Find an analysis that can reveal the cause of recurrent miscarriage



Analysis of cardiolipin antibodies is one of the tests that help to find out the cause if you suffer from blood clotting or abnormal bleeding or if you have had repeated miscarriages, and through the series "Reassure yourself" we learn about this analysis that reveals the cause of recurrent miscarriage and bleeding.


What is a cardiolipin antibody test?

 

The cardiolipin antibody test looks for a specific type of antibody in the blood, and the antibody is a substance in your blood that helps fight infection. Blood clots occur.


Platelets, which are the blood cells that help the blood to clot, are also used, which leads to bleeding problems.


Levels of these antibodies are often elevated in people with abnormal blood clotting, autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus, or recurrent miscarriages.


The importance of the cardiolipin antibody test

 

You may need this test if you often have abnormal blood clotting or abnormal bleeding if you have had repeated miscarriages.


Also, people with certain autoimmune diseases such as SLE have antibodies to cardiolipin in their blood. This test can be used to help diagnose this disease.


When high levels of cardiolipin antibodies are found in people with these or other problems, it is known as cardiolipin antibody syndrome. This test helps diagnose this condition.


What other tests might you take with this test?

 

The cardiolipin antibody test is usually one of several tests that can be done to verify the cause of your symptoms.


The tests that you get depend on what your doctor is looking for. For example, if your doctor thinks you have SLE, you may need other blood tests.


These other tests may include:


Complete blood cell count


Partial thromboplastin time and activated prothromboplastin time These tests monitor how your blood clots.


Antinuclear antibody test. These antibodies have been found in people with lupus.


Antiphospholipid antibody test: These antibodies have been found in people with abnormal blood clots.


Ultrasound, to look for clots in the arteries or veins


What do the test results mean?

The results of the cardiolipin antibody test are easy to understand if you have a negative effect on the cardiolipin antibody this is normal.


 If you are positive, you may have cardiolipin antibody syndrome and you will likely be retested to see if the antibody remains in your blood. You may need to wait up to 12 weeks between each test period.
