I'm having negative DNA ,Sm and Rnp antibodies, but positive sm/rnp antibody,and high ANA titre speckled,so what is the diagnosis ?
Lupus: These serologies are rather non specific. The speckled ANA is non specific. In Systemic Lupus Erythematosis (SLE) it is usually homogeneous in its staining. Anti-Sm and Anti RNP can be see in mixed connective-tissue diseases and overlaps with SLE, scleroderma and myositis. As often is the case a specific diagnosis cannot be made. You need to see a Rheumatologist. ...Read more
Blood group antigen: Rhesus (rh) blood group is one of the more than 20 different blood group systems. One of the markers in rh system is "d" that is used in the terminology you inquired about.

Blood tests negative for celiac, hla gene positive, biopsy positive. Could there be another cause for mucosal flattening?
Unlikely: The blood test is of secondary importance. It depends on what test you had, for instance the immunoglobulin a antibody to tissue transglutaminase may be negative if one already avoids eating gluten. Also, it is not very sensitive. The definitive test is the biopsy (not the gene, which does only show the likelihood of developing the disease. You probably have celiac disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What is the test result range for both negative & positive for HSV antibodies IgM & igg? Ex. <0.9 ... Etc
Differs by lab: What you are asking is for the normal "reference ranges" for these tests. Reference ranges are established by each laboratory based on their testing equipment and vary from lab to lab. There is no universal reference range for these or other lab tests. You would need to ask for the range at the lab where the tests were run. ...Read more
I urgently need help regarding some blood test results of my girlfriend. ABO blood group test value- O
rh o(d) factor- positive. pls help?
ANA via ELISA 74 units, strong positive (negative via IFA)
Anti-Cardiolipin IgG 22 CU, moderate positive
Short answer is : Needing more info on labs and clinical symptoms. ANA positive is sensitive for possible autoimmune disease.but not very specific. Every lab on your ENA panel is important esp they are moderate positive and they all mean something different. Lab is never enough for diagnosis esp rheumatic condition. It is important for you to find a rheumatologist for thorough history and physical exam. ...Read more
PM/Scl: The paradox of rheumatologic diseases is that there are more lab tests in this area than any other, and they of relatively less value compared to the history and physical findings than in other fields. If your rheumatologist is comfortable with the diagnosis of "scleromyositis", which usually features anti-pm/scl, i'd accept it even with a single negative result, and proceed. ...Read more

Lab Error: I would chalk this up to lab error, but in my patients we do not leave it there. There is a much better and more valid test to be done called a western blot test for herpes. This definitive test should have already been offered to you so that you can know for a fact whether you have herpes or not. ...Read more
