Patient : I am very concerned about some abnormal test results that my doctor failed to mention to me. I have 3 healthy children, my youngest is 8. I am now 34 years old and I became pregnant last year and miscarried in Feb 2011. I have been trying to become pregnant since the miscarriage and have had at least 2 early losses since. My doctor ran a battery of test and most came back normal except for the Lupus Anticoagulant screenings. The Ruseell Viper Venom, came back as 44.7 sec and the PTT LA came back as 51.3 sec which the lab marked as abnormal. I do have occasional bleeding from my GI tract and when I miscarried I bled profusely. What should I do, get another doctor?
