Need more info: All lab 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, your lab results are consistent with inflammation that may be due to allergy. ...Read more

Ca125 (Definition)

Ca-125 (cancer antigen 125 or carbohydrate antigen 125) is a biomarker/tumor marker for ovarian cancer (etc); however, it is not sensitive or specific enough to use as a screening test. Also, a uk study showed that treating based on ca125 level did not improve outcomes. "125" comes from the 125th attempt to develop a marker. It was introduced by bast ...Read more

Crp was elevated now normal and sed rate is a little high. What is the difference?

Crp  was elevated now normal and sed rate is a little high. What is the difference?

Inflammation : Both ESR and CRP reflect an inflammatory state. They need to be interpreted in the context of the clinical picture. At any rate, without knowing too much about you, i can say that it is a very good sign that your ESR normalized. A slight elevation of the sedimentation rate is nonspecific and may be meaningless. ...Read more

My blood test recently showed I have a slightly elevated sed rate? All other tests came back normal. What now ?

My blood test recently showed I have a slightly elevated sed rate? All other tests came back normal. What now ?

ESR: Slightly elevated sedimentation rate on it's own is not a good indicator of anything specific. If there are symptoms or illness or recent illness, it may just indicate that it's resolving. Esr on it's own cannot be used to screen patients for diseases. ...Read more

My ANA is positive speckled 1:640 it was 1:160 in july. Sed rate is elevated. What does that mean for the ana? How bad is that?

My ANA is positive speckled 1:640 it was 1:160 in july. Sed rate is elevated. What does that mean for the ana? How bad is that?

Non-specific: In the absence of symptomatic expression of disease, titer and pattern of the ANA test, with the minimally (if at all) elevated ESR would suggest only that there is some non-specific source of inflammation and this could be nearly anything. Best thing to do is to have an astute pcp or a rheumatologist see you and order the appropriate diagnostic tests if they feel they are clinically warranted. ...Read more

If my sed rate and CPK are mildly elevated should I be concerned? And what could be some reasons for the elevation? I also have a low iron count

Inflammation: Usually a mildly elevated CPK and sed rate are hallmarks of inflammation somewhere in the body. Chronic inflammation can also make you prone to being anemic, so get that checked out with some common blood tests. ...Read more
