Crest Antinuclear Antibodies Tests
My serum test is negative for endomysial antibody iga, ttg tissue transglutasminase iga, gliadin antibody igg. But positive for gliadin antibody iga?
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?
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
Av test positive .Ra factor positive .Joint pain .Ccp antibody test negative.Raised esr.Plz diagnose my disease.
Cannot diagnose: Although these lab values are interesting, taken out of the context of your symptoms and findings on physical examination, plus further testing there is no way in which to diagnose over the internet. See a rheumatologist and get appropriately assessed. ...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
ANA positive SSA SSB weekly positive SCL weekly positive RNP SM weekly positive. Any implications? What are the differential diagnosis? WaDoes it mean
Pos auto ab tests: You are describing positive tests for auto antibodies. The differential diagnosis can be extensive. I am assuming a rheumatologist has ordered these tests? You need f/u with them to educate you what they mean, what further tests may need to be done and review your symptoms. Proper rheum DX is not based only on test results, but exam findings and symptoms of patient. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Testing for Viruses: Yes. Of course. But, it does matter the timing of the tests and the length of time since the possible infectious exposure. ...Read more
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

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
Sm/rnp antibody- ANA choice- positive, speckled/titer: 1:1280; sm & rnp (done alone) negative; sm/rnp antibody (together?) positive 3.0 guessing mctd?
Heads up: One of the things that's frustrating about these antibody tests looking for different connective tissue diseases is that they are difficult to do and are fraught with pitfalls. I suspect you've had at least one lab error to complicate your workup. Have you have a tube test for u1-rnp? Your clinical symptoms and signs actually tell more about your diagnosis ; best direction for treatment. ...Read more

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
How about it?: Up to a quarter of women your age have an ANA (immunofluorescent antibody) at a low titer like yours with a speckled pattern. If there's a question of whether you have lupus or one of its relatives, it's a piece of information to note and file for future reference. A negative ANA would rule several things out. Your result proves nothing positive. Best wishes. ...Read more
