CHROMOGRANIN A

Kan u asseblief vir my sê wat alles Chromogranin A in die bloed kan verhoog. My telling bly konsekwent oor die laaste 3 jaar verhoog (sowat 60% bo die boonste verwysing). Ons het alles ondersoek: CT, MIGB, MRI, OTEORIEDE SKANDERING, PSA, VASTENDE GLUKOSE. Soms is die urinie catecholomine verhoog, dan weer die 5-HIAA.

Maar iets kruip weg! Het u dalk enige idees?

Baie dankie

Hallo Hugo
Sien http://www.bccancer.bc.ca/HPI/CancerManagementGuidelines/TumourMarkers/CgA.htm
Dit lyk tog of jou dokter mooi gaan soek het vir enige tumore en niks kon vind nie.
Ek sien dit kan ook verhoog met stress ( soos ook die catecholamines) . 5HIAA kan beinvloed word deur kos, en medikasie en is ook gewoonlik verhoog met endokriene ( klierkanker) en mastositose ( 'n tipe allergiese reaksie waar jou allergie selle bietjie oor-entoesiasties is)

SIEN OOK
Drugs that can increase 5-HIAA measurements include acetanilid, phenacetin, glyceryl guaiacolate (found in many cough syrups), methocarbamol, and reserpine.
Drugs that can decrease 5-HIAA measurements include chlorpromazine, heparin, imipramine, isoniazid, levodopa, monoamine oxidase inhibitors, methenamine, methyldopa, phenothiazines, promethazine, and tricyclic antidepressants.
Foods that can interfere with 5-HIAA measurements include plums, pineapples, bananas, eggplant, tomatoes, avocados, and walnuts. Do not eat them for 3 days before the test.
