Since my liver biopsy showed fatty liver, why is my actin antibody 62 then 54? I am 64yr old f with type 2 diabetes & overweight. Why actin anti so hi
Autoantibody. Anti-actin/anti-smooth muscle antibody is an indication of autoimmunity and may be related to the fatty change. Please see this site for information and discuss the matter with your doctor who likely has more information. Http://labtestsonline. Org/understanding/analytes/asma/tab/test.
Just an association. Assuming your actin antibody is actually a f-actin smooth muscle antibody (asma or sma) this is checked in patients as a chronic liver disease workup. There is an overlap and association with the asma and fatty liver disease seen in up to 20% of those with fatty liver disease. You might even have a positive ANA also. Nothing to be worried about. You can ignore it (if you only have fatty liver)!
