Doctor insights on:
High Isulin Antibodies
Means nothing alone: Please forgive my frankness. This mishmash of lab results is meaningless apart from your history and physical exam. Reference ranges for labs are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. If you feel well, ignore them. The high hs-CRP may be a heads-up that you've got more atherosclerosis than you think. If you feel well, ignore the rest. ...Read more
Need values: All laboratory 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, it would have helped to know the actual values. It would be prudent to consult your doctor to rule out pre-diabetes or diabetes. ...Read more
Why high testosterone, low tsh, high cholesterol, weight gain, high triglycerides, irritable, aggressive, sleeplessness, high serum calcium?
Multiple problems: You has a whole host of problems. First of all, you need to see your physician (p) to deal with your abnormal labs. I will address only a few of them due to space limitations. One of the causes of your high calcium is that you are on calcium, please stop it. You weight gain could be due to your high tsh. Speak to the p who ordered the blood tests that disclosed your problems for answers. ...Read more
Adnorm. Blood & cfs results: high: CSF protein-47, high cfs albumin-30.9; low total protein-5.7, low gamma globulin-.5, low IgG quantitative -621 worry?
CSF: Some experts consider CSF protein levels to be normal if the value is equal to or below your age in years. I don't think in your case there is a reason to worry. Other CSF components are important as well. Check with your physician to see if there is any reasons to worry. Hope you feel well soon. ...Read more
Candida antibody IgM high 1.2. Candida antibody IgG high 1.9. Candida antibody IgA high 1.5. What does this mean? Yeast overgrowth?
It can: It certainly can. You need to have other values such as tsh, t4, free T3 (liothyronine) and thyroid binding globulin to fully assess. Also, if you're symptomatic in some way, this factors in as well. Please discuss fully with the physician who ordered the test! good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Increased aldolase, complement c3/c4 serum, sed rate, c-react. Protein, beta globulin, monocytes, bun/creatin low mcv-mch, vit d-possible causes?
Complicated: When i was doing clinical medicine, these were collectively sort of the flags for sarcoid disease but I am not saying that's the case here. This is because sarcoid is a diagnosis of exclusion so the advice is to rule out other diseases with additional diagnostic tests which can be done by a primary care physician or rheumatologist. ...Read more
High WBC, high Neut, low lymph, low K, high glucose, lowRBC, low creatine, high amylase, high AST, urine w/ protein & ketones. Treatment?
Based on the: above lab results, and without any clinical knowledge of patient symptoms and course of disease, I would have to say it's impossible to devise a plan of treatment. Please visit your healthcare provider or begin a Virtual Consult with one of our physicians to discuss diagnostic and treatment options. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more
My bl sugar level drops to 50 3 h after eating,normal insulin, c-peptide, liver enzymes' levels,family history of diabetes,is it reactive hypoglycemia?
Reactive hypoglycemi: yes. It is. Whenever you eat ready sugars or simple sugars( made with table sugar, juices) your body releases lots of insulin . Your sugars get absorbed mostly from stmach and there is still insulin in the blood that continue to lower your sugar.you should avoid ready sugars and take more complex carbs. Along with proteins. You most likely will be developing diabetes in near future. So watch !! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi: What is significance of high IGM, (twice top reference range level), very high IGE, with low IGG, low IGG subclasses, and low IGA? Thanks much!
More info needed: The question asked can be intreperted in many ways. Normally these are levels in relation to a disease. A high IGM means recent infection, a high IGE means something allergic is bothering you and low IGG means less memory antibodies for an old infection. Low IGA is antibody for your gut/intestines. Hopefully this helps. See your doctor for more answers. ...Read more
Ebv capsid ab IgG 1:580. Positive ccp antibody igg, sed rate, high RDW and mpv on cbc.Liiver alt, AST elevated. Any ideas?
Is elevated kappa/lambda ratio on serum FLC test inherently monoclonal, even if neither kappa or lambda is elevated? Ratio high b/c lambda is low, not because of high kappa. SPEP/UPEP & IFE normal. High IgA, low IgG. Clean marrow biopsy. Polyclonal?
Clinical context : The use of light chains is limited in diseases other than monoclonal gammopathies, such as myeloma or amyloidosis. If this is the context that yours got checked the results do not suggest such a condition. With no gammopathy suggested by results the question regarding clonality has no grounds. As any other test, trending the results would help in integrating it in a meaningful clinical context. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What might cause hyperthyroid, high anti-centromere b antibodies, enlarged red blood cells and high iron saturation, normal serum iron, low TIBC/UIBC?
THIS IS A "LONGSHOT": but this set of symptoms (SYNDROME) sound like HASHIMOTO's THYROIDITIS and PERNICIOUS Macrocytic anemia also may be AUTO-IMMUNE!!! in nature ie: the body falsely detects NORMAL TISSUE as being "FOREIGN" and develops auto-antibodies against (in this case) your thyroid gland and your bone marrow) This is a guess....just a "thought"..hope it helps!

Glucose serum112 mg/dL,T3 (liothyronine) free 2.5 pg/ml,T4 free 1.14 ng/dl,TSH 2.180 uIU/ml-blood test taken PM-no fasting/no meds told have hypothyroidism-confused?
Taking thyroid med?: Hi. Those thyroid function tests are normal. If you're not taking thyroid hormone, then you're not hypothyroid. I'm sorry for the confusion; no one should have told you you're hypothyroid based on those labs. I would advise against taking desiccated porcine thyroid (Armour). See an endocrinologist if you want expert opinion on thyroid issues; many excellent ones in your area. Your thyroid's normal ...Read more
Non-fasted insulin 59 when b/s is 86, and in the 18 when b/s 68, 12 when b/s Is 53. High enough to suggest insulinoma? Or congenital hyperinsulintima
Hypoglycemia: Insulinoma is extremely rare, but usually not a hard diagnosis to make once it is suspected. The blood sugar and insulin levels must be done fasting. Post prandial testing and glucose tolerance tests are worthless in making this diagnosis. You should see an endocrinologist. ...Read more
Insulin resistance.: High blood sugar will cause Insulin levels to rise, but i suspect you are referring to Insulin resistance. This is a phenomena in which your muscle cells have reduced sensitivity to insulin. This results in higher blood levels of Insulin for any given level of blood sugar as compared to those without Insulin resistance. ...Read more
Gestational diabetes: If you have gestational diabetes, the high glucose levels in your blood makes the unborn baby respond by increasing his own Insulin in order to keep the glucose at bay. Once the baby is born, and he is not in that "high sugar" environment, his insulin, being high before birth may make his own glucose drop. Nurseries are well equiped to deal with this. ...Read more
Think 'Big picture': If you've been prescribed antibiotics- that means your body needs help overcoming some type of infection. Getting high or getting intoxicated will NOT help the situation. In addition, there can be both short term (i.e. death) and long term (i.e. death) effects from abusing drugs and alcohol. Hopefully you can think about the important things in life like your family, etc and get back on track. ...Read more
Not fasting: Most common reason for high insulin is a non-fasting state. If one is fasting at time of blood draw, then high insulin is worrisome for insulin resistant state or pre-diabetes. In this case, A1c might be useful to further assess glycemic (sugar) control. Assuming good kidney function, metformin would be useful in treating those w/insulin resistance. Should also check blood pressure & cholesterol 2 ...Read more
Nothing: The level doesn't matter. You are immune to herpes 6 from previous infection. There are rumors that the levels are higher in people with multiple sclerosis than in controls, but this is research-only and not a helpful test or 'one more thing for you to worry about.' some independent thinkers talk of this in relationship to chronic fatigue syndrome; i doubt a strong link here. ...Read more
Sounds like type 2: Type 1 is caused by lack of Insulin and a high Insulin would be related to its treatment with insulin. In type 2 there is Insulin resistance and the pancreas is "told" to produce more of the hormone to "try to overcme the resistance". It is the major way in which types i and 2 are differentiated. ...Read more
See below: Presence of antibodies is not synonymous with disease. All lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the test is usually in the best position to do that. You are right to be concerned with the high titer and should consult your doctor. See this site for more info. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/celiac-disease/ds00319. ...Read more
What should I do after providing antibiotics to my 9-month-old son if his temperature is still high?
Notify the MD: If your child was prescribed antibiotics for an infection and the associated fever does not resolve within 2-3 days, you should notify the prescribing doctor. This could be an indication that a different antibiotic is needed, the condition is worsening, or antibiotics may not be the answer to this particular problem. ...Read more
I have hashimotos and wondering if there is any thing that I can do to lower my antibodies. They are very high?
Out of your control: The antibodies assist with the diagnosis. Once made, ignore them. Stay physically fit. Eat sensibly. Monitor how you feel and comply with your Meds and follow-up. In the past, Hashoto's was deadly. Be glad for today's management. Read up on your illness. Stay proactive. Best wishes. ...Read more
How do I manage Hashimotos adequately if I cannot take medicine yet? My antibody count isn't high enough to warrent it.
Endocrinologist: Treatment of Hashimotos is determined by thyroid function tests, mainly TSH, not by the antibody levels. You may have Hashimotos but still have enough thyroid tissue to have normal levels of thyroid hormone. There is no treatment for antibodies per se. Consult an endocrinologist for management of the disorder. ...Read more
If some one fast for 21 days will the insulin and cpeptide levels be low if they have prediabetes also will there cortisol levels be high?
Yes but why fast...: Insulin and c-peptide will be low if you fast. 21 days is not recommended for anyone. Diabetes and prediabetes will not affect these levels in any reliable way. I also do not expect cortisol levels to be particularly helpful. If you are concerned about dm or prediabetes, the answer is a fasting glucose test and a hemoglobin a1c. ...Read more
Clinically Hypokpp diagnosed. Does glucose shift K in a healthy person? Could K shift glucose and leave you with high insulin before body can respond?
See doctor: Glucose enters the cells under the influence of insulin and facilitates ingress of K inside the cells. However, this process does not alter the blood levels of potassium in a healthy person as kidney compensates for the changes. If you are diabetic or pre-diabetic, these mechanisms may not work properly. It would be prudent to consult your doctor as there are causes of K disorders. ...Read more
