My Esr Blood Test Shows 58mm
My february blood tests showed ANA 1:80, rnp positive, CRP 5.1, TSH 1.83 also sed rate 25, mpv 12.1 what does this mean?
Just a screening: An "ana" is a blood test used to screen a person for the possibility of several autoimmune diseases. It is important to remember that this is a screening test and a positive result only indicates more testing may be warranted. No blood test is perfect, and getting to a diagnosis is usually much more complex than drawing blood. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Lab data: These tests have little meaning without a full exploration of your signs and symptoms. Lab data can only be helpful if the clinical context in which it develops is known. Discuss this with the doctor who ordered the tests and ask lots of questions. Best wishes. ...Read more
See below: These test results have to be interpreted in context of your symptoms and these are frequently false positives. Seeing a rheumatologist can help you better determine this. If they are a true positive, this can be seen with an autoimmune disease known as mixed connective tissue disease. ...Read more

Gallstones : If you have gallstones on ultrasound then your RUQ pain is most likely symptoms of your gallstones. The elevated CRP suggests inflammation and the alk phos suggests some type of biliary obstruction. I suggest you see a surgeon in your area to discuss options. Please take a copy of your ultrasound and labs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Wat I have to do? Urine creatinine 26.1 mg/dl my lab reaults, white blood cells 16/hpf, hemoglobin screen positive. What does it means?
No: A normal CBC and ESR do not tell you that you don't have cancer. Cancer can present in many ways. The blood tests that you mention are, in themselves, not reliable screening tests for cancer. If you have a concern that you might have cancer, it is important to see your healthcare provider to discuss it. ...Read more

My blood test report shows hav IgG & hbsab as reactive. Sgot-56.9 & sgpt-167.2. High cholesterol also came in report. Is there major reason to worry?
Be very concerned: Rather than worry, insist that your physician figure out why you have elevated transaminases. With these ; only these labs, you have hepatitis c, hemochromatosis, wilson's or autoimmune hepatitis until proved otherwise. All are treatable, but not by worry. You may simply have non-alcoholic steatohepatitis. I do trust you're alcohol-free at this point. Hit the gym hard ; continue the workup. ...Read more
