Microparticle Enzyme Immunoassay
What are these tests done for?
Hb, tc, ast, alt, bilurubin total, direct. Creatinine, quantitative CRP assay and rbs.
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
Radioactivity: The farr assay is a radioimmunologic assay. It uses radiolabeled antigens to detect specific antibodies in serum. The antigens are allowed to react with the serum and then precipitated using a special reagent such as protein a sepharose beads. The bound radiolabeled immunoprecipitiate is commonly analzyed by gel electrophoresis. ...Read more
-incom. Rt. Bundle branch block
-cholesterol (total), serum by enzymatic method 208
-biochemistry lipid profile : LDL cholesterol, serum 133
Unlikely 2B related: Total and LDL cholesterol look ok, unless you have heart disease or multiple risk factors for heart disease, then LDL goal is <100. Inocmplete rbbb can be normal. Sometimes is just actually a "r s r-prime" pattern in certain electrocardiogram leads- many times a normal finding seen in healthy young military recruits. Incomplete rbbb can progress to a complete right bundle block. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hiv 1/2 blood analysis:
-antibodies and p24 antigen (chemiluminescence): reactive-2, 741
- IgG antibodies (enzyme immunoassay):nonreactive
in this case, is HIV infection accurate?
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
LDH Isoenzymes lab test results:
LDH total- 153. LD1- 32, LD2-30, LD3, 20, LD4- 8, LD5- 10. Are these results normal? Is the LD1&LD2 ratio abnormal?
Historic test: Matthew, the LDH isoenzyme test is ancient history, almost never ordered nowadays. And your LDH is normal. The old 1-2 ratio is an antique screen for a heart attack, and it's neither sensitive nor specific. I know you're obsessing over the idea that you have lymphoma, and a few websites suggest this as a screening test -- but it's not. Focus on building a life for yourself. ...Read more
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.
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

HSV 1 positive through blood test =[LIAISON assay using chemiluminescence immunoassay (CLIA) tech.] Index=1.47, how likely is it false positive?
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. Practice safe sex. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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

C.trachomatis RNA TMA Result: Detected. Standard range: Not detected. Test performed using the Aptima Combo2 (R) assay gen-probe(r)
You have chlamydia: "Detected" means the test found chlamydia -- i.e. a positive result. Return to the doctor or clinic where the test was done for treatment. (If you tested yourself at a lab, see a doctor or clinic ASAP.) Your current or recent sex partner(s) also need treatment. Good luck! ...Read more
Blood flow cytmtry shows dual positive cd4cd30 cells absolute count of 2354. IGG slightly elevated with elevated light chains, T cell Beta clone noted?
Asking what?: If your are requesting a diagnosis online, this is not the appropriate venue. Though the flow cytometry results are not totally normal, your results should be reviewed with the physician who ordered it. This format does not give us the ability to determine if your clinical presentation and lab results are consistent with a specific diagnosis. ...Read more
Mitochondria: It sounds like you have been reading about mitochondria, the powerhouse organelle of cells. These organelles use methods to create the cellular currency of energy, Adenosine triphosphate. You probably read that a portion of the ATP synthase complex is embedded in the mitochondrial membrane.
