    The Anticardiolipin test (ACL antibody test) helps detect the level of anticardiolipin antibodies in the bloodstream.

    Anticardiolipin antibodies attack a phospholipid called cardiolipin, which plays a major role in blood clotting. Higher levels of anticardiolipin antibodies decreases the cardiolipin levels in the body, which causes an increased risk of blood clots. This condition is known as Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS).

    Due to this condition, the body starts developing unexplained clots in the arteries and veins. As a result, you may experience bleeding issues.

    People with antiphospholipid syndrome may experience the following symptoms:

    • Mobility issues
    • Trouble balancing
    • Speech problems
    • Fatigue 
    • Memory issues 
    • Tingling sensation in the arms and feet 
    • Constant migraines and headaches 
    • Vision problems
    • Shortness of breath and chest pain 
    • Abdominal pain 
    • Rashes

    In cases where the antiphospholipid syndrome goes unchecked for quite some time, you may undergo some severe complications, including:

    • Stroke 
    • Repeated miscarriages 
    • Blood clots in legs (Deep vein thrombosis)
    • Stillbirths 
    • Cardiovascular diseases 
    • Neurological issues like dementia, seizures, migraines, blood clots in the brain, etc.
    • Thrombocytopenia 
    • Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA)
    • Pulmonary embolism 
    • Kidney failure

    Apollo 24|7 offers a comprehensive Anticardiolipin Antibody IgG and IgM test package that includes two distinct tests, namely:

    • Anticardiolipin Ab IgG
    • Anticardiolipin Ab IgM

    Both these tests together measure the level of anticardiolipin antibodies in the bloodstream and help determine the presence of the antiphospholipid syndrome.

    You should get tested for antiphospholipid syndrome if you:

    • Have had multiple unexplained blood clots in the artery or vein.
    • Start exhibiting symptoms of an autoimmune disease. 
    • Have recently had a miscarriage. 
    • Have been experiencing heavy menstrual periods. 
    • Have recently experienced a sudden loss of movement in your legs. 
    • Have been experiencing bleeding from your nose or gums. 
    • You may have a higher chance of contracting the disease if you:
    • Are pregnant 
    • Have been immobile for a long time 
    • Have considerably higher triglyceride and cholesterol levels 
    • Take oral contraceptives 
    • Have had surgery
