All work in a contex: Everything has to be interpreted in a context. Most people get mono as child or young adult. The + tests may just indicate that you had been infected years ago. There are tests which distinguish long term from short lasting antibodies. As to the elevated eosinophils, they are usually elevated when the person has allergies. ...Read more

Hep c tested yesterday for routine matters. Came back + low levels detected possible false +. Did viral load and repeat hep c ab twice both neg. ?
Hep C testing: If your first test for Hep C was positive, then you had 2 negative tests- it's quite likely the first test was a 'false positive'. If you were infected, the antibody should be positive. PCR testing can be 'false positive' if there is a small amount of contamination when the lab test is run. Hopefully your doctor can take the time to explain - or you can upload the lab tests here for more review. ...Read more

Been tired/sick & was tested for Mono. Monospot came back positive, EBV came back negative. Can it take longer for EBV antibodies to show? Worried...
Mono not specific: Monospot is not specific for EBV infection and may be positive due to other viral infections. Even if it is mono, there is no specific treatment for it and you need to wait out for the symptoms to subside. If you are want to be sure, repeat the EBV antibody test in two weeks. Wish you good health! ...Read more
I had blood work done and protein 9.1 and albumin 5.5 could it be multiple myeloma. Cbc all came back within normal range. Immunoglobulin was 460. ?
Poly vs monoclonal: There are many causes of elevation of acute phase reactants and poly (many) clonal gammaglobulins (iga, igg, igm, etc). Polyclonal elevations are not the same as multiple myeloma (mm). Mm is cancer of plasma cells that produces a monoclonal (or sometimes oligoclonal or non-secretory) production of immunoglobulins. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Gallstones : If you have gallstones on ultrasound then your RUQ pain is most likely symptoms of your gallstones.

Thick blood , high inflammation levels abnormal liver function in all 3 blood tests, test back pos for blood clot on lung after dye test, back neg?
This is serious: I trust the dye test was a pulmonary angiogram that demonstrated a pulmonary thromboembolus, and it has also been determined that you have hypercoagulable blood. This is a major problem that will require work with your primary care physician and probably long-term medical management -- more than healthtap can do. Hope you do not smoke. The "inflammation" & liver labs need to be addressed in time. ...Read more

Hep b, HCV ab and HCV PCR all negative 2 years post exposure but elevated gpt, got, GGT recently, i just want to keep ruling out viral hepatitis, could i ?
Some ideas: Hopefully you've gotten immunized against hepatitis b, and hopefully you're not doing needle drugs to put you at risk for hepatitis c. You'd do well to have labs to look for hemochromatosis, wilson's, and autoimmune hepatitis. Many people have elevated liver enzymes that can be lowered just be getting more physically active. Glad you don't drink. Best wishes. ...Read more

Not to worry: Your body makes hep b surface antibody in response to the hepatitis b vaccine. It can also make it to the hepatitis b virus. If you've been vaccinated, it's more likely to be due to the first reason. If you're still concerned though, a test for hep b surface antigen and a liver function panel should clear things up. Most likely, they were checking your immunity status. ...Read more
Need more info: 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.
