When is the alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) test performed?

The AFP test is performed during the second trimester of pregnancy, i.e., somewhere between the 15th and 20th weeks. It is also definitely recommended if you are above the age of 35, have diabetes, intake harmful drugs during pregnancy, or have congenital disorders running in your family.

The test is also performed if your doctor feels you have a liver disease or a certain kind of cancer or are at a risk of developing these. It can also be done if you are undergoing treatment for cancer.

How to prepare for the alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) test?

No specific preparations are required for the AFP test. However, do inform your doctor about any drugs you are currently taking.

How is the alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) test performed?

The AFP test involves taking a blood sample from a vein located in your arm. A syringe is used for the same. The area from where the blood would be taken would first be cleaned with an antiseptic solution. Once the blood sample has been collected, it will be sent to the laboratory.

Interpreting the alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) test results

Interpreting the alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) test results

The normal range for the AFP test for pregnant women in their second trimester is 10-150 ng/mL. Similarly, for adults, the normal range is less than 40 ng/mL and for infants is less than 30 ng/mL.

Increased levels of AFP can signify miscalculated due date, multiple pregnancy, liver disease (such as hepatitis), the presence of tumours and different types of cancers mentioned above. A rise in the AFP levels after or while receiving treatment for cancer indicates that the disease is returning or that the treatment is ineffective. Elevated levels of AFP can also indicate spinal dysraphisms (neural tube defects) or anencephaly in the foetus.

On the other hand, decreased levels of AFP can signify that the foetus has Down syndrome or Edwards syndrome. These declining levels of AFP can also indicate that the treatment you are receiving for cancer is efficient.

If you have received treatment for cancer and the AFP levels in your blood neither increased nor decreased, it could mean that the condition of the disease is stable.
Sometimes, the AFP test can also give a false-positive result, i.e, your baby would be healthy, but you might still receive an abnormal test result. These atypical results, thus, do not always signify that there is some defect with the foetus. You may be asked to undergo other tests for a confirmatory diagnosis.

Ms Sujata arrived on time and was very polite and caring throughout the process. Actually there was a mistake on my part where I couldn't attend her calls because I was not well and i feel asleep bcoz of my medicines. I had scheduled an appointment for my mother but Ms Sujata somehow reached my address by asking my neighbours. Such a lovely girl, and also the collection process was really smooth. Would absolutely recommend everyone to check out their services
