Hi there, I hope you can help. I am thinking these results maybe affecting my failed outcomes, can you settle my mind, please

%CD3 - 76.6
%CD19 - 14.4 #
%CD56 - 9.0
%CD19 + CELLS CD5+ - 19.4#

# marked are raised, can you explain these and if treatment is required.
Many thanks.

seems the only issue here is elevation of the B1 cells(19/5) which could signify an autoantibody problem. To determine treatment however I would need a full history as this is just one small aspect of the workup.

Thank you for your reply.
What is an auto antibody problem?
I have 2 children already and i am trying IVF for gender selection but haven't been successful. I have had the whole immune panel workout and everything else is normal. My TSH was elevated at 2.83.
What sort of treatment is used for an auto antibody problem?
Many Thanks

Im sorry but without seeing all of your results I cant give you an opinion. There are times the B1 cells are elevated and there is no signficance. Auto antibodies are any antibodies against your self. such as ANA , anti thyroid, APA to name a few. If you have 2 children it makes it less likely that this is an issue, but does not rule it out as this could have developed after your children were born.

you can call me and set up a brief 10 min chat (there is no charge) and we can decide if you need my services and at that point I can tell you what you would need to send me.
