Understanding The Fibromyalgia Blood Test

Sharing is caring!

Fibromyalgia Blood Test

Fibromyalgia is an adamant health condition whose diagnosis and treatment is hard. Perhaps this is the reason why numerous health experts have dedicated their time, energy and brain power into trying to solve the mystery that is Fibromyalgia. Though the breakthroughs have been slow, there have been some progress that enable us to diagnose the condition and understand, at the least, its extremities in a patient. One such progress has been the Fibromyalgia Blood Test being the first blood test to have been developed. 

Facts about Fibromyalgia Blood Test

The Fibromyalgia Blood Test called the APA Assay, is a Fibromyalgia diagnostic test that has been developed to detect the anti-polymer antibodies in the human serum. The APA stands for Anti-Polymer Antibodies. Since it is a fairly new concept, extensive information about the blood test is unavailable though solutions are being found for that as well.

The findings of the blood test are based on certain patterns that scientists have found in Fibromyalgia patients. According to certain studies, in patients suffering from severe Fibromyalgia, a high number of anti-polymer antibodies are present. Some studies have linked the cause of Fibromyalgia to blood vessels present in the hands and therefore this blood test is expected to open ways for new breakthroughs in detecting the cause of the disease.

Researches are still unaware of why these antibodies are present in Fibromyalgia patients however they hope to find answers soon. Till then, the Fibromyalgia Blood Test is supposed to give a better diagnosis to patients leading to better precautions. But we must mention that this test is yet to receive the Food and Drug Administration. It is still undergoing some clinical trials and would soon be considered for approval.

We hope you found this information helpful, and if you believe someone else could benefit from it, please share. Thank you!
