One of our most recent series of tests performed by our Genetecist has revolved around Ataxia Telangiectasia.
Today we were told that our daughter's "Alpha-1-Feto protein came back mildly elevated (this was a repeat test as it was previously found to be elevated) at 10 ug/L"
We are waiting for the results of the genetic testing to see if this is due to A-T, which can take weeks to months.
Just a couple questions for anyone who may have possibly been through this before:
Does anyone know of any other conditions that can cause an elevated AFP level? Does anyone else have a child who tested with elevated AFP levels?
Does anyone have any experience with A-T or has anyone else gone through the testing/diagnosis process? Did a doctor suspect A-T but it turned out to be something else?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. I find the waiting for test results to be the most exhausting part of this entire process.
I've only just seen this post and realise it was some years ago..... I am wondering what happened with your daughter. My 18 month old has the same symptoms that your daughter has, and also an elevated AFP. They are currently testing her for A-T, but said there is a small chance she has this. Obviously we are devastated. I am just wondering what happened with you, how is your daughter? Was she diagnosed correctly?
