What does a mono, auto score of 14.9 indicate? I have RA and my mono, auto level has been increasing over the past few months when I get my labs taken
Just one of several: Inflammatory markers. A higher monocyte score on an automated complete blood count suggests more monocytes in the peripheral blood. Monocytes are one of several inflammatory cells and can be elevated in chronic inflammation such as RA. Other markers, such as sedimentation rate or rheumatoid factor may have more prognostic significance. Your doctor/Rheumatologist will best interpret for you. ...Read more
My 3 yr old had several tests done and the IgG was 415, auto abs NRBC is 0.00, Auto Abs mono 1.19 and auto mono% 14.9. Should I worry?
Yes: The IgG is low and points to an impaired immune system. The results of the blood test do not appear to be correct (whether it is abnormal or not is another issue). You need to discuss with doctor about the problem leading to the testing being obtained in the first place. ...Read more
Is there a connection between previous exposure to epstein barr (moderate case of mono age 18) and subsequent development of auto immune problems?
Likely: Multiple sclerosis (ms) and systemic lupus erythematosus (sle) are both chronic autoimmune diseases with unknown etiology. To date, ebv is the most closely implicated infectious agent to be associated with both ms and sle. Epidemiological findings show a strong correlation between ebv infection and the risk of developing these diseases. Http://www. Futuremedicine. Com/doi/abs/10.2217/fvl.12.136. ...Read more

Mono...: …is usually caused by the Epstein Barr virus or CMV (cytomegalovirus). The initial infection typically only lasts for 2-3 weeks but the fatigue and some other symptoms can last for many months afterward and are mainly caused by the immune system’s reaction to the virus itself. If you have symptoms that are prolonged it is best to se your doctor for evaluation. Good luck! ...Read more
Define "go away"?: The clinical illness certainly fades over time in people. Years ago there was some idea that chronic fatigue was related to mono but the CDC reviewed the data and found that to be discredited. The germ involved is from a family of viruses that can hibernate in your system forever. So you can get over the illness but retain the germ in your system. You might also shed the germ intermittently. ...Read more
Forever: The virus may stay in the body forever as do some other viruses like the chickenpox virus. Most of those infected with the virus will actively shed the germ in saliva for 3-4 weeks while a few do for 3 months. Some will occasionally transiently shed the virus in saliva on and off for many years. Symptoms rarely remain after the first 3 wk-3m period. Chronic fatigue is not caused by mono. (cdc). ...Read more
Saliva: Mono is usually caused by the EB virus and for many it will happen as an unremarkable viral infection in early to mid childhood. If so you would be immune. If not, adolescent or adult mono tends to be more intense and lengthy. It can pass through the saliva of asymptomatic persons either through direct or indirect contact. ...Read more
