Understanding Cardiolipin Antibody Panel (IgA IgG IgM) in Trimulgherry
What is Cardiolipin Antibody Panel (IgA IgG IgM) in Trimulgherry?
Cardiolipin Antibody Panel (IgA IgG IgM) detects antibodies produced against cardiolipins (phospholipids responsible for blood clotting) to determine the cause of abnormal blood clotting, frequent miscarriages in women, or as part of detecting antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). APS is a condition where the immune system produces excessive antiphospholipid antibodies against body tissues, causing abnormal clotting of blood. Additionally, this test may help diagnose other autoimmune disorders like SLE and help evaluate the risk for thrombotic heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, etc. A positive test is usually repeated 12 weeks later to reassess their presence. If a person with a known autoimmune disorder tests negative for cardiolipin antibodies, they may be re-tested to check for the presence of these antibodies in the future.
