What is gamma glutamyl test?

Liver enzyme: Gamma glutamyl transaminase / transpeptidase enzyme rises in some liver illnesses and supposedly is the first to rise in drinkers. It's a poor screen, some folks are born with lifelong high levels, but it's better than nothing. ...Read more

Do you recommend anyone who has a heart attack be given Eminase? Or is it more nuanced?

Do you recommend anyone who has a heart attack be given Eminase?  Or is it more nuanced?

Heart attack: The treatment of heart attack is more nuanced as you suggest. If possible we prefer to treat as soon as possible with catheter based interventional therapy. If getting the patient into the lab for that therapy within 90min of pain onset isn't possible we consider thrombolytic therapy very seriously. ...Read more

What could increased creatine kinase and aldolase levels indicate?

What could increased creatine kinase and aldolase levels indicate?

Likely muscle injury: Creatine kinase and aldolase would both be elevated after a muscle injury. Ck can also be elevated in kidney failure. Adolase can be sub-classified into a, b and c which helps differentiate from which tissue the high levels came. ...Read more

Can autoantibodies against glutamine synthetase and/or glutamate dehydrogenase cause glutamate metabolism disorders?

Can autoantibodies against glutamine synthetase and/or glutamate dehydrogenase cause glutamate metabolism disorders?

Still searching: Glutamine synthase is part of the glutamine synthetase family. Ammonia incorporation in animals occurs through the actions of glutamate dehydrogenase and glutamine synthase. Glutamate plays the central role in mammalian nitrogen flow, serving as both a nitrogen donor and nitrogen acceptor. I am unble to find references in my search so far as to autoantibodies to these but see comment. ...Read more

What could cause an elevated creatine kinase test?

Muscle injury: Creatinine kinase is released from injured or dead muscle cells, be those skeletal, cardiac of smooth muscle cells. Renal failure is also associtated with modestly elevated levels. ...Read more

What is acid phosphatase assays test?

What is acid phosphatase assays test?

Max 3.2 ng: Sensitivity of prostatic acid phosphatase is very low 39% of the prostatic carcinomas acid phosphatase level was below the upper limit of normal fixed at 3.2ng. Specificity is high t 96% of cases with abnormally high ri acid phosphatase levels, the diagnosis was adenocarcinoma. In the absence of bone metastases high acid phosphatase level is predictive of lymph node involvement in 90%. ...Read more

My serum test is negative for endomysial antibody  iga, ttg tissue transglutasminase iga, gliadin antibody igg. But positive for gliadin  antibody iga?

Treat the person: Lab tests mean nothing in isolation, and have many false positives and false negatives. The decision to make a trial of a gluten-free diet will be between you and your gastroenterologist or dermatologist based on the big picture. ...Read more

What would high "PBG Deaminase" mean?

Nothing: Porphobilinogen deaminase is worrisome if it's low. I'm glad you were screened for this, and I trust you were for the other porphyrias that can cause anxiety as well. ...Read more

Describe polyclonal and monoclonal antibody production?

Describe polyclonal and monoclonal antibody production?

Cells vs, animals: A monoclonal antibody is produced by in-vitro manipulation by expoanding a single cell making a desired antibody. Polyclonal antibodies are usually derived from immunizing an animal and colletcting its blood/serum containing the antibody. Polyclonal antibodies are a mixture of a large number of different cells. ...Read more

Would troponin, Creatine kinase and/or CK-MB be elevated with myocarditis and pericarditis?

Would troponin, Creatine kinase and/or CK-MB be elevated with myocarditis and pericarditis?

Yes: The level of rise would depend on the amount of damage to the myocardial cells. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

M spike in.Urinie protine alpha 2?

An M spike in either: The urine or the serum reflects the production of a single (monoclonal) globulin. It is found in multiple myeloma, a malignancy of the plasma cells that make antibody, and also can be found in so-called monoclonal gammopathy of unclear significance (mgus) which is generally benign. ...Read more

Is creatine Kinase typically elevated in ALS patients?

Is creatine Kinase typically elevated in ALS patients?

Below: Serum creatine kinase (CK) levels were recorded in 100 patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). CK concentrations were elevated in 43% of the patients, with a mean level of 240 U/liter and a range of 59-1,327 U/liter (male normal less than 95 U/liter, female normal less than 59 U/liter). All patients with elevated CK had muscle weakness. Seven patients were initially misdiagnosed as hav ...Read more
