Electrophoresis Protein And Total Protein Csf
I am told my Glomerular filtration Rate is 57.6. Does this indicate Kidney disease? Creatinine is 1.0 BUN is 20 total Protein is 7.0 I am 55 w/f
GFR: Your Estimated filtration rate is borderline. This is not a problem itself. The important concern is whether disease exists that might be progressive. Serum creatinine of 1.0 is "normal". So is serum creatinine 1.1. However, creatinine relates to muscle mass. If you are small muscled as a. 55 yo woman, then creatinine of 1.1 or 1.0 may indicate some minor impairment in its excretion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In CSF Volume=2.5mL
Is it GBS ?
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
Bone marrow disorder: It means that you are making too much of a single antibody or just a part of an antibody because one clone of plasma cells from your bone marrow has developed over the normal population. This can be a benign condition for many years or progress into a condition called multiple myeloma that needs treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Nothing Particular: It is one of those changes which has no clear cut medical implications. You can ignore it and you would not have to think about it or anything serious that I can medically relate it to. Good like ...Read more
Inflammation: Serum protein electrophoresis is a test that examines specific proteins in the blood, serum Albumin and alpha-1, alpha-2, beta, and gamma globulins. In the alpha-1 zone, alpha-1 antitrypsin (aat) is the major protein, which is involved in neutralizing enzymes secreted by inflammatory cells. Aat is increased in acute inflammation. ...Read more
Need more info: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, What is total gamma globulin level? If it is more than 2.0 gm/dL it needs to be evaluated. There are many causes of polyclonal gammopathy., and some of those are serious. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Doesn't immunofixation test for the same things as protein electrophoresis and even more than protein electrophoresis?
It is not same test: Serum protein electrophoresis(spe) is a screening test for myeloma and other paraproteinemias it simple shows the abnormal(m) protein peak. Immunofixation is the next best test which provides a lot more additional information like the type of immunoglobulin which is causing the m spike and it will also tell us more useful info about further quantitation of the m peak and subtyping of your disease. ...Read more
No worries: This is of no consequence. I would ignore it. ...Read more
