I just received some test results back that said my protein c is high, protein s is low my pai-1 is high, my chloride is high and my co2 is low?

I just received some test results back that said my protein c is high, protein s is low my pai-1 is high, my chloride is high and my co2 is low?

Clot risk.: A high protein c has no significance, only low. A low protein s, like protein c, is a risk for having abnormal blood clots or pregancy complications. Protein c and s cooperate to dissolve blood clots. Pai-1 blocks the clot dissolving pathway, so a high level also is a risk for abnormal clots. A high chloride and low co2 are part of the salts in the blood that are regulated by the kidneys. ...Read more

Tested for anti cardiolipin IgM is negative(0.7) but IgG is positive (54.8) normal range of lupus anticoagulant, protein S and protein C activity help?

Not sure: I am not sure I understand the question. I suspect you are being evaluated for a blood clotting disorder and you have an elevated anticardiolipin IgG. One test however does not make the diagnosis of anti-phospholipid syndrome. ...Read more

What are protein c and protein s tests?

What are protein c and protein s tests?

Tests for clotting: People whose blood tends to clot excessively can have deep vein thrombosis (clots in veins in the legs or abdomen) or pulmonary emboli (clots that travel to the lungs). A deficiency of protein c or protein s, among other things, can cause excess clotting. Tests for protein c or s are used to diagnose levels of these proteins in the blood. ...Read more

What does it mean when elevated levels of protein c and protein s ?

See below : These are blood tests that we usually do to screen people who we think have a predisposition to have blood clots. By themselves they don't mean anything as normal people can have elevated levels. If you have a strong family history of blood clots or if u have had a blood clot yourself then this test could have significance. The best thing to do would be to discuss with a hematologist. ...Read more

Dear sir, what is protein c and protein s 
I need your info about it?

Blood coagulation: Protein C and S work together in regulating the clotting of blood. These proteins are important in controlling the amount of blood clot formation inside blood vessels. Deficiency of either can lead to venous blood clot formation. Deficiencies of both are not that common. ...Read more
