My 5 year old is seeing a specialist in a few weeks, but her pediatrician ordered blood work on that doctor's recommendation. I'm trying to understand what the results might mean. Mycoplasma came back in normal range. ASO was 350 (lab's high was 150). Anti DNase B was 511 (lab's high was 375). She had a positive strep culture about 2 months prior (and a few more times during the past 1 1/2 years). She was on day 9 of Augmentin for a sinus infection when she had the blood work. A side note, behavior drastically improved after 24 hrs on the antibiotics. Thanks!
I don't have a doctor treating me right now and am getting drastically sicker by the month. I can't hardly sleep at all even taking tons of downers but I am severely fatigued, mostly in my brain with chronic migraines. Anyways here are some things I noticed going through recent labs (within the past year): Elevated DNase (224) but normal ASO. High titers to all: Coxsackie A and B (valtrex did nothing to improve that) high titers to Myco. Pneumonia (doctor never addressed this) high titers to parvo IgG4 - low IgA2 - low Basophils - absent IgG p41 - present (western blot) IgM P39 - present (western blot) Very low NK cell count Low B cells Low NK cell activity / functioning B12 - too high (surprising) There's a lot going on with my cytokines but I cannot decipher any of that. My psych. is referring me to a neurologist who knows about neuro-inflammation so it's just me waiting to see if I am accepted. Also, right now my throat is extremely soar all the time and my mom checked my tonsils and said they were extremely huge and inflamed. Any thoughts on the labs? Thanks.
