Anti Smooth Muscle Antibody Titer
Impossible to say: Many pregnancies in women at age 35, as many as 30% to 50% can be lost due to miscarriage in the first 8-12 weeks. The question is did you ever have fetal heart tones detected on ultrasound? Many early pregnancy losses result from lethal mutations in the embryo. Often development seen by US is inconsistent with dates and heart activity is not seen. Talk w/ your OB re: their opinion of future plans ...Read more
Smooth muscle is an involuntary non-striated muscle. It is divided into two sub-groups; the single-unit (unitary) and multiunit smooth muscle. Smooth muscle is found within the walls of blood vessels. Smooth muscle is also found in lymphatic vessels, the urinary bladder, uterus, male and female reproductive tracts, gastrointestinal tract, respiratory tract, arrector pili of ...Read more
IgM or IgG anti stre: In general antibody titers are (blood or saliva or wherever the sample is)tests that measure the immunoglobulines associated to certain diseases (in this case streptococal)that indicate whether the body has developed defenses against. Igm elevated means a "recent" infection, IgG elevation means old or previous exposure. ...Read more
My gf has hbv we make our I got 3 shots when I was a baby my antibody titer it's says I'm immune 70mml should I test antigen.? And when after exposure
No risk, immune: This duplicates another question. You are immune to HBV, should not have any more testing, and need not worry about any exposures to your girlfriend or anyone else. ...Read more
To check immunity: Antibodies are proteins involved in immune reactions. An antibody titer measures how much of these proteins have been made against a particular substance. For example: to see if you've had recent exposure to an organism like mono; to ensure you are protected against infections like strep; to ensure you have responded to a vaccine; to check for an autoimmune condition; to type blood for transfusion. ...Read more
How likely would you catch hep b if you are fully immune with good antibody titer it's been 90day is it good time to test exposure saliva kissing only?
Immune if HepBsAb+: If your titer of protective antibodies is therapeutic, then risk of infection is low, although sometimes a booster is warranted. Check with your doc. ...Read more
My girlfriend has hbv chronic and she is on meds I got 3 shots and my antibody titer said I'm immune 60Ui/ml should i be worried we wanna have sex?
Deciphering a thyroid hormone test result: is an antithyroglobulin antibody titer of 1:50 too high, or is it alright?
It depends: Antithyroglobulin antibody is not a thyroid hormone test. It tells you nothing about the function of your thyroid. It can indicate that you have autoimmune thyroid disease, but your level is not very high. Mild elevations are non-specific and occur more commonly in the population as we get older. Thyroid function is indicated by t4, tsh, and T3 (liothyronine) levels. ...Read more

What is a smooth muscle ab blood test and a titer test for, and what does it mean if they're positive?
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
Yes: It is standard practice to test both rubella and HIV antibodies early in pregnancy. Typically, one also gets an antigen test for hepatitis b, and a test for syphilis (sometimes an antibody test, and other times a different test is used). Additional tests such as a complete blood count, blood type, rh typing, urinalysis are standard as well. See your ob; they'll do the right tests. ...Read more
Depends on the lab: If you get lucky and have your blood drawn on the day that the batched blood draws are run you could get your results back in 24-48 hours. Always assume one week in the worst case scenario. ...Read more
How long: It depends on what test you are wiating for. Most take just a few days but if sent off to the state or a reference lab, it could take longer. ...Read more
Yes, however: The best way to find out is to call your doctor and ask. If you have had a regular immunization schedule, you should be immune. The CDC has recently changed guidelines for immunization with MMR due to resurgence of the disease due to a significant number of unvaccinated persons in the US population. You can review those guidelines by going to www.CDC.gov. ...Read more
Why is there a need for immunohistochemistry: smooth muscle actin after I got the diagnosis: cellular spindle cell lesion favor nodular fascitis?
To help diagnosis: Pathologists often use immunohistochemistry to help in arriving at a diagnosis. For softn tissue tumors immunohistochemistry can help better characterize the type of tumor... For example if is smooth muscle derived or a neural tumor etc. In terms of nodular fasciitis, it can morphologically appear similar to some smooth muscle tumors and some other fibroblastic tumors so ihc may be used. ...Read more
1. What percentage of the time does cidp or gb present without significant associated muscle weakness.
2. How can cidp or gb effect smooth muscle.?
See below: Commonly gbs starts with numbness and tingling that is bilateral and starting at the toes (variants of the disease differ in symptoms). Weakness has to be present for it to be gbs. Cidp is less predictable: weakness may not be present for a couple years. In these diseases peripheral nerves are stripped of myelin (the coating that allows for nerve transmission). Smooth muscle is not affected. ...Read more

Why nitrate drugs only use for vescle smooth muscle? And they do not use for other human's body smooth muscle such as geastrointestinal?
GI: Nitrates do have some use in preventing or reducing esophogeal spasm. ...Read more
No: Concerta is methylphenidate, exactly the same molecule as ritalin. Concerta is formulated to be released into your bloodstream slowly so it lasts for 6 to 8 hours with a steady blood level, whereas Ritalin is absorbed rapidly and your blood level rises to a peak in about two hours and then declines, and is active for a total of about 4 hours. Same medication — same effects. ...Read more
I have mctd (+ana, rnp). Recent test when I was unwell + anti ro, sm/rnp, anti smooth muscle, antichromatin-low titres of most. What does all this mean? Is my disease progressive? I am terrified.
Dietary modification: Consult a comlementary dietitian or md to modify this. Very little remedy in western medicine. ...Read more
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more
