About Interleukin 6 (IL6), Serum test

Why is Interleukin 6 (IL6), Serum Test done?

An Interleukin 6 (IL6) Serum test checks for any inflammation. Interleukin 6 is a pro-inflammatory cell-signaling molecule that plays an important role in human immunity. They aid in cell communication as a response to hampered immunity, guiding cell movement towards the site of inflammation or infection.  Cytokines play a vital role in what is referred to as the inflammatory cascade, wherein the immune response pathways are activated in a coordinated manner when the human body is experiencing anything out of the ordinary. 

What does Interleukin 6 (IL6), Serum Test measure?

The interleukin 6 Serum Test measures the amount of IL6 in the blood. Under normal conditions, the value of IL6 in the blood is less than or equal to 1.8 pg/ml. Higher concentrations of IL6 usually are taken as an indication of immune responses; triggered by an infection. They can however also be the result of an existing autoimmune disease or other serious, lifelong disease like diabetes.

Risk/side effects of Interleukin 6 (IL6), Serum Test

An IL6 is conducted through a blood sample drawn from a patient’s arm. As such there are no risks. The patient may, however, in rare cases feel dizzy due to the blood loss. They may also feel pain at the site of the needle puncture. However, these are normal side effects that curb on their own after a little while.

Since this test is to measure the Interleukin concentrations in the blood which can indicate the presence of a serious illness or infection, it is important that the test be done in a safe environment. 



Can Lifestyle Changes reduce IL6 levels?

So far there has been no evidence found that would suggest any impact of lifestyle changes on IL6. The levels go down as the infection or inflammation decreases. In cases where the IL6 levels are affected by a disease like diabetes, managing symptoms may keep the elevated levels in check, however, they would not go back to normal.

Do I need any preparation for the test?

No, it is a simple blood test that requires no preparation. If the sample is taken by any other means, then the doctor may provide the necessary instructions.

Can the IL6 test be done by any other method?

In a few cases, the test can be conducted by drawing out cerebrospinal fluid or synovial fluid if required.

How long do results take?

Since IL6 is specially ordered and not a regular blood test, results can take anywhere between 1-7 days.

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
