I have just got back the results from the range of blood tests ordered at St Thomas' but still have a month to wait before I am back to see the doctor.
I am trying to work out which questions to ask from these results and wonder if anyone can tell me what the abnormal results point to as we are looking to see where I am on the scales.
These are the "out of range" results which I got. I have tried looking them up but don't want to misinterpret anything and am hoping that the folks on here will be able to point me in the right direction for questions!
Dilute APTT - 1.52 (0.8-1.2 ratio)
DRVVT - 2.11 (0.85 - 1.17 ratio)
IgM Anticardiolipin Antibodies - 8.1 (0.0 - 7.0 MPL U/ml)
APTT ratio - 1.6 (0.8 - 1.2 ratio)
Thrombin time ratio - 0.84 (0.86 - 1.14 ratio)
Dilute APTT Confirmatory 1.23 (0.82 - 1.10 ratio)
DRVVT Correction - 1.57 (0.9 - 1.10 ratio)
DRVVT 50:50 mix - 1.28 (0.9 - 1.07 ratio)
DRVVT Correction 50:50 mix - 1.20 (0.98 - 1.10 ratio)
Phosphate level - 0.8 (0.9 - 1.4 mmol/L)
Also, any ideas what "ToConfr" means?
Test says "centromere Abs (FIDIS) - Equivoc" What does that mean?
ANA Titre: Hep2 Nuclear Pattern - centrme
Anti nuclear antibodies - positive
I am not looking for a diagnosis here, but wonder if anyone can shed some light on these numbers for me so I am best informed on my return to St Thomas'. I like to be as well prepared and informed as I can be.
