Parietal Cell Ab result was 10.0 what does it mean?

Parietal Cell Ab result was 10.0 what does it mean?

Hard to tell: Anti-parietal cell antibodies are age & sex dependent, with an increasing incidence in women and older people. This blood test looks for antibodies against the parietal cells of the stomach. Depending on which laboratory assay was used to determine the level of antibodies without a reference point it would be inappropriate to assign significance to the number. ...Read more

What is the parietal lobe and what is it's function?

What is the parietal lobe and what is it's function?

Part of brain: It is part of brain positioned above the occipital lobe and behind the frontal lobe.
Its function is to integrate sensory information from the visual cortex. It includes infomation processing related to the sense of touch. So it is involved in visuospatial processing. It is also involved with language processing. ...Read more

I was wondering does the parietal lobe affect our sense of touch?

Integration center: Parietal lobe provides localization, timing, and integration of incoming brain data, and gives us perspective on the outside world. Regarding sense of touch, it allows simultaneous perspectives, and perception of location of the touch, including intensity of sensation. ...Read more

Parietal Cell Ab result was 10.0 what does it mean? Nobody will answer

Blood test: It is a blood test done to test for B12 deficiency. It is called Parietal Cell Antibody. There is an immune mediated process that leads to the destruction of the parietal cells of the stomach and then the production of the Intrinsic factor. As a result, the body wi not be able to absorb diathermy B12 leafy to B12 deficiency. Anything less. Than 20 is negative. And do not have B12 deficienc ...Read more

Does the body lose all sensation if the parietal lobe stopped functioning?

Does the body lose all sensation if the parietal lobe stopped functioning?

NO!: All sensations are organized and responded by THALAMUS Only cortical sensation s are controlled by the parietal lobes (2 point discriminationn, stereognosis i.e. the shape of objects, also the weight of objects) ...Read more

What is high parietal scalp haematoma in small left posterior and its effects?

What is high parietal scalp haematoma in small left posterior and its effects?

Usually from trauma: All this means is that there has been some bleeding into the scalp. The effect is that usually this is in an area of trauma and therefore, it hurts. The blood will get reabsorbed and will heal on its own. ...Read more

What role does the dominant parietal lobe have in speech and speech formation?

What role does the dominant parietal lobe have in speech and speech formation?

Critical: Dominant speech pathways connect via the arcuate fasciculus, and connect expressive centers in frontal broca's area to receptive regions in the temporal lobe. ...Read more

I have a knot on my head in the middle of my parietal it feels like my skull it's been there 11 years what could it be?

Hard to know: Without being able to examine this and get an imaging study if necessary it is almost impossible to say with any certainty, but what is likely is that if it has been there since you were 5 years old and has not caused problems it is not likely to do so. Good luck. ...Read more

How thick is the parietal bone of a 18 year old male?

Varies: It varies depending. It is not something that is normally done. What is measured is the biparietal diameter which is the distance across the skull from ear to ear while the fetus is in utero. This is used to monitor the fetal growth. There are growth curves available on the internet. ...Read more

What is an inflammation of visceral and parietal pleura?

What is an inflammation of visceral and parietal pleura?

Multiple pathologies: Inflammation of the pleura, pleurisy, may be due to infections in the pleural cavity or overlying lung. There is generally inflammation of the pleura overlying lung infarcts. Auto-immune diseases, e.g., lupus can also cause inflammation of pleura. Pleurisy of apparent unknown cause should be treated as tuberculosis unless proven otherwise. ...Read more

Sharp pain in temporal parietal lobe?

Impossible: You cannot have a pain in your temporal or parietal lobe. Your brain has no pain nerves. All sensations are processed in the brain but experienced elsewhere in the body. Whatever pain you're feeling, it's not in your brain tissue. ...Read more

Brain malformation: Schizencephaly is a problem with how the brain developed- parietal describes what part of the brain- that along the sides and bilateral means on both sides- the malformation causes problems like developmental delays- cause is unknown

Do hemineglect, hemiplegia occur from damage to the parietal lobe?

Yes: Contralateral weakness can be present. Sensation is altered on the same side, and pts have trouble localizing motion in time and space. Extinction phenomena occur, position sensation can be lost, the affected limb may not be recognized or even thought to be part of another person. ...Read more

What is left parietal hematoma? Is parietal hematoma and subdural hematoma same?

What is left parietal hematoma? Is parietal hematoma and subdural hematoma same?

Different: A hematoma is like a bruise or collection of blood from a trauma. In parietal hematoma this is in the parietal lobe of the brain, so it is in the brain tissue itself. A subdural hematoma is just under the dura mater one of the coverings of the brain so it is up close to the skull. ...Read more

What is left parietal hematoma? Is parietal hematoma and subdural hematoma same?

Hematoma- blood coll: Hematoma is collection of blood somewhere in the body...anywhere in the body....it's called a hematoma. Parietal tells us the location (Parietal lobe of the brain) usually due to high blood pressure while Subdural hematoma means collection of blood below the level of the DURAL cover of the covering of the brain called the meninges...often times traumatic cause but also often can be spontaneous. ...Read more

On an EEG- What does it mean if you had "longer than normal recovery from HV" and spikes & slowing in parietal lobe??

EEG Abnormal: Hi Nicole,
It would help knowing why you had the EEG. I am not so worried about the "HV" recovery but the spikes and slowing in the left temporal lobe is not normal and suggests that you might have epilepsy or s structural brain lesion and should have an MRI of the brain. This should be discussed with your doctor.
Hope that helps,
-Dr Safdieh ...Read more
