Erosive gastritis. h.pylori blood test positive, breath test positive, stool antigen test negative, biopsy negative. what to do ?
Treat it: The positive H. pylori antibody test is not a reliable indicator of current infection. The gold standard for H. pylori treatment is the gastric biopsy, and this is negative in this patient. However, I am impressed by the positive breath test and erosive gastritis. I would have expected stool antigen to be positive, as it mirrors the breath test. Given the discrepant results, treat the patient. ...Read more

Tb skin test negative, quentform TB test negative, bone marrow biopsy results indicative of TB (reacts to ziehl niehlssen), PCR negative. How come?
No...actually: The zn stain is a broad stain for acid fast bacilli of which mycobacterium tuberculosis is one of many. The specific tests like quantiferon or the pcr test are against you having tb. The culture is the "gold standard" but you will need to wait for it. It might turn out be a cousin of TB and that too will grow out of culture. Stay on TB meds until they are certain of the AFB positive organism. ...Read more
How long are specimens good for additional reliable testing? Doctor ordered chlamydia/gc test and 6days later ordered a trich test using same specimen
Preservatives: The lab doing the testing would let your dr. Know if the specimen was outdated. Often, preservatives can be introduced in the specimen as well, making it viable for future testing. If the lab did not have a problem with adding the test, than all is fine. ...Read more
Urine cytology test showed benign urothelial cells negative for malignancy, some red blood cells. Blood test-increase in neutrophils. Sould i worry?
Urine Cytology: If the urine cytology provided a good sample, you needn't worry about a bladder tumor. The increased white cell count( coupled with the red cells in the urine) could signify a bladder infection or inflammatory process, but without further history, it is difficult to pinpoint. A simple urinalysis may help clarify whether you have a bladder infection or not. An increased WBC is entirely non-specific. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
+ gonorrhoeae DNA amplification test, but, neg. Amp RNA test(source urine). Do they have gonorrhoeae? Is one test more reliable?
Complicated: Although these tests are very sensitive there are false positive results because of the potential presence of other benign species of neisseria. If you had to compare the two it would be without much relevant data. Bacterial culture will provide both a definitive diagnosis and allow determination of antibiotic sensitivities. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hiv expo 59 days, 23 day rna+combo test neg, gave blood for more test inclu HIV genotype. From urine test - abnormal protein.
1) why my doc asked geno test with neg result
2 abno protein means? Help
More info needed: Your HIV test results are nearly conclusive you don't have it. Otherwise, I can't help much. Ask your doctor directly. I don't understand requesting HIV genotype except in someone with confirmed infection; the test can't even be done unless RNA or DNA positive for HIV. Maybe you misunderstood? There are many causes of "abnormal" urine protein and HIV isn't one of them as far as I know. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Cytoplasmic fluorescence on ANA test in pattern of liver disease, further bloods negative, do I need liver biopsy? Or repeat tests later on?
Doubt it: Cytoplasmic fluorescence usually means nothing. If your physician is not worried, i would not be either. Your physician may order a tube test for anti-ro/ssa, etc., if these relate to the present concern. The workup of elevated liver enzymes / transaminases is too difficult to explain in 400 words -- glad you're taking a proactive approach in any case. ...Read more

Besides, gear up constant practice of healthy lifestyle without overindulgence & obsession as the foundation of long-term care... ...Read more
