Autoimmune Disease Screen Blood Test


This test is a comprehensive screen for autoimmune diseases and includes an antinuclear antibodies (ANA) screen, C-reactive protein (CRP), tumor necrosis factor alpha and screens for immunoglobins IgA, IgG and IgM.

SKU: LC100041 Category:

This panel contains the following tests:

  • Antinuclear Antibodies (ANA) Screen
    • A primary test to help evaluate a person for autoimmune diseases
  • Cardiac C-Reactive Protein (hs-CRP/Cardiac CRP)
    • Elevated CRP is an indication of inflammation throughout your body
  • Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha (TNFa)
    • A cytokine involved in the inflammatory process; it’s primary role is to regulate immune cells
  • Immunoglobulins IgA, IgG, IgM


Immunoglobulin Increased in these autoimmune diseases
IgG Chronic infection, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, connective tissue disease, multiple sclerosis1,2
IgM Infection, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus2
IgA Chronic infections (especially of the GI tract), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), rheumatoid arthritis, lupus2


People experience initial symptoms that are often intermittent and unspecific until a disease becomes acute. This is why it is so important to identify an autoimmune disease early while there is still time to intervene. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) estimates that up to 23.5 million Americans are living with an autoimmune disease. In comparison, cancer affects up to 9 million and heart disease up to 22 million. Researchers have identified 80-100 different autoimmune diseases and suspect at least 40 additional diseases of having an autoimmune basis.3 These diseases are chronic and can be life-threatening. In fact, the prevalence of autoimmune diseases seems to be increasing and is one of the top 10 causes of death in women up to 64 years of age.3
