Ana titer with reflex to ifa of 1:320 and neg for antibody tests what does that mean? Pattern was speckled and homogeneos
My teen had ANA test but now dr is saying we need a "reflex titer" blood test. What is it and does that mean ANA positive?
Suggestive of auto-: Immune disorder. A high concentration of anti-nuclear antibody is one indicator or auto-immune disease. Titer is one expression for concentration of a particular antibody. See this site for info on ana: http://www.Nlm.Nih.Gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003535.Htm. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had HSV DNA PCR test with CSF? Negative. Also had HSV 1/2 antibody (IgM), IFA with reflex to Titer, CSF. Negative. Can I still have HSV 1 or 2?
No HSV in CNS: With these tests, you're obviously under a doctor's care, maybe including an infectious diseases specialist or neurologist. They can answer these questions best. But these results effectively rule out HSV infection of your central nervous system. Something else is causing the problem. That said, the HSV IgM test is notoriously unreliable. You probably also had an IgG test, probably negative. ...Read more

No: What's the titer? Does this match your symptoms / signs / other labs? Even the big fancy commercial labs make mistakes with these. ...Read more

Energy deficiency: Mitochondrial diseases result from dysfunctional mitochondria (powerhouses of cells). When they don’t function, the body has energy deficiency. Symptoms often come from organs that have high energy need such as brain (seizures, migraines), heart (weak heart muscle) liver, muscles, hormone system, etc. There is no cure yet for mitochondrial diseases but lot of active research to find a cure. ...Read more
Energy failure: Mitochondrial diseases result from dysfunctional mitochondria (powerhouses of cells). When they don’t function, the body has energy (atp) deficiency. Thus, symptoms often come from organs with high energy need e.g. Brain (seizures, migraines), heart (weak heart muscle) liver, muscles, hormone system, etc. There is no cure yet for mitochondrial diseases but lot of active research to find a cure. ...Read more
Is a 'normal' "mito map" indicative of no need for further testing for suspected mitochondrial dis?
Energy failure: Mitochondria are the "engines" of the cell. They produce the energy that enables each cell to perform its designated function. Loss of enough cellular energy produces loss of function expressed as symptoms. ...Read more
New mutations: Just because it is labeled mitochondrial does not mean the information in these organelles is not subject to the same chance of new mutations as other dna bearing material. Many of the affected patients do not live long enough to pass the disorder to offspring as some might think. ...Read more
