Immunofixation Electrophoresis Procedure
Immunofixation, Serum FAH = Monoclonal IgG kappa immunoglobulin. Beta FAH = 10.5% Abnormal band, immunofixation to follow. I'm IgA deficient too. ??
Possibly: If I am understaning this right you have a monoclonal protien band? The most important next steps here would be to identify the band (immunofixation) and then perfrom quantitvaive immunoglobulin levels. IF there is a monoclonal band, you may very well have reciprocal depriciation of alternative immunoglobulins and IgA deficiecny with an IgG monoclonal protein is possible. ...Read more
High KAPPA/LAMBDA LIGHT CHAIN/slightly high ratio.No Monoclonal protein immunofixation or serum electrophoresis. Is this a type of cancer?Normal WBC
Had bloodwork & urine test don't know what IFE immunofix electrophoresis gel no Monoclonal proteins&IFE paraprotein urine not detected Test done for?
Variant hemoglobins: These tests are done to detect variants of hemoglobin as some of the variants, such as hemoglobin s, cause medical problems. Some states require all pregnant women be tested for hemoglobin variations as part of the antenatal care. ...Read more
Need more info: 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, What is total gamma globulin level? If it is more than 2.0 gm/dL it needs to be evaluated. There are many causes of polyclonal gammopathy., and some of those are serious. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Serum free light chain test shows normal kappa (8.7mg/dl), low lambda (3.80), high kap/lam ratio (2.31). Serum $ urine electrophoresis show no monoclonal protein, nor does serum immunofixation. Likely MGUS, myeloma, or admyloidosis? CBC/met panel ok.
False positive rate: There is 30% or so false positive rate of kappa/lambda ratio in people without MGUS, myeloma or other disorders. 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.

Slightly elevated beta fraction from serum protein electrophoresis. Beta 1.07 (high) (0.52-0.98) increased beta fraction, no monoclonal or polyclonal gammopathy seen. Immunofixation normal.
Blood tests: They are two different separate blood tests, spep serum protein electrophoresis test is a screening test for plasma cell disorders like mgus, smoldering or full blown myeloma and quantitative igg is a blood test to quantify the amount of igg in blood. Usually more than 3 grams is significant in blood. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Serum -tiny IgM kappa monoclonal protein b2 region, urine - tiny IgM k paraproteinemia in gamma region. Was a mistake made or is lab normal?
Monoclonal: •multiple myeloma (g>a>m>e, d) •primary macroglobulinemia (waldenstrøm’s, igm) •monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (mgus) (converts at 2% per year to myeloma) •miscellaneous conditions •(converts at 2% per year to myeloma) these all have to be thought of by the hematologist. ...Read more

Serum immunofixation says IgM kappa in beta2, but urine immunofixation says small discrete band noted in gamma region, no m protein. Is this mgus?

Urine light chains: hello~ thats an impossible question for me to answer here. My brain will overheat if I have to do that in 421 words. Be kind to us. Please go and see an Oncologist or a smart general internist and he will answer or even manage your case. Remember that not all light chains in the urine means myeloma. See an expert and have him explain the difference between MGUS and myeloma.thanks ...Read more
