Elevated EBV ab VCA IgG <8 and EBV nucleaer antigen ab IgG test 4.2. & anti-dna(ss)igg ab qn ( 119)& c react protien(5.6) what are implications?
Nothing.: Ebv antibodies indicate you had a previous infection, but not active. The c-reactive protein needs a units indicator - that is either normal or somewhat elevated. The anti ss dna is extremely nonspecific and very rarely indicated; I have no idea why that was ordered, discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

Possible exposure: Igg positive antibodies which you have, indicate a past infection and not recent i.e. Active. Positive i gm antibodies usually indicate current infection. This means you may be have been exposed to mono in the past, the debate still goes on whether there's any correlation between this and chronic fatigue syndrome as many patients who have positive igg or igm do not have chronic fatigue symptoms. ...Read more
What would cause a high positive ANA (1:640) speckled, nucleolar with a low positive smooth muscle antibody (1:40) but negative SS-A, SS-B, anti-Smith, RNP, SCL-70, Anti Jo antibodies? Liver disease?
Probably normal: Many people have a positive ANA without being sick. If you also have elevated liver enzymes, a workup for autoimmune hepatitis may be continued, but if there's nothing to suggest a liver problem biochemically, I'd not be in a hurry to diagnose despite anti-smooth-muscle. ANA means nothing apart from the clinical picture. Best wishes. ...Read more
I have positive ANA sm, ssa (ro), ssb (la) , ro52, jo-1, sci-70, ribosomal p antibodies what are the levels for each antibody that signify lupus ?
Level not important: If these antibodies are truly positive the degree of positivity is not that important. ...Read more
EBV early antigen Ab, IgG <9; EBV Eb, VcA, IgG >600; EBV nuclear antigen Ab IgG 108. Diagnossed with CAEBV infection. Does this sound right to you?
Maybe.: The profile is of a past infection. I am not sure if it can be diagnosed just by symptoms and evidence of past infection. I think you would need the second criteria of diagnosis which is DNA of EBV in peripheral tissue or blood detectable through PCR test with a low anti-EA. Have other diagnoses like Lyme's been tested for? ID specialist. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3245398/ ...Read more
On ceruplasmin test hep A AB Total reactive ref range U mean? Also Hep A AB (IGM) nonreactive ref range U mean? What am I testing positive for?
Lab tests: You do not give a value for the ceruloplasm. If you have antibodies to Hepatitis A virus and the IgG is positive and the IgM negative it suggests that you were immunized for hepatitis A or had infection in the past. Why not discuss these values with the doctor who ordered them? ...Read more
Reactivated EBV 9 months after first infection. Could i be immunodeficient? Antibody count: 65 ab VCA igm; 53 ea ab igg; 431 ab VCA igg; 289 ebna igg.
No: Unfortunately ebv stays alive forever in one's lymphocytes and can get activated easily in susceptible people without known immunodeficiency. However you may call that an immunodeficiency given that all people have been infected with it yet only few would have recurrent ebv problem. ...Read more

My dr mailed my rest results to me, and they are as follows........ Ssb ab *23 , ssa ab *3, and rnp ab *0 . What does this mean ? Please help !
Test: Rheumatologic conditions are truly made by clinical evaluation, as tests often false positives. Hopefully under care of rheumatologist. They have clinical experience to know what's real and what isn't. It takes good clinical history, tests may or may not help, as tests don't make diagnosis, clinical judgement by physician does. What is problem? Lupus?. Confide in physicians clinical judgement not. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Blood tests showed high antibodies to: ana, ssdna, sm, rnp/sm, ssa(ro), ssb(la), scl-70, centromere. Is this likely lupus or a different automimmune?
Prob false positive: To have all these antibodies to be positive is suggestive of a false positive result. Virus infection can cause similiar findings. Ultimately these results have to be interpretted in the context of your doctor's findings. Talk to your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Went to dr with hand, shoulder, hip joint pain. Ana reflex screen Ana positive 1.0 and rnp antibody positive 4.3. All others neg. Very scared!
Lab numbers: These numbers don't show changes at joints and with most auto immune disorders, you may have periods of pain and increased lab numbers, usually related to stress in your life, and once treated medically or with stress reduction, pain/lab should improve. May want xray of one of involved joints just inflamed which can return to baseline. ...Read more
