Immunoglobulin Blood Test Results
How long should blood test results take? On fedruary 3rd my son had blood drawn to test his immune system. They were checking his immunoglobin, t and b cells, a cbc, a full immune panel. It is now february 14th and I have not gotten a call from his docto
Results: Results from blood tests areusually available from the laboratory in less than a week. You might want to call the doctor's office to see if they have received the results. Dest wishes.
I had an immunoglobulin g, qn, serum appear on my blood test result of 2364, yet my doctor said it's not an issue. Is he right?
Correct.: Look at the person. Look at the numbers only when they shed light on the person.
Possibly: Ask your doc. There are five major classes of immunoglobulins (A, D, E, M, and G) and there are subsets of each of those classes. Your doc will have ordered a specific test for a reason. Ask him what he was looking for!
Been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy blood test showed high immunoglobulin m w/polyclonal gammopathy. Kappa/lambda increase. Possible meaning?
PlasmaCellDIsorder: May have plasma cell disorder/multiple myeloma. Plasma cells are a type of white blood cells that produces immunoglobulin (antibodies). Multiple myeloma is a cancerous or excessive proliferation of these plasma cells which may lead to excessive high levels of calcium/bone pain/renal failure/anemia (low blood counts). Need to see hematologist (blood doctor specialist).See 1 more doctor answer
May be: 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, if you provide the results, it may be feasible to render an opinion.
Try HealthTap PRIME: HealthTap PRIME began in 2014 and is Primary Care online consultations. A patient is connected with the first available doctor, and different doctors are online at various times. Patients don't select a particular doctor. A patient using PRIME has a one-on-one visit with the doctor via smartphone, a tablet, or a computer, and she can show the doctor pictures or lab test results. There is a fee.
Which blood test?: Your question was truncated. We'd love to answer. Let us know?
My blood test results showed the mononcytes at 14.1% (973/cmm). Is that too high and what could it mean?
Not a problem: You should ignore monocytes. I always do.
GP: Call you GP office or whoever ordered the test.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Inflammatory bowel disease is a chronic inflammatory process in the lining of the intestinal tract. It does not directly cause any significant changes in the blood so blood tests are usually normal. If a patient had very bad bleeding or diarrhea from the IBD, this could cause changes in the blood counts (CBC), but less symptomatic cases of IBD would probably not show any blood abnormality
Depends on the type: Of test. Most blood tests are completed the same day that blood is collected. Others may be done only a few times a week and may take 3-4 days. Very few tests should take longer than one week.
Yes: Many cancers will not cause changes to the blood counts or chemistry panels. This is one of the reasons why routine screenings with your physician are important.See 3 more doctor answers
About an hour: Point of care test may be available in a matter of minutes. Test done in the main lab takes about and hour. However, it usually takes longer for the results to get back to the ordering doctor due to time taken for blood collection, transportation to the lab, processing in the lab, recording of results. Retesting in a limited number of cases etc.
Nothing: Labs mean nothing whatever in the absence of a clinical history and physical exam. Especially, relative percentages of lymphocytes and granulocytes is junk data that, frankly, I wish the labs wouldn't even report. The absolute counts of both lymps and monocytes fluctuate wildly hour by hour, and i'd draw no conclusion. I hope some other finding will reveal the true cause of your chronic fatigue.
Mostly yes. It means: That you've never had hepatitis A (unless you were infected very recently) but also that you have no immunity to it either. The context of a result is always important and I don't know the context. Dr. Anne
