My name is Sofia and I am 24 yrs. old.
I recently had a blood test and urine test and the result is as follows
MCHC - 319 g/L
Ala. Aminotransferase (ALT) - 35 U/L
Asp. Aminotransferase (AST) - 32 U/L
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin - 17 nmol/L
Serum C - reactive protein (CRP) - 16 mg/L
Serum complement (C3) - 2.01 g/L
Serum complement (C4) - 0.41 g/L
After these result, the doctor has recommended for another blood test. They are as follows
Test Requested - U/E, FBE, ESR, ENA, C3, C4, CRP
Clinical notes - High ESR, CRP, C3C4 for investigation
Also, she advised me for an Ultrasound scan - Pelvis
I really didn't understand about these tests. Could you please explain?
I once had sex with my boyfriend. Does this have any connection with the blood result?
Thanks for writing to us.
I have read your case and can understand your situation.
From your blood reports it seems your doctor is most likely trying to rule out autoimmune disorders , vasculitis, SLE, Sjögren's syndrome and hepatitis .
Since your C3,C4,CRP and B12 are reportedly high your doctor asked you to do ENA, repeat C3,C4 ,Fbe, u/e to check kidney functions and autoimmune status .
It is advisable for you to get these reports done and get evaluated clinically to detect the problem /reason of high B12,C3,C4and CRP.
USG pelvis may have been asked to rule out pregnancy, pcos state and for ruling out other pathologies related to reproductive system.
Hope this helps
