Urgent! dr. Martin r,  TB heal 10yrs, last wk qtf-g+, nil0.13 iu/ml, mitogen-nil\u0026gt;10, tb-nil 4.3, active tb? Gamma globulin2.2, unshapen stool

TB: Active tuberculosis is characterized by fever, night sweats, chills, weight loss and dysfunction or inflammatory changes in the area of the body affected. You seem to be fixated on the possibility that you have this and it is very unlikely. If you continue to be otc about this either go and see a doctor or perhaps a psychiatrist or psychologist. Good luck. It is very doubtful you have active tb. ...Read more

Ha stool test done, results endolimax nana trophozoites, entamoeba hartmanni trophozoites. What is that meant? Where could i got that bacteria?

Amoeba: These are not bacteria but rather amoeba that are found in the intestines of various animals, including the species e. Nana found in humans. Originally thought to be non-pathogenic, studies suggest it can cause intermittent or chronic diarrhea. You most likely acquired this from unsanitary water. ...Read more

Wife feeds stray cat in our woodsy CT yard. cat's friendly non-aggressive. no tags or collar. Cat licked my leg, should I b worried for rabies?

Wife feeds stray cat in our woodsy CT yard. cat's friendly non-aggressive. no tags or collar. Cat licked my leg, should I b worried for rabies?

Not to worry.: Since the rabies virus affects the nervous system, rabid animals generally display abnormal behavior. The virus can be transmitted via contact with the affected animal's saliva, usually through a bite. Theoretically, saliva from a rabid animal could infect a human if the saliva entered an open wound. In this instance, the animal was unlikely to be rabid and no mention was made of an open wound. ...Read more

Can 16s sequencing of my intestinal bacteria identify any/all of following infections: h. Pylori, c. Jejuni, toxoplasma gondii?

Can 16s sequencing of my intestinal bacteria identify any/all of following infections:  h. Pylori, c. Jejuni, toxoplasma gondii?

Yes but...: Dna sequencing can identify most of the bacteria and also the % of those present. What you are going to use this for is perhaps the most important question and where are they located? I would check with your physician, find out what testing facility they are using and how extensive is the test. Some of the test only look for a few of the bacteria and don't measure them all. ...Read more

Typhoid: A single widal test in an unvaccinated patient showing h and/or o titres greater than or equal to 1:160 and typhoid-like symptoms is strongly suggestive of typhoid fever. It also appears that h titre is more useful than o titre. More false positives are found than false negatives. Under these circumstances, the clinical picture is the decisive factor in making a diagnosis of typhoid. ...Read more

EBV early antigen Ab, IgG <9; EBV Eb, VcA, IgG >600; EBV nuclear antigen Ab IgG 108. Diagnossed with CAEBV infection. Does this sound right to you?

EBV early antigen Ab, IgG <9; EBV Eb, VcA, IgG >600; EBV nuclear antigen Ab IgG 108. Diagnossed with CAEBV infection. Does this sound right to you?

Maybe.: The profile is of a past infection. I am not sure if it can be diagnosed just by symptoms and evidence of past infection. I think you would need the second criteria of diagnosis which is DNA of EBV in peripheral tissue or blood detectable through PCR test with a low anti-EA. Have other diagnoses like Lyme's been tested for? ID specialist. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3245398/ ...Read more

Additional facts: Although the inoculation period runs from 15 days to more than 1 year, if an encephalitic form occurs, it will likely affect salivary glands in 10-14 days, and you are well past that. The paralytic form has a prodrome of bad headache and spiking fever, associated with pharyngeal spasms, delirium, agitation, and progressive weakness, 2-10 days after initial symptoms. Based on this, you are safe. ...Read more

Hydrophobia: You need to go and be seen and evaluated by a physician. If you are in Manila go to PGH or Makati Med Ctr and see an infectious disease specialist. Rabies 10 years after a bite is very improbable, and unless you have acute psychosis from typhoid, hydro and aerophobia would be quite unusual. This needs detailed assessment by a knowledgeable clinician. Go soon and I hope this will be cleared up soon ...Read more

Alkaline Phosphatase 129 / C-Reactive Protein 13.2 / Ebv Nuclear Antigen Ab & Ebv Ab Vca, Igg >600 / Dr. says no worries but should I be concerned?

Alkaline Phosphatase 129 / C-Reactive Protein 13.2 / Ebv Nuclear Antigen Ab & Ebv Ab Vca, Igg >600 /  Dr. says no worries but should I be concerned?

Depends: 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 C-reactive protein is elevated suggesting inflammation. you may wish to repeat the test in 6 months or so. Your doctor knows more about your health and you should follow his/her advice. ...Read more
