Cardiolipin antibodies are antibodies produced by our own immune system that target the cardiolipin of the body, which results in mitochondrial dysfunction and eventually hampers the natural blood clotting cycle, resulting in abnormal blood clotting.
Cardiolipin is a phospholipid present in the membranes of mitochondria containing two phosphate and four fatty acyl chains. This cardiolipin consists of a total lipid composition of 20% of our body. Its function is to repair damaged cells, and it also helps in protein synthesis. Cardiolipin is very important in the functioning of the mitochondria, also known as the powerhouse of the cell.
There are three groups of cardiolipin antibodies found in the body, namely: IgG, IgM, and IgA.
The most common tests out of these are IgG and IgM. If the symptoms still exist, then an IgA test is performed. The detection of IgM antibodies is very valuable in diagnosing auto-immune disorders, whereas IgG antibodies are found in later stages of auto-immune disorders.Increased heart rates, leg pain and swelling, miscarriages, coughing, headaches, strokes, leg and hand discoloration, and other symptoms are common.
The symptoms should not be ignored and necessary steps should be taken immediately, as with proper consultation and medication, it is treatable.
The high level of these antibodies results in low blood platelet count and increased miscarriages, and also results in premature labour and dysfunctional birth. The high levels of these antibodies also increase the chances of autoimmunity diseases like lupus etc.
These auto antibodies are detected for a short period of time in people suffering from cancer, HIV, AIDS, etc.
