Frequently Asked Questions About ASMA Test
What is ASMA?
The ASMA full form is Anti Smooth Muscle Antibody. The anti smooth muscle antibody is a protein produced by our immune system. This protein attacks the healthy cells in our body causing autoimmune disorder.
These antibodies are commonly found in autoimmune liver disease. In autoimmune liver disease, the antibodies attack and damage the smooth muscle and other tissues in the liver. The Anti Smooth Muscle Antibodies are often associated with autoimmune hepatitis.
The test measures the level of anti smooth muscle antibodies present in your blood.
Why is the Anti Smooth Muscle Antibody test done?
The ASMA or Anti Smooth Muscle Antibody Test is done when your doctor suspects autoimmune hepatitis. It is also rarely done with Ana Test & Anti LKM Antibodies test. Your doctor asks you to take the test if you have chronic liver disease or symptoms such as
- Enlarged liver
- Swelling in abdomen
- Liver tenderness
- Dark urinating
- Symptoms of Jaundice
This test is also done when your doctor is examining you for liver disease to distinguish the different causes of liver disease with autoimmune hepatitis.
How to prepare for ASMA Test?
The Anti Smooth Muscle Antibodies or ASMA test does not require any preparation. You can carry on your regular activities and have a normal diet before the test.
How is the ASMA test done?
The procedure for the Anti Smooth Muscle Antibodies is the same as any other type of blood test. A nurse will put a tight band around your arm. This makes your vein swell making it easy to inject the needle. The skin will be cleansed with a disinfectant liquid before injecting the needle.
The needle will be injected in your vein to draw the blood sample. After drawing enough sample, the needle will be removed. You will be asked to put pressure on the needle site using a cotton ball to stop bleeding. Then a band-aid will be put on the area from where the blood is drawn.
What are the risks involved in the test?
There are no potential risk involved in the ASMA test. You may feel slight discomfort during the test when the needle is injected to draw blood. It is necessary to inform your doctor if you have any known bleeding disorders which may result in excess bleeding.
What does ASMA test results mean?
The increase in the anti smooth muscle antibody indicates the presence of autoimmune Hepatitis Type 1. It also suggests that you may have primary biliary cholangitis (PBC). The ASMA can also be found in other medical conditions such as infectious mononucleosis, hepatitis C and a few types of cancer.
If the test results are negative, then it indicates that the symptoms of liver disease or injury are due to some other reasons other than autoimmune hepatitis.
