My blood work came back with elevated ssa auto antibodies, high jo-1 autoantibodies and my complement total was high, what does this indicate?

My blood work came back with elevated ssa auto antibodies, high jo-1 autoantibodies and my complement total was high,  what does this indicate?

Need more info: You need tell why the tests were ordered in the first place. What symptoms do you have? Test results cannot be accurately interpreted in a vacuum as ssa and jo-1 antibodies can be positive in normal on occasion. In general elevated complements mean nothing, jo-1 can be positive in anti-synthetase syndrome (look it up) and ssa positive in sle or sjogren's. ...Read more

Blood work results: "elevated rheumatoid factor & ccp c/w ra; elevated jo 1 (34h) & anti histone (1.2h) antibodies, mng" what should this mean to me?

See a rheumatologist: The rf and ccp would suggest RA strongly: the jo-1 can go along with polymyositis, but your rheumatologist would need to see if they thought you have that. ...Read more

My blood test showed an elevated level of tg antibodies. Does that mean I have cancerous cells running around? Had papillary thyroid cancer a year ago

My blood test showed an elevated level of tg antibodies. Does that mean I have cancerous cells running around? Had papillary thyroid cancer a year ago

Not necessarily.: Having elevated tg antibodies primarily means that the more important tg test itself will be falsely lower than its true value. (no conversion formula exists.) if your tg antibodies are only 20 or so, with an undetectable tg level, it is hard to know what that means. If your tg antibodies are much higher, then concern for the presence of thyroid cancer would increase. ...Read more

Routine physical found elevated liver enzymes. Follow-up blood work showed lingering hepa antibodies. Ultrasound today, and i saw black spots on my liver - waiting for radiology report. Thoughts?

Family practice : I doubt hepatitis a caused a persistent elevation of your liver enzymes. The u/s is to look for gallbladder thickening and stones. Avoid alcohol if you drink. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is metabolized in the liver so avoid that. Wait for the u/s report. ...Read more

Heart beat: You may be noticing a forceful heart beat but with no cardiac disease or abnormality of the rate or rhythm in view of your negative or normal testing. Forceful heart beats can occur with anxiety, stress, alcohol,caffeine, high blood pressure, anemia or nicotine use. Also focussing too much on your heart beat aggravates the sensation. If you feel stressed, consider stress management therapy. ...Read more

Why doesn't ab+ blood produce antibodies?

Why doesn't ab+ blood produce antibodies?

Genetics: You're talking about blood group antigens; sugars on the outside of the red blood cells unique to those with certain blood types. Those who have sugars "A" and "B" should not develop antibodies to these sugars, or else such antibodies would "attack" their own red blood cells (triggering lysis). ...Read more

Tested positive by the Blood antibodies AChR 14yrs ago for MG. Is it possible to be "retested" & see if they've changed/lowered? Will it matter?

Discuss with Neuro: The antibody titer often returns to normal after lont-term suppressive therapy, however, I don't think this can predict whether a relapse will occur. I'm assuming that you are undergoing immunosuppressive therapy and are wondering if it can be tapered? Usually this is done without testing for the antibody. If symptoms recur, then therapy is resumed. ...Read more

Tune up your health a bit first, then call the red cross to set up a donation. ...Read more
