What is a the implication is chronically elevated Complement 3 and 4 and elevated IGE? Plaquenil has lowered SED rate and C reactive protein.

What is a the implication is chronically elevated Complement 3 and 4 and elevated IGE?  Plaquenil has lowered SED rate and C reactive protein.

Infection?: If you are being treated for lupus, a normal C3 is a good thing. However when it is elevated, infection may be the cause. If the IgE is only mildly elevated, it may be from something else such as allergies. But it is highly elevated, one will need to rule out other medical conditions. We really need more details re. your symptoms. ...Read more

What could cause chronic high white blood count, chronic high c reactive protein and occasional high neutrophils and lymph system values.

What could cause chronic high white blood count, chronic high c reactive protein and occasional high neutrophils and lymph system values.

C reactive protein: an elevated c reactive protein is an indicator of inflammation in your body. It is elevated after surgery, with cancer of the lymph nodes, vasculitis such as lupus, or chronic infections such as chronic infections of the bone. The high white count and high neutrophil count could be due to infection. The abnormal lymphocytes could be due to lymphoma or viral infection. Get checked ASAP. ...Read more

Sed rate okay: 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, Your sed rate will vary with the menstrual cycle and is normal. CRP levels depends on the units. If it was high sensitivity CRP (hsCRP) it is higher than desirable.

Cause of elevations in proinsulin, c-peptides and proinsulin:c-peptide ratio, c reactive protein & ferritin. Normal A1c & glucose. Previously overwei?

Cause of elevations in proinsulin, c-peptides and proinsulin:c-peptide ratio, c reactive protein & ferritin. Normal A1c & glucose.  Previously overwei?

Can't answer: Nobody here can answer without your clinical history, though i wouldn't be surprised if you have hemochromatosis -- truth is, i hope you do, because it's the easiest of all the deadly diseases to manage. It's also worth remembering that serum ferritin is an acute phase reactant and likely to be high during some other illness. You're a person, not a set of labs. Insist on a full explanation. ...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
