Hepatitis A Abs Total
Hepatitis Lab test: By itself, the total antibody test tells only part of the story. Reactive basically means positive. If you were vaccinated for Hep A, the total Ab will be reactive, so that is good. If you were ever exposed to Hep A, it will also be reactive. You need the IgM and symptoms to see if it's a recent infection. IgG indicates prior infection and helps you resist a new infection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hb core ab-igm non reactive hepatitis b core ab total reactive and hep b surface antigen non reactive what does this mean?
On ceruplasmin test hep A AB Total reactive ref range U mean? Also Hep A AB (IGM) nonreactive ref range U mean? What am I testing positive for?
Lab tests: You do not give a value for the ceruloplasm. If you have antibodies to Hepatitis A virus and the IgG is positive and the IgM negative it suggests that you were immunized for hepatitis A or had infection in the past. Why not discuss these values with the doctor who ordered them? ...Read more
Doubtful: but would repeat titres when you are well just to be sure ...Read more
Uncertain: The total hep A AB measures both the IgM that is elevated around the time of infection, and the IgG that is elevated for the rest of your life starting several weeks after your exposure to the virus. To really get useful information, you have to separate the IgG and the IgM. It may be possible to do that on the blood sample the lab already has, without getting blood drawn again. ...Read more
My ALT is 76; AST 54. I tested positive for high ANA but neg for hepatitis, mono or epst. Bar virus. Ct scan of abdomen normal. Next steps?
High ANA titer: Anti nuclear antibodies high titer means you may have an auto immune disease and you need to have further testing to find the cause.Presence of ANA is indicative of lupus erythematosus present in 80to90% of cases, but it also occurs in other auto immune disaese such as auto immune hepatitis, sjogren syndrome, scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis, polymyositis and&dermatomyosits, addison disease and others. ...Read more
If my titer level to the hep b surface antibody comes back low (less than 5), should I get a booster or repeat the hep b series (3 shots)?
Not necessary: Hepatitis B boosters or revaccination usually is not considered necessary. Even if HBsAb declines to undetectable levels, protection appears to be complete and probably life long. That said, another dose is harmless, and some experts recommend it in some circumstances. But almost certainly you do not need more than a single booster infection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Help, m, 57 in suspense, qualitative HCV PCR result after three days, hep c antibody at 14 (cut off of 1). Alt, serum albumin, protein, CBC all normal.
Result?: Your scenario reminds us that even if an hcv antibody test is positive, it is mandatory to check hcv RNA (viral load) to see if someone actually has active infection. About 25% of people will have spontaneously cleared infection soon after being exposed (and many people were exposed and cleared 20 - 30 years ago). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

HSV 1 IGG TYPE SPECIFIC AB >5

HEPATITIS A AB, REACTIVE
Cannot evaluate: Individual lab tests cannot be interpreted without all of the results and an understanding of the patient's medical history. I would recommend asking the doctor who ordered the test or considering a consult on HealthTap Prime, If you have the lab results and can upload them. Good luck. ...Read more
I have itp and labs just came back total protein 77g/l albumin 51 other protein good but illdefined faint band IgM kappa found is this mgus for sure?
Further eval: Further eval will be needed- that may include further blood work, imaging study, bone marrow biopsy- to really evaluate the condition- rule out lymphoproliferative disorder vs plasma cell problem . Nothing is sure at this time. Discuss further with your hematologist.Need to make sure that the low platelet is completely separate problem and has nothing to do with the igm kappa. ...Read more
