Can you interpret, squam epi cells few a, alpha 2 protein 1.01 h, possible faint IgM lambda monoclonal protein present, ACE serum 75 h?

Can you interpret, squam epi cells few a, alpha 2 protein 1.01 h, possible faint IgM lambda monoclonal protein present, ACE serum 75 h?

No: Can't interpret random blood test results without context. Talk to the doctor that ordered the tests. Most medical tests (x-rays, blood tests, etc.,) are better at telling us what you don't have rather than diagnosing what (if anything) you do have wrong with you. ...Read more

Pls interpret result in my gram stain. Gm Stain (-), Polymorphonuclear-Moderate, Epi cells-Moderate, Gm (+)Cocci pairs-Few, Gm (+)bacili-Mod, Gm (-)bacili-rare

Gram stain: You don't mention what the specimen is but I'm guessing it's a sputum sample? Looks like mixed flora, probably normal oropharyngeal flora, pretty nonspecific. ...Read more

My urine analysis shows pus cells shows 80-100.... Albumin shows +1 and Epi. Cells shows 2-3/hpf is it dangerous??

My urine analysis shows pus cells shows 80-100.... Albumin shows +1 and Epi. Cells shows 2-3/hpf is it dangerous??

Suggests some: Inflammation. This could be related to inflammation around the urethra, in the urethra or in the higher urinary tract like the bladder and above. A urinalysis without understanding what symptoms you are having is very difficult to interpret. It could be related to an infection or something else. Consider providing more history for improved guidance or just a formal HealthTap consultation. ...Read more

Kindly interpret my urine analysis micro examination :- pus cells:1-2/hpf, rbc:nil, epi cells : +/hpf, bacteria : +?

Probably normal: With respect to predicting the presence or absence of a urinary tract infection, dipstick urinalysis is often unreliable especially in women because of contamination of the urine specimen with vaginal cells and bacteria. I would consider your u/a fairly unremarkable unless you have symptoms of a UTI in which case a urine culture should be done. ...Read more

I am 21 year male my daily routine check because I am suffer from UTI befor 10 days now my report is WBC 8-10HPF RBC 0-2HPF epi cells is 6-8HPF?

Urine contamination?: The findings in your urinalysis could represent those from contaminated urine in men with long tight foreskin with poor hygiene or inflammation or infection, but be always correlated with clinical profile, before drawing a conclusion of UTI or something else. So, ask the doctor attending you & ordering UA. More? Contact www. HealthTap. Com/dr-Lin with keycode of RQPWJC. ...Read more

My urinalysis results show: occasional leucocyets, epithelial cells 1/hpf and non squamous epi cell. There's no bacteria. What does this indicate?

My urinalysis results show: occasional leucocyets, epithelial cells 1/hpf and non squamous epi cell. There's no bacteria. What does this indicate?

"possibly a UTI": While this could represent a lower urinary tact infection, this would most likely represent a contaminated specimen (especially a voided specimen in a female).
Most urologists are cautious about "treating the urinalysis" and would follow with a urine culture and sensitivity. ...Read more

Pls interpret vagina gram stain reslt. Gm Stain (-), Polymorphonuclear-Moderate, Epi cells-Moderate, Gm (+)Cocci pairs-Few, Gm (+)bacili-Mod, Gm (-)bacili-rare?

Probably normal: It's hard to give you a definitive answer without seeing it and knowing what was causing your diarrhea, but the vagina normally has bacteria present (all the Gm + and - categories) and some polymorphonuclear cells (neutrophils). The gram+ bacilli are most likely lactobacillus, the normal flora of the vagina. The epithelial cells are simply the lining of the vagina. ...Read more

Can be all kinds of: Issues, called differential diagnosis: https://www. Google. Com/search?

What are LE cells?

LE Cells: A neutrophil or macrophage (type of white blood cell) that has been engulfed the denatured nuclear material of another cell. The denatured material is an absorbed hematoxylin body (also called an LE body). They are a characteristic of lupus erythematosus, but also found in similar connective tissue disorders.

What are b-cells and its functions?

What are b-cells and its functions?

Antibodies: B cells are immune cells that develop in the Bone marrow and mature in the lymphoid organs. They make antibodies that protect our bodies from foreign invaders such as viruses. Most vaccines work by stimulating our body's B cells to make antibodies so that they can already be present to protect us when we are exposed to an actual viral infection. ...Read more

What are T cells?

What are T cells?

Type of lymphocyte: When lymphocytes were first recognized as a small population of the white blood cells, Bob Good divided them into T and B cells. The T cells were matured in the Thymus and the B cells in the Bursa of Fabricius found in the chicken. The B cells produce antibody andthe T cells contain cells ie. Th 1, making IL2 and the Th2 IL 10. The TH 1 targets bacteria and viruses. ...Read more

What are B cells and T cells?

What are B cells and T cells?

White blood cells: B-cells make antibodies. Each single B-cell, after maturing by modifying its DNA, produces one type of antibody that is specific for a single target. If the body decides that it is a good antibody, the B-cell moves to the bone marrow making that antibody for years. Some T-cells kill damaged cells (eg after viral infection or pre-tumor cells). Other T-cells act as messenger guiding inflammation ...Read more

Helper t cells do what?

Helper t cells do what?

Manage immunity: Helper T cells are unit commanders that instruct soldiers on the front lines. They help B cells secrete protective antibodies. They help "killer" T cells attack infected cells. They also influence the "flavor" of the immune response to favor more of an allergic-type response versus more of a flu-like response. They are CD4 positive cells that are destroyed in HIV/AIDS leading to immunodeficiency. ...Read more

Cell transformation: Metaplasia represents transformation of cells from a normal to an abnormal state. It is felt that tumors begin in a field and normal appearing cells begin transformation to the premalignant state by producing tumor proteins.
