If you are scared that you have diabetes, then simply get your blood sugar levels - fasting (empty stomach for minimum 8 - 10 hours) and post prandial (sugar levels after 2 hours of eating food) along with hbaic levels (reflect your previous 3 months average glucose levels) done. From these tests you can determine whether you have diabetes or not.

REPORTING PLATELET COUNTS IN DENGUE – MANUAL OR AUTOMATED ? Which is more reliable ?

MD - Pathology
Pathologist, Noida
REPORTING  PLATELET COUNTS IN DENGUE – MANUAL OR AUTOMATED ? Which is more reliable ?
 Platelets are the smallest type of blood cells. They are important in blood clotting. When bleeding occurs, the platelets swell, clump together, and form a sticky plug that helps stop the bleeding. If there are too few platelets, uncontrolled bleeding may be a problem.
In the current season, dengue is not the only cause of decrease in platelet counts. Other causes like malaria, other viral infections, Vitamin B12 and folate defiiency etc can also cause reduction in platelet counts. That said, dengue patients may also clinically present without any decrease in platelet counts.

It is well-known that thrombocytopenia ( reduction in platelet counts) is one of the critical parameters in patient management. Therefore, it is very important that laboratories assess platelet counts with utmost accuracy. The normal range of platelet count in a healthy adult individual is 150000 - 400000/μL. Babies and children have different reference ranges.compared to adults Therefore please check on the lab report for normal age wize reference range. A count of 1.5 lacs would be considered as normal in adults but would qualify as decreased count in a child.

Platelets can be counted either on automated machines( automated method) or on manual blood smear by pathologist.(manual method).

Generally hospitals and laboratories measure platelet counts on automated hematology analyzers- as .these are simple to use and give fast results.However, they suffer from a very big disadvantage. This disadvantage is based on the principle on which these machines work.The machines are programmed in such a manner that any blood particle falling within a predermined size range is counted as platelet and above this range is counted as red cell(RBC – which contains hemoglobin and is responsible for red colour of blood).Although this concept works well in majority of cases, but machine readings are seldom reliable , especially when platelet counts are below 30,000/ cmm. Giant platelets will be counted as RBCs and the machine will give a factitiously low reading of platelets. - Again , if the sample has not been properly mixed at the time of collection, platelets will stick and form clumps. Again the size of these clumps will be more than that of individual platelets and machine will count these as RBCs , thus give a falsely low platelet count. Also, if the sample is collected in a periphery and takes a lot of time to reach the main lab , by this time the platelets would have swelled up due to presence of additives in the blood tube, and not be counted in platelets.but as RBCs instead. (due to size factor)
So what is the solution, ?
All such cases, where platelets are reported low on analyzers, must be screened on peripheral smear by pathologist. Only on looking at the peripheral smear , will the pathologist be able to confirm whether the platelet counts are actually low or not.

Summary : The analyzer is reliable in majority of cases . However, for all cases with low platelets, manual screening by a pathologist is must for confirmation and to avoid unnecessary panic and unrequired platelet transfusions.

Hi I am 28 year old I have a problem of hiv aids, and from last 7 month I had reduced about 17 kg of weight but also my cd 4 count is 630 and some doctor suggest me that to start hiv medicine also some doctor suggest me to start after my cd4 count come below 350 but still I don't have any disease or any problem except weight loss, so please suggest me what should I do

MD - Pathology
Pathologist, Noida
A normal cd4 count ranges from 500? 1, 200 cells/mm3 in adults/adolescents. Hiv medicine is recommended for everyone with hiv, but the urgency to start hiv medicine is greater in people with low or rapidly falling cd4 counts. When the amount of hiv in your blood is lowered by art (hiv medication), it allows the cd4 cells to reproduce and increase in number. The higher your cd4 count, the better able you are to fight hiv and other infections.

What are the various tests that a t2 diabetic should do on a regular basis and what is the timeframe to be followed? this is for my mother who is on bedtime tresiba (8 units ave.) and also takes galvusmet 500/50 mg twice daily and amaryl 2mg twice daily.

MD - Pathology
Pathologist, Noida
First thing is to decide whether your sugar levels are controlled (within range) or not. - means that sugar fasting, post prandial should all be within normal range. This needs to be supplemented by hbaic test - done 3 monthly, to check preceding sugar levels. Again a baseline lft, kidney panel are a must and based on abnormal parameters in these tests, further course to be decided.

I am 42 years old and had fasting glucose level of 5.15 mmol/l. The last gtt showed that after two hours of taking food the glucose level is still high. My family had hereditary diabetic signs. I would like to ask you, if I am prone to diabetics at any stage. I weight 68 kgs with height 5.2.

MD - Pathology
Pathologist, Noida
In your case, your fasting levels are below 6.1 mmol/l (110mg%). Only your pp levels are increased. You have not mentioned the exact value. Diabetes to be diagnosed only if you have some clinical symptoms of diabetes (like incresed thirst, increased urination etc), along with fasting glucose values more than 126 mg%, pp values more than 200 mg%, and/or hbaic test > 6.5%. So, based on the above criteria you currently do not have diabetes. However, since you have a strong family history of diabetes, it is likely, that you may develop diabetes later on. You need to get your tested at regular intervals and be observant for any clinical symptoms also.

MD - Pathology

Your fasting levels are still to high and need to be brought under control. Your medicine for diabetes is either not effective/ or your dosage needs to be changed. Please consult a endocrinologist to control your fasting sugar levels. What are your hbaic levels? your cholesterol is also on the borderline high range. Please get a complete lipid profile done and share the results.

What is the hepatitis c?

MD - Pathology
Pathologist,
Hepatitis c is a virus that attacks your liver. After hepatitis b, it is next most common hepatitis, but most difficult to treat. The virus spreads through the blood or body fluids of an infected person. You can catch it from: sharing drugs and needles having sex, especially if you have an std, an hiv infection, several partners, or have rough sex being stuck by infected needles birth -- a mother can pass it to a child hepatitis c isn? t spread through food, water, or by casual contact.

Hi Alkaline phosphate content is high in my liver profile suggest why it so how to reduce it what is the danger.

MD - Pathology
Pathologist, Noida
Alkaline phosphatase(alp) levels are increased in liver and bone disorders. If your other liver tests are normal - sgot, sgpt, ggt then you can be reasonably sure that increased alp is due to bone diseases. If your alp in increased due to liver disorder, then most likely cause is obstruction to bile which is produced by the liver and stored in gall bladder). Most likely causes of obst are either gall stones or some growth obstructing flow of bile. Please let me know your usg report and status of the rest of your liver function test blood report? with your ggt levels.

I am diabetic. My fbs is always higher than pp. Why is that?

MD - Pathology
Pathologist,
The reason for this is a normal alteration in hormones experienced by many people not just people with diabetes. It is called" dawn phenomenon" the body prepares for waking up by secreting several different hormones. First, between 4: 00 and 6: 30 a. M. It secretes cortisol, epinephrine, and norepinephrine. Besides giving you a burst of energy, these hormones raise blood sugar. You aren't going to be able to make any kind of energetic response if you don't have fuel, and after a long night' s sleep, the fuel your body turns to to get you going is the glucose stored in the liver. So after these stress hormones are secreted, around 5: 30 a. M, plasma glucose and, in a normal person, insulin start to rise. Though the normal person gets a rise in insulin to help cells use the morning glucose, people with diabetes don' t, so instead of giving their cells a dose of morning energy, all they get is a rise in blood sugar.

How can we know, what is the symptoms of aids ?

MD - Pathology
Pathologist,
You cannot rely on symptoms to know whether you have HIV. The only way to know for sure if you are infected with HIV is to get tested. In early stage of HIV, the symptoms generally include : Fever (this is the most common symptom) Swollen glands Sore throat Rash Fatigue Muscle and joint aches and pains Headache In late stage of HIV infection, symptoms likely are : Rapid weight loss Recurring fever or profuse night sweats Extreme and unexplained tiredness Prolonged swelling of the lymph glands in the armpits, groin, or neck Diarrhea that lasts for more than a week Sores of the mouth, anus, or genitals Pneumonia Red, brown, pink, or purplish blotches on or under the skin or inside the mouth, nose, or eyelids Memory loss, depression, and other neurologic disorders.

Doctor what are symptoms of HIV and how will it effect?

MD - Pathology
Pathologist,
The symptoms of HIV vary, depending on the individual and what stage of the disease you are in. Within 2-4 weeks after HIV infection, many, but not all, people experience flu-like symptoms, often described as the ?worst flu ever.Symptoms can include: Fever (this is the most common symptom) Swollen glands Sore throat Rash Fatigue Muscle and joint aches and pains Headache These symptoms can last anywhere from a few days to several weeks. However, you should not assume you have HIV if you have any of these symptoms. Each of these symptoms can be caused by other illnesses as well. During this late stage of HIV infection, people infected with HIV may have the following symptoms: Rapid weight loss Recurring fever or profuse night sweats Extreme and unexplained tiredness Prolonged swelling of the lymph glands in the armpits, groin, or neck Diarrhea that lasts for more than a week Sores of the mouth, anus, or genitals Pneumonia Red, brown, pink, or purplish blotches on or under the skin or inside the mouth, nose, or eyelids Memory loss, depression, and other neurologic disorders. Each of these symptoms can be related to other illnesses also.

See, the only way to decide whether you are HIV positive or not is to go for blood tests. Now, The time it takes for a person who has been infected with HIV to show a positive test result (also known as sero converting) is commonly called the "window period. There are different types of HIV Tests, and each type has a different window period. Antibody tests ("Rapid" tests) ? give a positive result based on antibodies to HIV, not the virus itself.In about 3 months after infection, 97% of people will have positive antibody test. Antigen tests (RNA tests) ? show a positive result based on the presence of the virus. 1-3 weeks after infection, there will be enough viral material for a positive result. However, they are not routinely used. So, in your case, after 3 months of infection get yourself tested for HIV antibody (through rapid card test). If it comes negative , repeat the test after another 3 months. If it again comes negative, only then you can be reasonably sure, that you are not infected with HIV .

Is regular aspirin intake increases albumin in liver ?

MD - Pathology
Pathologist,
Albumin levels are increased due to dehydration. They are decreased due to a decrease in synthesis of the protein which is seen in severe liver failure and in conditions such as burns or renal disease that cause loss of albumin from the blood. As such, aspirin does not affect serum albumin levels. The only relation between the two, is that when aspirin is taken orally, its metabolite in the body binds to albumin.

The only way to rule out these STDs is to get yourself and your partner tested. Simple blood tests are routinely done at all the big pathology labs in your city. GET hiv, VDRL( for syphilis) done,That should suffice.

What should be threshold level of sugar in blood for the age group above 50 years ( Fating and PP) What is HbA1C1 test. What it indicates

MD - Pathology
Pathologist, Noida
There is no age wise specific reference range for glucose. WHO protocols says fasting sugar levels below 110 are normal, between 110-125 - impaired glucose tolerance, and > 126 - diabetes. Similarly for PP samples , < 140 is normal, 140-200 is impaired , > 200 is - diabetes . These tests must be repeated at least once, PLUS you must also have some clinical symptoms of diabetes. HBAic test indicates your average blood sugar levels for preceding three months.It is basically to assess whether your sugar levels were controlled during the preceding 3 months or not. Again, a Hbaic > 6.5 % is highly suggestive of diabetes.
