Antiphospholipid Antibody Panel
My serum test is negative for endomysial antibody iga, ttg tissue transglutasminase iga, gliadin antibody igg. But positive for gliadin antibody iga?
Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is a disorder of blood coagulation related to the presence of autoantibodies called lupus anticoagulant and anticardiolipin. APS can cause blood clots, which most often occur in the deep veins of the legs, a condition called deep vein thrombosis. Blood clots can increase the risk for stroke and pulmonary embolism (clots in the lungs). Patients with APS are also at high risk for pregnancy complications, including miscarriage ...Read more
Antiphospholipid Ab: Antiphospholipid syndrome is a disorder in which your immune system mistakenly produces antibodies against certain normal proteins in your blood. Antiphospholipid syndrome can cause blood clots to form within your arteries or veins as well as pregnancy complications, such as miscarriages and stillbirths. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Celiac disease? Biopsy needed?Endomysial AB IGA Negative,Gliadin AB IGA High=16, Anti-Gliadin IGG A B High=22, t-transglutanimaze IGG Normal 1.7, t-transglutanimaze igA Normal 3.1, IGA Normal 186
Blood tests showed high antibodies to: ana, ssdna, sm, rnp/sm, ssa(ro), ssb(la), scl-70, centromere. Is this likely lupus or a different automimmune?
Prob false positive: To have all these antibodies to be positive is suggestive of a false positive result. Virus infection can cause similiar findings. Ultimately these results have to be interpretted in the context of your doctor's findings. Talk to your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When testing for Antiphospolipid Antibody Syndrome, does taking baby aspirin affect the Lupus Anticoagulant (PTT-LA, dRVVT) test results?
Miscarriage: Apa, along with lupus anti-coagulant antibody, are two antibodies that attack the areas in the cell wall of growing tissue, especially the fast-growing placental tissue of an early pregnancy. These are newly-discovered causes for recurrent miscarriage, but also place the patient at higher risk for developing a blood clot, especially with hormone use, later in life. ...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
4/5 results- test neg scl70, double stranded dna, ssa, ssb, smith rmp sederate, esr&crp norm, electrolyte/white/red blood norm.Again + ANA 1:160 centromer. What additional test to exclude scleroderma/crest?
Negative result for thyroid peroxidase antibodies tpoab . Necessary to test my thyroglobulin antibodies tgab ?
Anti-thyroglobulin: Studies have shown that 99% of patients with hashimoto's thyroiditis have anti-microsomal antibodies, whereas only about 1/3rd had anti-thyroglobulin antibodies. In addition, 10-20% of persons without thyroid problems have anti-throglobulin antibodies (tg-a). These persons are likely at higher risk for future problems and should be watched more closely however, testing for tg-a is not necessary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ebv capsid ab IgG 1:580. Positive ccp antibody igg, sed rate, high RDW and mpv on cbc.Liiver alt, AST elevated. Any ideas?
Ebv panel. Ebv nuc antigen igg=157, early ag igg=12.7, EBV VCA igg=112, EBV VCA igm=10.6. Please explain. Concerned about spleen. Symp=fatigue/fog?
? Active infection: It's impossible for me to answer with certainty since i don't know the normal ranges your lab uses. If early ag & vca igm are elevated above normal this indicates active ebv infection.I don't know if it is acute or chronic without knowing your history. If chronic i see that as a sign of poor immune function.Immune-boosting herbs/supplements & IV vit c drips may help, but find why immunity is poor. ...Read more
Hiv, cbp, esr, fbs, rheumatoid factor, c reactive protein, anti nuclear antibodies these blood test can be done during menses.
Blood tests: Yes. Of course.Get a more detailed answer ›
Connective Tissue Dx: With a positive ana, you must now characterize it. The positive anticardiolipin abs need to quatified for the 3 types: igg, igm, and iga. The ones that are likely to cause thrombotic issues are in order: igm, igg, and iga. You need a rheumatologic or immunologic evaluation. ...Read more
