ACE blood test - ஏசிஇ இரத்த சோதனை

The ACE test measures the level of Angiotensin Converting enzyme (ACE) in the blood.

Alternative Names
Serum angiotensin-converting enzyme; SACE

How the Test is Performed  -டெஸ்ட் எப்படி செய்யப்படுகிறது
A blood sample is needed.

How to Prepare for the Test - டெஸ்ட்க்கு தயாராவது பற்றிய விபரம்
Follow your health care provider's instructions for not eating or drinking anything for up to 12 hours before the test. If you are on steroid medicine, ask your provider if you need to stop the medicine before the test, because steroids can decrease ACE levels. Do not stop any medicine before talking to your provider.

How the Test will Feel
When the needle is inserted to draw blood, some people feel moderate pain. Others feel only a prick or stinging. Afterward, there may be some throbbing or slight bruising. These soon go away.

Why the Test is Performed - ஏன் சோதனை செய்ய வேண்டும்
This test is commonly ordered to help diagnose and monitor a disorder called sarcoidosis. People with sarcoidosis may have their ACE level tested regularly to check how severe the disease is and how well treatment is working.

This test also helps confirm
·         Gaucher disease (கொசேர் டிஸீஸ்)
·         Leprosy  (லெப்ரொஸீ – தொழுநோய்)

Normal Results (நார்மல் ரிஸல்ட்ஸ்)
Normal values vary based on your age and the test method used. Adults have an ACE level less than 40 micrograms/L.
Normal value ranges may vary slightly among different laboratories. Some labs use different measurements or test different samples. Talk to your doctor about the meaning of your specific test results.

Abnormal Results
Higher than normal ACE level may be a sign of sarcoidosis. ACE level rises or falls as sarcoidosis worsens or improves.

A higher than normal ACE level may also be seen in several other diseases and disorders, including:
·         Cancer of the lymph tissue (Hodgkin disease) (நிணநீர் திசு புற்றுநோய்)
·         Diabetes (நீரிழிவு)
·         Liver swelling and inflammation (hepatitis) due to alcohol use (கல்லீரல் அழற்சி)
·         Lung disease such as (நுரையீரல் நோய்)  Asthma (ஆஸ்துமா)
·         chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (க்ராநிக் அப்ஸ்ட்ரக்டிவ் பல்மரி டிஸீஸ்
·         tuberculosis (காசநோய்) , cancer,
·         Kidney disorder called nephrotic syndrome (சிறுநீரக கோளாறு)
·         Multiple sclerosis (மல்டிபல் ஸ்க்லீரோஸிஸ்)
·         Overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism) (ஹைபர் தைராய்டிம்)

Lower than normal ACE level may indicate:
·         Chronic liver disease (நாள்பட்ட கல்லீரல் நோய்)
·         Eating disorder called anorexia nervosa (ஈடிங் டிஸார்டர் அநோரெக்சியா நர்வசா)
·         Steroid therapy (usually prednisone) (ஸ்டீராய்டு சிகிச்சை)
·         Therapy for sarcoidosis)
·         Underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) (அன்டர் ஆக்டிவ் தைராய்டு)

Risks (விளைவுகள்)
Veins and arteries vary in size from one patient to another and from one side of the body to the other. Obtaining a blood sample from some people may be more difficult than from others.

The risks associated with having blood drawn are slight but may include:
·         Excessive bleeding (அதிக இரத்தப்போக்கு)
·         Fainting or feeling lightheaded (மயக்கம் அல்லது தலைவலி)
·         Hematoma (blood accumulating under the skin) (இரத்தக்கட்டி)
·         Infection (a slight risk any time the skin is broken)( நோய்த்தொற்று)
