AFP test Kirby Place can determine if a woman is carrying a child. Medical professionals use the AFP test to screen for genetic and fetal abnormalities. Alpha feto protein test Kirby Place used to assess pregnancy. Prenatal development of the fetal liver results in the production of alpha-fetoprotein. Abnormally high or low levels of alpha fetoprotein Kirby Place during pregnancy may indicate a genetic illness or a congenital abnormality (congenital disability). Pregnant women can determine whether or not their unborn child will have a higher chance of developing neural tube abnormalities or Down syndrome with a simple blood test called advanced maternal fetal screening (AFP). There is no disease or condition that this test can detect. If your results of afp blood test Kirby Place are abnormal, further evaluation is necessary to determine whether or not your unborn child has a medical condition.
Adults typically have an AFP concentration between 0 and 40 ng/mL. Liver tumors may be present if your blood AFP level exceeds 400 ng/mL
Elevated levels of AFP can sometimes indicate liver, ovarian, or testicular cancer. Although a high AFP level is not necessarily indicative of cancer or an increased risk of developing cancer
The normal range for alpha-fetoprotein in men and nonpregnant women is 0?40 ng/ml, though this varies with age and ethnicity
