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?

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

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?

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

Alkaline Phosphatase 129 / C-Reactive Protein 13.2 / Ebv Nuclear Antigen Ab & Ebv Ab Vca, Igg >600 / Dr. says no worries but should I be concerned?

Alkaline Phosphatase 129 / C-Reactive Protein 13.2 / Ebv Nuclear Antigen Ab & Ebv Ab Vca, Igg >600 /  Dr. says no worries but should I be concerned?

Depends: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your C-reactive protein is elevated suggesting inflammation. you may wish to repeat the test in 6 months or so. Your doctor knows more about your health and you should follow his/her advice. ...Read more

Yes: That sounds like lab error. Your hbsab would provide immunity; i'm assuming yoru hbcab (core) is negative; i wouldn't worry, talk to your doctor about a retest if you are concerned, but even if you were infected, there is no reason for treatment at this time. ...Read more

MRI shows nonspecific flair hyperintensities in the deep and subcortical white matter. Blood work shows EBV ab VCA IgG 325.00 and Lyme P23 ab present?

MRI shows nonspecific flair hyperintensities in the deep and subcortical white matter.  Blood work shows EBV ab VCA IgG 325.00 and Lyme P23 ab present?

See details: A single positive on the Western blot means nothing. That is a negative test. Similarly a positive EBV IGG means old but not active disease. Why was the MRI ordered in the first place? ...Read more

Sjögren's syndrome: Anti-ssa antibodies are most commonly associated with Sjögren's syndrome, but it does not confirm a diagnosis. Pts should may have symptoms of dry eyes and dry mouth, which are classic for Sjögren's syndrome. These ab's are also associated with connective tissue diseases such as lupus or SLE. However, a pt must have clinical and lab abnormalities to meet the diagnosis. ...Read more

Feel great - incidental finding ANA 1:160 after acute sinusitis. Then had Anti-DNA, Ant-Smith, SSA/SSB, RNP, SCL-70, Centromere, and Thyroid labs all normal. Does this exclude autoimmune disorder?

False positive ANA: ANA positivity very common in general population. You had the correct assessment showing no common autoimmune diseases. A repeat ANA can be 1:80 as you rid infection. It is a non specific test till titers of 1:640. ...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

Depends. : You have developed an auto antibody to your own thyroid tissue. Over time, this may cause excess thyroid hormone to be secreted (hyperthyroidism), but eventually if it becomes too damaged, you may develop thyroid deficiency (hypothyroidism). Check in with provider to look for signs of either condition. ...Read more

Hepatitis B tests: An antibody means that your body reacted to something and tried to fight it off. That's your immune system doing what it's supposed to. An antigen is something like a piece of virus that shouldn't be there. Your test report shows you were exposed to Hepatitis B but luckily your body fought it off. This HepBe test helps prove if you developed immunity from natural infection or from the vaccine. ...Read more

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 more
