FSC test

Postby cgoodi1 » Sat Jun 02, 2012 10:52 am

My doctor's getting me to have a blood test done to look at my FSC levels since there's still protein in my urine. Anyone know what FSC has to do with it or with the preeclampsia I had three and a half months ago?

I am not sure what FSC stands for, here. It could be Free Serum Creatinine, possibly? Or Free Secretory Component? One of those is looking at kidney function and the other at immune response...
