Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

The LE cells test is a blood test that screens for the presence of circulating immune complexes (CICs). CICs are proteins that are produced when the body's immune system breaks down immune complexes. These proteins can be detected in the blood and are a marker for autoimmune disease.

The LE cells test is used to diagnose lupus erythematosus, a chronic autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system attacks healthy tissue. The LE cells are a type of white blood cell that is involved in the inflammatory response.

People with autoimmune diseases have higher than-normal levels of lymphocytes in their blood. The LE Cell test can help diagnose LE, as well as other autoimmune diseases. It can also be used to monitor the disease and see how well it is responding to treatment.

In general, a normal LE cell count is between 4,000 and 11,000 cells per microliter. This can vary slightly from lab to lab.

There are a few things you can do to lower your LE cell test level.

  • First, you can try to reduce the amount of stress in your life. Stress can cause your body to produce more white blood cells, which can lead to an increase in your LE cell test level. Try to find ways to relax and reduce stress in your life.
  • Second, you can try to boost your immune system. A strong immune system can help to fight off infections and diseases, which can help to keep your LE cells test level down. You can try eating foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals, exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep.
  • Third, there are a number of medications that can help to suppress the immune system, which may help to lower your LE cell test level. Your doctor will be able to advise you on whether or not this is a good option for you.
