Depression test accurate

Common Questions and Answers about Depression test accurate


Avatar f tn Your test results are reason to celebrate not as a basis for depression. Both tests are very accurate at the times that you took them and mean that the chance that you have HIV is virtually nil. You should expect your final 3 month test to be negative.
5368438 tn?1366988615 I'm not sure if those test we're accurate so I came on this site to ask people who do have depression if this is depression. I have low self-esteem. I'm always downing myself. I don't consider myself to be beautiful, gorgeous or anything--that's why when people call me stuff like that I let it go in one ear and out the other. I rarely post pictures of myself to the internet because I'm afraid people will make fun of me so Instead I used cartoons or pictures of celebrities.
Avatar f tn My biggest concern is that I have been diagnosed with diabetes after 2 glucose levels and an A1C level that may not be accurate. I've always had low blood sugars (and, in fact, have a problem with my sugar bottoming out when I don't eat right); my eating habits of the last few months have been somewhat erratic because of a serious depression I'm dealing with. I'm not on any of the meds that increasing sugar, but my appetite has increased. What tests are normally done to diagnose diabetes?
Avatar m tn hello!!!! I have been tested for Anti-HIV screen test and it shows Negative is this enough that shows I am not infected? It is a rapid test.... My 1st and 2nd exposure was last 2008 (more than 2yrs) and the last exposure was on 2009 (almost 1yr or 11months to be exact) should i move on? or this is just paranoia/anxiety strikes me? thanks alot for your concern! GOD BLESS US ALL....
Avatar n tn keep your own folder with copies of tests, tests reports, etc. they don't usually test for hep c if you complain of joint pain, the first time around. you need to ask them what you were tested for.
Avatar f tn At my regular check up my dr found st depression. he wants me to have a stress test I am female, 49, not overweight, no diabetes, take toprol 25 for high blood pressure which manages it. Haven't had a cigarette for 15 years do'nt drink ( a glass or two of wine a week). Eat healthy. I panic at doctors and my heart rate during the test was 93 as opposed to my normal 60. I'm very stressed and don't want to go down the rabbit hole of testing if not necessary.
Avatar n tn He says you cannot even tell I have had a heart attack. A year ago I had a thalium stress test and that, too, showed my heart functionning 'perfectly'. The two treadmill tests I took show me coming out with flying colours (well, yes, I am very fit). However, I have had lots of chest discomfort, especially with emotional stress, which I cannot seem to handle at all anymore without experiencing symptoms.
5708149 tn?1372878122 could the blood that gave the high tsh have rendered wrong results since they tested it a day or two later, could the machine not be accurate, could the abnormal TSH test be abnormal because I was going to start my period that week? They are now sending off my most recent blood (with the normal TSH) off to another lab to be tested, but if it is normal, what does that tell me? Out of the past year, one of three showed me to be hypothyroid, but the others were normal. What is your take on this?
Avatar n tn i had an DNA PCR test done exactly 9-10days period after the possible exposure and the concerned doctor told me after 72hrs (3days) would be sufficient to confirm and usally results are accurate. can any one tell me how do they do the test and why is there a possibility of a false positive. please help cause this dilema is killing me.
Avatar f tn I wake up about 3 out of 7 days with a headache and feel sick all day....fatigue, muscle weakness, irritable. I am taking dextroamphetamine for fatigue and lorazepam to sleep. I believe I have something physical going on because I have had positive blood test results and a "possible connective tissue" diagnosis, but nothing specific. Lately I bring up negative things at work and can't say anything positive and I cry very easily (at home) because I don't feel good.
Avatar f tn My main questions is, would taking a pregnancy test today be accurate? Do I have to wait until next month when I usually get my period? Should I be concerned? I do not have health insurance and going to a doctor or OBGYN would be very expensive for me.
Avatar n tn I have bouts of anxiety and depression. I heard that gluten can be a link to causing these, as well as excess sugar in the diet. Is this true? I eat a lot of sugars, breads, and pastas and am considering a change in diet to help.
Avatar m tn Just wanted to give you an update. I did the urine test for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and blood test for Syphilis through LapCorp Services (quite expensive $229 value for testing of the three). All three came back negative non reactive. Haven't gathered the courage to test for HIV yet but I'll do that in coming weeks. Your insight and comments were really helpful.
Avatar n tn TSH taken 6/2/03 5.33 TSH taken 6/13/03 2.32 TSH taken 11/15/03 3.58 TSH taken 6/21/04 3.39 TSH taken 5/5/05 4.52 (and started .25mcg levothroixine TSH taken 6/14/05 2.24 TSH taken 7/28/05 2.49 (increased to .50 mcg levothroixine) TSH taken 8/8/05 4.15 On 10/17 I called my doctor and asked her to increase me to .75 mcg and was also changed to synthroid. I go in tomorrow to discuss all of this with her and find out if she has any record of T3 and T4 levels.
Avatar f tn Apathy can be part of depression. People think that depression is only just being sad, it's much more complex. Apathy, anger, mood swings, states of manic, and sadness can all be feelings of depression. Now when it comes to depression there are lots of causes. Hormonal -thyroid disorders, straight serotonin problems, etc and these usually take medication of some kind. The other is environmental -so excess stress, seasons, or having a lot of things go wrong with your body at once.
Avatar f tn For instance mitral valve prolapse (a common and most often benign condition) can cause the depression. You can of course doubt everything but I would trust the test. Those examiners are normally very experienced and do rarely displace a lead. I would go see the cardiologist for this depression as well as for the (probably benign) APC's.
Avatar n tn Depression is a known symptom of low thyroid. Is it the only cause for depression? certainly not. But it is AWEFULLY coincidental that when you have half of your thyroid removed and you then become depressed that it would seem at least possible that the depression could be related to insufficient thyroid. T4 only does not work for everybody. But it is also possible that you simply were under medicated with the T4 only dosage.
901137 tn?1267629789 I'm glad you clarified the diagnosis as I strongly believe your doc is wrong. The test is accurate and gives a better picture. Often if we've seen a doc for some years, like I have too, we become friendly and tend to be very relaxed and even joking with them. I do every time, I llok forward to that short meeting as I know it'll have some laughs in it. This can of course give the doc a different impression of us than reality at home.
Avatar n tn Everyone I have ever known or heard of that got off any opiates was left with severe depression. Is this a standard side effect and how long will it last and how is it best treated? My friend's nephew just went to an addiction doctor who gave him buprenorphine injections and other scripts to get off pain pills. When he asked about an anti-depressant the doctor said "no mood enhancers for addicts." This seems unusual to me.
Avatar m tn That is the depression talking.I just watched a documentary on depression yesterday at 4am (couldn't sleep due to MY depression ha ha). It was people from all walks of life battling it. From a gang member to corporate execs. You know what, now they can see depression! MRI's can see the activity on the frontal lobe of the brain. I won't go into the mumbo jumbo, I am a nurse and I get fascinated by this stuff but they are on the edge many new treatments that don't involve meds. Hallelujah!
Avatar n tn In a patient at high risk for CAD (for example, because of advanced age or multiple coronary risk factors), an abnormal stress test is quite accurate (over 90% accurate or approximately 10% false negative) in predicting the presence of CAD. I agree a relatively normal stress test may not mean there is an absence of significant coronary artery disease in a patient with the same high risk factors ( "false negative") stress test....
Avatar f tn If so many problems exist with this test why are they still used. I understand the western blot test are far more accurate and give you a positive or negative result. It seems it is very difficult to obtain this test and labs are confused when asked for this test. The depression caused by this disease can be quite overwhelming and destroy marriages and families. I also find most Dr. quite insensitive or annoyed when results are questioned.
458384 tn?1295724256 The Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HAM-D) and the Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS), two widely used depression scales, each have unique advantages and limitations for research. The HAM-D's limited sensitivity and multidimensionality have been criticized, despite the scale's popularity. The MADRS, designed to be sensitive to treatment changes, is briefer and more uniform. A limitation of the MADRS is the lack of a structured interview, which may affect reliability.
Avatar f tn My strength/ stamina, become low unlike when I was not hypothyroid. Depression @ my depression are always there but not too much as long I can handle I fair is always there. One thing I want to know and trying find my self is about my symptoms goes up & down. Normal the other day not good I feel weak. The important as long I have my maintenance pills @ & I can move all the time, my mind are clear that wil be great.
Avatar f tn Hi There, It is over 90% accurate although you will need a Duo Test at the 28th day to confirm. If your 12/13 day test came back below the viral load threshold, it is so likely that your Duo test will be negative!:) What was your exposure?
Avatar f tn In any case, by getting that dose WAY down and staying there, unless I begin to feel strange by not having enough adrenal replacement in my system, the re-test they do will be real close to accurate. I'd go all the way off, but if I really do have an adrenal problem, I could actually pass out, go into a coma, and die. Ye gads. Nobody in our family ever had this problem, and I live a normal life, so I just cannot understand how this could happen.
Avatar n tn Besides I don't think the doctors would even give me a referral even if I begged them, as long as the blood test results come back normal! I'm a bit reluctant to pay for this medical testing as I wonder if it will reveal nothing just like that done here to date, but I guess I will never know unless I do it. Do you have some experience in dealing with Hepatologists?
Avatar m tn Over the last year I've been diagnosed with Lot T, Vit D deficiency, B-12 deficieny and taking therapy for that but still not feeling good After reviewing this site for the last year and a half I'm confident that my results are accurate and conclusive but wanted to aske a few questions specific to my situation. 1. Can I consider these tests accurate and conclusive especially for HIV and Syphilis? 2.
