I have cardiolipin antibodies. What can I do in pregancy time?

Don't worry.: Many women have these antibodies and the vast majority have normal pregnancies each time. Only a small fraction of such women will have the dreaded antiphspholipid antibody syndrome (which consists of recurrent thromboses, pregnancy losses and lupus-like disease). If you are otherwise asymptomatic and just happened to be positive for this immunologic test, you need to stay calm and see an mfm doc.

If I test negative for anti cardiolipin antibodies once, does that mean I 100% don't have them or can it become positive?

No: There is no way to predict when a disease condition or lab result may change although there are risk factors which may increase your chance of getting a disease. The human body is not static and in fact is being modified by epigenetics and environmental exposure constantly even as we speak

Auto-antibodies: Anti-cardiolipin antibodes are seen in some patients with auto-immune disease and in patients with syphilis. Igm antibodies mean recent onset of antibody production and igg means antibody production going on for a while. For details see these sites. Http://www. Nhlbi. Nih.

Cardiolipin antibodies IgM and urine protein 72mg/l? Ana negative.

See details: The urine protein is within normal limits. How strongly positive is the igm cardiolipin. Only high levels of positivity have any clinical significance. Why were the tests ordered in the first place?

My results showed that I have antinuclear antibody on cardiolipin ab (igg). What are the implications?

Several conditions: Cross reactivity of antibodies against cardiolipin and dna, either double strands or single strand, is typically found in autoimmune diseases, such as systemic lupus erythematosus. However, these antibodies, sometimes, are also found in syphilis.

Can I still have lupus if my ANA and other antibodies are negative except the cardiolipin IgM and lupus coagulant! I have all the symptoms for lupus.

Can I still have lupus if my ANA and other antibodies are negative except the cardiolipin IgM and lupus coagulant! I have all the symptoms for lupus.

Yes, amongst other Dx: Anti-cardiolipin antibodies are antibodies often directed against cardiolipin & found in several diseases, including syphilis, antiphospholipid syndrome, livedoid vasculitis, vertebrobasilar insufficiency, Beh├žet's syndrome, idiopathic spontaneous abortion, ] and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).They are a form of anti-mitochondrial antibody.

Anticardiolipin antibodies--what are they and effects of pregnancy?

Anticardiolipin: There is a realtionship to higher amounts of miscarriages with this antibody. About 2% to 4% of the general population has antiphospholipid antibodies, and over half of those have primary anticardiolipin (an antiphospholipid) antibody syndrome. Antiphospholipid syndrome is a factor in about 15% of women who have recurrent miscarriages.

Safe topical antibiotics to be used on pubic area during pregnancy?

Safe topical antibiotics to be used on pubic area during pregnancy?

Need to know why: The choice of antibiotic is not only based on safety during pregnancy, but also what condition you are trying to treat. For example, an antibiotic may be safe, but completely ineffective against the bacteria causing the infection. If you need antibiotics, please see your doctor to ensure you are using the correct one.

This is my first pregnancy. I am rh- & positive for antibodies, What does this mean?

Which antibodies?: If you are Rh neg then you will receive a Rhogam injection at 28 weeks and post partum. You will need to find out which antibody you have and what the titers (levels) are. Some antibodies are not significant. Others are. The first step is determining which antibody you have. Then you can find out from your doctor if it is relevant in terms of pregnancy.
