Ana titer with reflex to ifa of 1:320 and neg for antibody tests what does that mean? Pattern was speckled and homogeneos
My teen had ANA test but now dr is saying we need a "reflex titer" blood test. What is it and does that mean ANA positive?
Suggestive of auto-: Immune disorder. A high concentration of anti-nuclear antibody is one indicator or auto-immune disease. Titer is one expression for concentration of a particular antibody.

Had HSV DNA PCR test with CSF? Negative. Also had HSV 1/2 antibody (IgM), IFA with reflex to Titer, CSF. Negative. Can I still have HSV 1 or 2?
No HSV in CNS: With these tests, you're obviously under a doctor's care, maybe including an infectious diseases specialist or neurologist. They can answer these questions best. But these results effectively rule out HSV infection of your central nervous system. Something else is causing the problem. That said, the HSV IgM test is notoriously unreliable. You probably also had an IgG test, probably negative. ...Read more
Is it possible to have flat abs? I think I could be getting fat.I'm 5'5 1/2 & 119 lbs! Even w/exersices, I've gained this year. How 2 lose & get flat?
You are not fat: Your BMI, (body mass index),is well within normal limits. If you are exercising you are building muscle, muscle weighs more than fat. Keep exercising, eat heathy, and try not to worry about the number on the scale. Remember also that those pictures you see in magazines are airbrushed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My stomach is flat w/ abs. When i eat/drink my stomach will bloat, makes me look preg. What is the cause? Should I use dual clense if its my colon?
My dr did not explain any of this, means viral infection? Wbc10.7, rbc5.11, neut 87%, lymph7%, neut abs 9.4, lymph abs .8, all others norm. Mailed w/o explanations, just curious if normal. Mono neg.
Should be followed: I suspect you've met up with a virus or some other stressor. These may just be common, chaotic fluctuations in the counts of lymphs and neuts. Your physician will decide when to repeat the cbc; if you have no symptoms, your next annual office visit might be okay. If the low lymphocytes persist, a check for HIV would be in order. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
