I'm hebs ag negative with a high anti hbs antibody from vaccination. This week's test was reported as hebs ag detected with anti hbs antibody of 513 miu/ml. Lft normal....Scared....Lab error?
Yes: That sounds like lab error. Your hbsab would provide immunity; i'm assuming yoru hbcab (core) is negative; i wouldn't worry, talk to your doctor about a retest if you are concerned, but even if you were infected, there is no reason for treatment at this time. ...Read more
More info on serum immunofixation..no monoclonal proteins detected.a faint IgG labda cannot be ruled out.suggest repeat 6 mths.igg 841 IgA 251 IgM 44.
Correct advice: It is prudent to retest in about six months to see which way the low level monoclonal spike is going. It may disappear, stay unchanged or increase in amount. The next step will depend on the direction of the quantity of the protein. Your immunoglobulin levels are normal. There is no need to worry. ...Read more

Antistreptolysin o ab and lft 's high with h/o strep. 1+protein in ua ? Glomerulonephritis, etc. What to do next?
Strep side effects: This can simply be a side effect of the strep infection and the severity prior to treatment. With the kidney issues, it might be a good idea to meet with a nephrologist.

Elevated EBV ab VCA IgG <8 and EBV nucleaer antigen ab IgG test 4.2. & anti-dna(ss)igg ab qn ( 119)& c react protien(5.6) what are implications?
Nothing.: Ebv antibodies indicate you had a previous infection, but not active. The c-reactive protein needs a units indicator - that is either normal or somewhat elevated. The anti ss dna is extremely nonspecific and very rarely indicated; I have no idea why that was ordered, discuss with your doctor. ...Read more
On ceruplasmin test hep A AB Total reactive ref range U mean? Also Hep A AB (IGM) nonreactive ref range U mean? What am I testing positive for?
Lab tests: You do not give a value for the ceruloplasm. If you have antibodies to Hepatitis A virus and the IgG is positive and the IgM negative it suggests that you were immunized for hepatitis A or had infection in the past. Why not discuss these values with the doctor who ordered them? ...Read more

Rheumatoid arthritis: Your tests are strongly suggesting rheumatoid arthritis.

Talk to your doctor about the results and the benefits of a rheumatology consult. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
