Chronic osteomylitis, bone marrow biopsy normal, jak-2 mutation negative, erythropoitin level normal, s.Ferritin level 5 but hb.17.8.What is its reason ?

Chronic osteomylitis, bone marrow biopsy normal, jak-2 mutation negative, erythropoitin level normal, s.Ferritin level 5 but hb.17.8.What is its reason ?

Many possibilities: Your question is why your hemoglobin is at the top-of-normal (or maybe a tiny bit above) for a person of your age and gender. I'm much, much more concerned about your chronic osteomyelitis. I'd consider a right-to-left cardiac shunt, osler-weber-rendu lung shunt, sleep apnea, high-affinity hemoglobin, an obscure mutation. It's not dangerous in itself & could "just be you.". ...Read more

Does low bone density causes joint pain all joints Rh ANA factor thyroid are normal?

Does low bone density causes joint pain all joints Rh ANA factor thyroid are normal?

Not bone density: Low bone density does not cause any symptoms unless you have a fracture due to osteoporosis, then there is pain. Pain in joints can be from osteoarthritis or other forms of arthritis. See your doctor or a rheumatologist for diagnosis and treatment of joint pain. ...Read more

RA [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], ALT(GPT)@59, [email protected], [email protected], Iron [email protected]%. Normal? Eval for RA. Have Fibro. Waiting on ANA/CCP.

RA factor@17, CRP@5.7, CO2@20, S.Albumin@4.2, ALT(GPT)@59, VitB12@1189, VitD@16.7, Iron Sat.@16%. Normal? Eval for RA. Have Fibro. Waiting on ANA/CCP.

See details: Those values mean absolutely nothing by themselves except for the fact that most are normal. Rheumatologic diagnosis, especially RA, depends on the presence of an inflammatory arthritis, not just aches and pains. Lab studies confirm the clinical diagnosis, they do not make the diagnosis by themselves. ...Read more

I'm 23 male my ra factor is 100 positive my ccp is 16 negative , sed rate 12 negative, and crp .13 negative can high blood fats cause + ra factor?

I'm 23 male my ra factor is 100 positive my ccp is 16 negative , sed rate 12 negative, and crp .13 negative can high blood fats cause + ra factor?

See below: 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, rheumatoid factor is not a specific marker for rheumatoid arthritis. It can be positive in many situations, including recovery from infection. High blood fat per se is not a cause of +RA factor. ...Read more

Can an active EBV infection cause CRP levels to elevate? BW shows CRP level at 13.0

Can an active EBV infection cause CRP levels to elevate?  BW shows CRP level at 13.0

Yes: However, I would set little by an elevated C-reactive protein in any case. It's one tiny piece of information when there's a serious diagnostic puzzle; basically useless just as a piece of health maintenance information. It is often up for no reason whatever. Best wishes. ...Read more

Creatinine level is 1.3mg/dl (range:0.8-1.3)..bun/creat ratio normal,electrolytes all normal, uric acid normal, urinalysis all normal.. any concern?

Creatinine level is 1.3mg/dl (range:0.8-1.3)..bun/creat ratio normal,electrolytes all normal, uric acid normal, urinalysis all normal..
any concern?

No: At your age, kidney function is usually starting to drop of. And/or you may simply be physically fit and decently muscled. When I was lifting weights daily, I ran 1.7-1.8. I see you have hepatitis C and cirrhosis. See if you can get into one of these new studies with the meds that usually cure it. Best wishes. ...Read more

I tested positive for the ANA screen, 1:160 titer, speckled pattern. Rheumatoid factor 21, SED rate 22. Does this indicate Rheumatoid arthritis?

I tested positive for the ANA screen, 1:160 titer, speckled pattern. Rheumatoid factor 21, SED rate 22. Does this indicate Rheumatoid arthritis?

No: The rheumatoid factor was barely above negative. It is usually greater than 150 in RA. The CCP antibody is a much more specific test. The diagnosis of RA depends on several diagnostic criteria. The rheumatoid factor is nonspecific. ...Read more

Blood test showed , ESR and RDW levels slightly high, and hematocrit level decreased slightly but no iron deficiency, suffering from dizziness. Scary?

Blood test showed , ESR and RDW levels slightly high, and hematocrit level decreased slightly but no iron deficiency, suffering from dizziness. Scary?

POT and Minerals: A twenties female taking Aldactone (spironolactone) and who has dizziness needs blood mineral and thyroid tests. If these are normal a mild case of postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (pots) becomes of concern. I have seen pots problem in women with joint hypermobility syndrome (jhs), and generalized musculoskeletal deconditioning seems etiologic. See an osteopath. ...Read more

Pr3 at 3.8 but anca-c normal. Esr 80 hs crp 8.5 crp 0.4 with anemia, ckd, chf.  Is pr3 related to neuropathy vasculitis?Reference ranges vary 4 pr3?

Rule out Wegener's: Lab error may happen when testing for vasculitis. If there's a lesion in the nose / ear / eye / lung / kidney that's suspicious for anca-c disease / "granulomatous polyangiitis" then biopsy is indicated; trust this over the labs. Dr. Wegener was a German in WWII but did not take part in crimes against humankind and the knowledge he gave the world has saved many lives. Hope this gets sorted out. ...Read more

Igg was 1570 norm 717-1411, igm, IgA normal- sed rate, CRP norm. Cbc norm. Cmp norm cept co2 was 22 norm is 23-32. Ana was 1:160speckled, hands feet tingly at times. No raynaud why hi IgG and low co2?

Lab data: These data can only be interpreted in the context of clinical issues. You need to go back and ask the doctor who ordered these tests what they mean. Without knowing why they were ordered the results are meaningless. By the way, they are so close to normal that would not worry about it. ...Read more
