High Monocytes Level In Lupus
I have a chronic low WBC (3.8-5.4), positive ANA (1:320 speckled & 1:80 homogenous) & high monocytes (9.7-13.0). Could I have lupus?
Possibly: Possibly, but rheumatologic evaluation would be helpful.See 1 more doctor answer
I have low WBC 3.7, monocytes 22% (never been this high) and large platelets present. All else normal. I have Lupus, RA, Factor 5 Leiden. Thoughts?
Non viral causes of high monocytes 16%? 4 y/o w/Symptoms: recurring fever, cyanosis, joint pain, no appetite, swollen lymph nodes. FH of JRA & Lupus.
Not the key: As a pathologist and lab specialist, I would discourage you from paying any attention at all to percentages, or to monocytes unless the absolute count is well over 1000. Sounds like a JRA variant if it is clear there is no heart defect or endocarditis
My monocytes, neutrophils, and platelet counts are typically elevated. Is this cause for concern? I have lupus.
How high?: Reference ranges at set so that several percent of healthies fall outside on either end. And nobody really understands why lupus and the meds often taken for it do raise counts. If the cells are normally formed, I would not be concerned.
See below: 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, a monocyte count of 156 is not a cause for concern.
What do you think it means when your complement level comes back high (176) but you test a "low" postive for lupus? This is for my 18 month old son.
Need more: A diagnosis of lupus requires way more testing than this.
Would it be appropriate to see a hematologist regarding elevated aptt and promethin levels that were done for lupus? Or should I see a rheumatologist
Elevated ferritin levels, but I'm chronically anemic-missed 6 venofer injections, what are possible causes? Is lupus possibility?
What's going on?: If you have an elevated serum ferritin, then you are almost certainly not iron-deficient and should not be receiving injectable iron. It can kill you. I am not joking. Please get with someone who knows how to work up an anemia properly. I'm betting on one of the milder thalassemia variants, but there are literally hundreds of other possibilities.See 1 more doctor answer
I have very high inflammation levels my no. Is 73 and rising. Been tested. No cancer, lupus, ra, but no answers. Any ideas?
Unclear question: What is 73? Who gave you this number? If you do not have any symptoms, why did you have the test done? If would be prudent to consult a qualified md.
With recent blood tests indicating detectable (ie. High) levels of crp, ANA and esr, should I seek testing for lupus or any other diseases?
A good idea,,,: That would be a good idea, given your history of hashimoto's, and especially if you have symptoms and signs like a "butterfly" rash on your face and joint pain/discomfort.
My ANA is 1:1280 is that not dangerously high? No lupus, found out my thyroid is producing those levels. Doc didn't give me anything. What's next?
Lupus patient- last round of tests show abnormally high bilirubin levels and abnormally low AST and ALT. What would cause this and what would it mean?
Obstructive jaundice: You may have a "blockage" of your liver ducts due to your Lupus or one of the medication you are taking! This needs further study ASAP A Rheumatologist should be consulted Good Luck Hope this helps Dr Z
I have lupus and concerned with my test results having high levels of protein and blood in my urine. Infection and blood clot in my kidney last year.?
I'm concerned too: Lupus produces problems with the kidney filters more often than not, and this usually announces itself as blood and protein in the urine. Your physician knows how to manage this with others labs. If you had a renal vein thrombosis, it's very serious and you need long-term management by a competent nephrologist. Read up on lupus nephritis and on urinalysis and how to understand the big picture.See 1 more doctor answer
Negative ANA levels. High TBO tests (118 iu/ml). Negative TSH. Could I still have lupus? So frustrated with my results! Doc says hashimotos.
No but: Why are you not trusting your doctor's conclusion? By the way, did you mean high TPO instead of TBO? Was the TSH negative =zero or normal? None of these tests however pointed to lupus but were compatible with Hashimoto's with still normal thyroid function (normal TSH) eventually leading to hypothyroid status and thus requiring regular follow-up.
Positive ANA, 1:320, homogenous. Started testing due to high protein levels and symptoms of muscle aches, fevers, fatigue. Lupus?
Not necessarily: A number of criteria have to be met to diagnose lupus. Please consult this site for more information on this topic. Http://www. Lupus. Org/answers/entry/lupus-diagnostic-criteria 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. 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. Get HPV vaccine.
My ESR and CRP levels are high. I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and also have raynauds, ulcers in mouth, sleep disturbances. Could it be lupus?
Fibromyalgia/lupus: Sounds like you have autoimmune disease like lupus or mixed connective tissue disease. Your symptoms can certainly be due to it. Fibromyalgia can, however, coexist with lupus, and the presence of lupus does not necessarily exclude coexistence of fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is a clinical diagnosis based on history and exam, and represents a chronic pain syndrome distinct from lupus.See 1 more doctor answer
My ANA levels are high I took the lupus test it was at a 5 but I still have pains, tingling, numbness in hands, feet, arms, legs. Told me fibromyalga
Question?: I am not sure what you are asking. The ANA is a screening test for lupus but can be seen in numerous other diseases and in people who have no disease. I assume the lupus test you mention is a dna antibody. This test does not have to positive to have lupus. Finally, about 30% of lupus patients also have fibromyalgia. See a rheumatologist if you have not done so already.
Presented w/ inability to walk, hair loss, muscle/joint pain, have a positive ana, high levels of ssdna, dsdna, ssa (ro), histone, sed rate. Lupus?
Could be: You need a good work-up with a qualified rheumatologist -- soon?
