I got copies of my test results. Just because I am not sure what my dr is thinking. Anyway I have a question on the complement CH50 levels.. Mine test result was greater than 60..
My Complement Component was 152 mg/dl
My Complement C4 was 41mg/dl
Also had a Gastrin test it was 11 pg/ml..
All my lymphocytes are in the normal ranges, So is white blood count etc... I was wondering should I be concerned with this complement CH50 level???? I have read it could mean cancer or infections. But like I said my dr made no mention of this test result he just told me all results were normal. I am concerned and dont know what to do at all.. Thanks for any help you may be able to provide
As your doctor has said the levels are normal. In cancer and other serious infections, the values would be at least twice to thrice this level. If your symptoms are under control, then please do not worry too much about this. Take care!
