Adnorm. Blood & cfs results: high: CSF protein-47, high cfs albumin-30.9; low total protein-5.7, low gamma globulin-.5, low IgG quantitative -621 worry?

Adnorm. Blood & cfs results: high: CSF protein-47, high cfs albumin-30.9; low total protein-5.7, low gamma globulin-.5, low IgG quantitative -621 worry?

CSF: Some experts consider CSF protein levels to be normal if the value is equal to or below your age in years. I don't think in your case there is a reason to worry. Other CSF components are important as well. Check with your physician to see if there is any reasons to worry. Hope you feel well soon. ...Read more

Oligoclonal bands and immunoglobulin synthesis rate may be checked in ms; viral and fungal cultures, lyme's titers for suspected infections; cell count, cytology and flow cytometry useful in many other disorders. Also, clear refers to transparency, color should be colorless. ...Read more

Does Guillain-Barre show up on somatosensory evoked potentials? Also - Is it Possible for one to have GBS with normal CSF protein and normal NCV/EMG?

Does Guillain-Barre show up on somatosensory evoked potentials? Also - Is it Possible for one to have GBS with normal CSF protein and normal NCV/EMG?

Unlikely: GBS causes ascending paralysis, usually due to inflammation of nerve roots. It is mostly a clinical diagnosis. You may consult this site for more information on this topic. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/guillain-barre-syndrome/basics/symptoms/CON-20025832 ...Read more
