Was tested using HIV using HIV ab, HIV 1/2, eia, with reflex 65 days from a possible infection, how accurate this test?And should I get tested again?
Yes and no: Usually people tested within the first 3-6 weeks of an exposure can have a false negative, but 65 days out should be enough time to have a positive test, so if it was negative, it's very likely it is correct. That said, if you have had a repeat exposure you are concerned about, you would need to be retested. ...Read more

Lyme disease ab plus reflex to igg, igm-wb blood test done today. How long for results and how accurate are they?

Had possible hiv exposure 14 yrs ago. Had eia hiv ab hiv1/2 with reflex, rapid blood test. Negative. Do i need a rna viral load test to be conclusive?
No RNA test needed: This largely duplicates your previous question. EIA alone is sufficient. RNA testing normally is done only when there is concern about very early infection, before antibody appears (i.e. exposure within past 4-6 weeks or symptoms of acute HIV infection) and in known-infected persons to measure viral load. (FYI, "with reflex" only means that confirmatory testing is automatic if EIA is positive.) ...Read more

I have had RA, ANA w/reflex, CRP (cardiac), TSH reflex to T4F, sed rate, anti-dsDNA, anti-Smith, all normal. Can I be confident nothing is wrong?
Can anybody?: It seems like you were having an evaluation for arthritis or fatigue (you don't state the symptoms you're concerned about). The studies you got all being normal should be fairly consoling but unfortunately even if we order every imaginable test we can still have one that comes back normal when in fact you have that disease- a false negative. Keep track of your symptoms and get back to your MD ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Red face, hair loss, wrinkled fingertips. ANA w/reflex: negative. TSH reflex to T4F: 1.660 uIU/mL. Anti-dsDNA: 2. Smith anti: <0.02. What is going on?
Urine test: Urinanalysis is test commonly done to check for infection, blood, sugar, ketones etc. The reflex microscopic portion is done automatically if the initial test shows any abnormality. For example, if there are signs of infection, then technicians will automatically look at the specimen under the microscope to see if there are any bacteria. This helps to decide on further testing and treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
