My 13y/o daughter had gad65 ab >30.0, ia-2ab <0.8 and insulin ab <0.4 she is iddm.I know dr.Wanted to check function of her pancreas.Results mean?
My rnp is1.6 (normal<1.0), u1rnp is >0.2, all ena- panel >0.2. My ebna:0.8, vca-igm:<0.2, ea-d:0, vca-igg:5. Can rnp rise from vca-igg:8.5(norm>1.0)?

My daughter's 3 years old. She weighs 8.5 kg and is 100cms tall. She was a elbw baby born800 gms.My issue is her weight. She's got bags under her eyes?
Very concerning: Elbw preemies take time to catch up with other children, and we correct their age for their prematurity when checking their growth the first 3 years. If the numbers you listed are accurate, your child would be tall (93rd %ile for girls exactly 3 yrs old) but off the chart for weight (less than the 1st %ile). That would be very concerning & something you need to discuss with your pediatrician. ...Read more

Mom had good bev hills blepharoplasty. Went for eye exam dilate. One lid drooped more for 4hr. Due to wrong dose or muscle? Her dad had oc mya gravis
Eyelid Drooping: Most pupil dilating drops are parasympathetic antagonists that act by paralyzing the iris sphincter muscle. It is possible that the medication also relaxed (or temporarily paralyzed) one of the small muscles that elevates the eyelid - likely mueller's muscle which lifts the lid via sympathetic stimulation (opposite the effect of dilating drops). Get it checked out if symptoms recur on their own. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
