ACE Levels - confused?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi, my ACE level is 45 so is that good or bad? And is the lower the level the more well you are? I have googled and many sites/labs give different explanations. Some say <70 is normal but doesn't state whether someone with 6 would be deemed as being more healthy that someone with 66, even though they are both below 70.

    HI Tcup my last test was at 48 doctor says my level whilst on the high side is fine. I know what you mean when it comes to trying to find out correct levels . My Lmphcytes were low in the same test but he said all my test were fine.

    Good luck take care

    Thanks David. The lab states <70 as normal for ACE levels, though when you search online, many other labs give a lower range. My lymphocyte count is also low, along with other blood readings though my doc stated on my record 'no further action required' Sometimes you feel like hitting your head against a brick wall!

      Hi TCup . I too have low lymphocytes but "normal" ACE results. All of my other blood work/labs have returned as "normal" with only lymphocytes being low (subsets of the lymphocytes show that my CD8 cells are well below the normal range and CD4 levels are normal-low) They have been stable-low for the past 2 years. I have not been officially diagnosed with Sarcoidosis but it is now at the top of the list- since most other things have been ruled out over the course of the year. (CT scan results showed pulmonary nodes in February 2018 which started the process of eliminating other possible conditions).
