Follow up: Trusting anti-hbsag, hbsag, e-antigen and e-antibody negative. Have you been immunized? If not, why not? It's likely that you had the disease and got over it. Or the anti-hbcab may be a false positive and thus you should consider being immunized again. Or you may have a smoldering infection with a very small amount of virus. Trust your family is immunized. Follow up and don't stress out. ...Read more

What does this mean ?
SSB(La)IGG Positive 85
SSA(Ro)AB IGG Neg.
SED RATE Neg.
Depends: All lab 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 antibodies to SSA suggest auto-immune disorder, however, if that is the only abnormal test and you do not have any symptoms, I would leave it alone and re-evaluate in six months. ...Read more

Highly unlikley: But hopefully you were also tested for a host of other stds at the same time. The lesson is universal barrier protection. With mono-like illness this could be one of many other diseases, like cmv, toxoplasma, and so on. Only a detailed work-up is likely to clear this up, but then you have to ask yourself if it will make a difference in your long-term health, particularly if you are now better. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

45 yr old female w/Positive ANA w/ nucleolar pattern; IGG & complement diff.; diag. 1997 w/ Fibromyalgia; recently diag. W/Osteopenia in both hips; ?
Separate these Dx: Fibromyalgia is widespread pain, non-restful sleep, and severe fatigue. This is unrelated to osteopenia (painless) which is a deficiency in bone mineralization. Neither of these diagnoses (Dx) are autoimmune conditions. The ANA is a test used to confirm certain autoimmune conditions such as scleroderma and lupus. However, caution here, THE ANA ALONE CANNOT DIAGNOSE ANY CONDITION. ...Read more

Skin worries?: What i understand (possibly incorrectly) is that you protected yourself from sun exposure, but are now concerned about other kinds of radiation poisoning through your clothing. If you were exposed to a source of nuclear radiation, it can certainly come through your clothing. There would be additional symptoms besides weakness though. Please see your doctor for eval & workup. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Seldom a problem: With regular prenatal care this combination is seldom a problem.The bigger threat is unrecognized rh sensitization/ reaction in baby & preventive care using Rhogam during and after pregnancy if needed has dropped the frequency of rh disease significantly.B to o issues occasionally cause a moderate jaundice problem that needs monitoring but i've never seen one produce a major problem. ...Read more

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
