Anti thryroglobulin anti level 14.9 ?anti microsomal ab level 77?

Anti thryroglobulin anti level 14.9 ?anti microsomal ab level 77?

Elevated: Hi. In the labs I know, those levels would be above normal, indicating an autoimmune process in the thyroid. They do not imply anything about thyroid function, and can be seen elevated in hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, and with normal thyroid function. If your thyroid function is abnormal, those antibodies would imply an autoimmune etiology. ...Read more

Sjögren's syndrome: Anti-ssa antibodies are most commonly associated with Sjögren's syndrome, but it does not confirm a diagnosis. Pts should may have symptoms of dry eyes and dry mouth, which are classic for Sjögren's syndrome. These ab's are also associated with connective tissue diseases such as lupus or SLE. However, a pt must have clinical and lab abnormalities to meet the diagnosis. ...Read more

Hepatitis B tests: An antibody means that your body reacted to something and tried to fight it off. That's your immune system doing what it's supposed to. An antigen is something like a piece of virus that shouldn't be there. Your test report shows you were exposed to Hepatitis B but luckily your body fought it off. This HepBe test helps prove if you developed immunity from natural infection or from the vaccine. ...Read more

I'm hebs ag negative with a high anti hbs antibody from vaccination. This week's test was reported as hebs ag detected with anti hbs antibody of 513 miu/ml. Lft normal....Scared....Lab error?

I'm hebs ag negative with a high anti hbs antibody from vaccination.  This week's test was reported as hebs ag detected with anti hbs antibody of 513 miu/ml. Lft normal....Scared....Lab error?

Yes: That sounds like lab error. Your hbsab would provide immunity; i'm assuming yoru hbcab (core) is negative; i wouldn't worry, talk to your doctor about a retest if you are concerned, but even if you were infected, there is no reason for treatment at this time. ...Read more

Cannot evaluate: Individual lab tests cannot be interpreted without all of the results and an understanding of the patient's medical history. I would recommend asking the doctor who ordered the test or considering a consult on HealthTap Prime, If you have the lab results and can upload them. Good luck. ...Read more

What would cause a high positive ANA (1:640) speckled, nucleolar with a low positive smooth muscle antibody (1:40) but negative SS-A, SS-B, anti-Smith, RNP, SCL-70, Anti Jo antibodies? Liver disease?

Probably normal: Many people have a positive ANA without being sick. If you also have elevated liver enzymes, a workup for autoimmune hepatitis may be continued, but if there's nothing to suggest a liver problem biochemically, I'd not be in a hurry to diagnose despite anti-smooth-muscle. ANA means nothing apart from the clinical picture. Best wishes. ...Read more

Elevated EBV ab VCA IgG <8 and EBV nucleaer antigen ab IgG test 4.2. & anti-dna(ss)igg ab qn ( 119)& c react protien(5.6) what are implications?

Elevated EBV ab VCA IgG <8 and EBV nucleaer antigen  ab IgG test 4.2. & anti-dna(ss)igg ab qn ( 119)& c react protien(5.6)  what are implications?

Nothing.: Ebv antibodies indicate you had a previous infection, but not active. The c-reactive protein needs a units indicator - that is either normal or somewhat elevated. The anti ss dna is extremely nonspecific and very rarely indicated; I have no idea why that was ordered, discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

Blood work results: "elevated rheumatoid factor & ccp c/w ra; elevated jo 1 (34h) & anti histone (1.2h) antibodies, mng" what should this mean to me?

See a rheumatologist: The rf and ccp would suggest RA strongly: the jo-1 can go along with polymyositis, but your rheumatologist would need to see if they thought you have that. ...Read more

Anti microsomal antibody is -191 and anti thyroglobulin antibody is-236.1 iu/ml what does it mean , suggest medicines?

Autoimmune: These antibody titers point to the presence of an autoimmune process which makes you at a higher risk of getting thyroid disease. Need to know what your thyroid function is and what kinds of symptoms you have before any suggestion on treatment can be made. Shouldn't you be talking to the doctor who ordered these tests? ...Read more

Blood work done by accident. No symptoms. High ANA and Anti Centromere antibody. What does this mean?

Blood work done by accident. No symptoms. High ANA and Anti Centromere antibody. What does this mean?

Potential autoimmune: ANA and Anti-Centromere antibodies are both signs of possible autoimmune conditions. ANA is non-specific and not unusual to see in healthy people; can be caused by medicines and infections. Anti-Centr. fairly specific for CREST syndrome: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CREST_syndrome If you have no symptoms of this may indicate a susceptibility. Take steps now to prevent getting it- see my comment: ...Read more

Not sure: I am not sure I understand the question. I suspect you are being evaluated for a blood clotting disorder and you have an elevated anticardiolipin IgG. One test however does not make the diagnosis of anti-phospholipid syndrome. ...Read more

Yes: You have severe anemia and this needs to be thoroughly evaluated. The elevated ESR also suggests the presence of chronic inflammation even though the CRP is unimpressive. ...Read more

Is this a lab error for Hepatitis B?: HBsAg(-), HBsAe(+), AntiHBc(+), AntiHBc IgM(-), AntiHBc IgG(-), AntiHBs(-). Repeated 3 more times with all (-)

Is this a lab error for Hepatitis B?: HBsAg(-), HBsAe(+), AntiHBc(+), AntiHBc IgM(-), AntiHBc IgG(-), AntiHBs(-). Repeated 3 more times with all (-)

False positive tests: With negative results on three more tests, almost certainly the positive results were false. This isn't necessarily a lab error, just a glitch in the biology of the test. That is, there probably is nothing the lab could have done to either cause or prevent it. In any case, you don't have hepatitis B. If potentially at risk, e.g. sexually active and not monogamous, get vaccinated. ...Read more

Sounds okay: Anti-hbs reactive means you have recovered from hepatitis b or been immunized. Hbsag-nonreactive means you do not have the hepatitis b virus in your blood. Anti-hcv non-reactive means you have not met / are not infected by the hepatitis c virus. ...Read more
