. ...Read more

Positive ANA 1.80 spreckled, ALT 7 Low High CRP & sed rate Extreme fatigue, rashes, joint pain, hair loss, mouth sores, migratory arthritis, anemia, etc. MRI Consistent with Proliferative Synovitis (i.e. rheumatoid or psoriatic) Is this lupus or?

Positive ANA 1.80 spreckled, ALT 7 Low High CRP & sed rate Extreme fatigue, rashes, joint pain, hair loss, mouth sores, migratory arthritis, anemia, etc. MRI Consistent with Proliferative Synovitis (i.e. rheumatoid or psoriatic) Is this lupus or?

I suspect so: The low ALT means nothing at all. Get a Coombs' test to see if your anemia is autoimmune, and of course the essential lupus labs -- anti dsDNA, anti-Sm, anti U1RNP, anti-Ro, anti-La. These labs are prone to technical errors. The real question is, "Do we TREAT you? If so, how? " That's why there are rheumatologists and regardless, you need a relationship with a trustworthy specialist. ...Read more

Can anemia (hgb 8 for 65 yo f) cause sed rate of 80? Is hs-crp 8.5 and crp 0.4 consistent for the same person? Should be on steroid to bring it down?

Can anemia (hgb 8 for 65 yo f) cause sed rate of 80? Is hs-crp 8.5 and crp 0.4 consistent for the same person? Should be on steroid to bring it down?

Visit your MD: I believe you meant to put another number before the 8 in your Hemoglobin report, maybe 12.8? Normal is about 12-15. Anemia can cause a high sedimentation rate because the sedimentation rate of red blood cells is being measured, so if there are less, sedimentation will happen at a faster rate. You need to be followed by a specialist in Hematology/Oncology. ...Read more

Is a sed rate of 30 high? What does this mean? A cause of my chronic hives? Also my rdw was high...at a 18.8

Is a sed rate of 30 high? What does this mean? A cause of my chronic hives? Also my rdw was high...at a 18.8

Sed rate: A sed rate of 30 is not too high, normal is up to around 20. It is a lab doctors use to follow inflammation in the body, it may be high due to your hives, or arthritis, or infection, or another auto immune disease. You do not treat a see rate, rather you look for some cause of inflammation in the body that may be triggering it to be elevated. ...Read more

Many possibilites: First fix the easy stuff, vitamin (e.g. 50, 000 IU weekly of a good quality Vit D3 from sheep lanolin), sort out & resolve the anemia & get better quality help worthy of your trust.
