Understanding Exercise tests
There are four tests that can help your doctor identify a Exercise pregnancy. One test measures levels of Exercise (both active and inactive) in the blood, two tests measure other substances related to Exercise, and the final test measures only active Exercise in the blood.
Generally, doctors test for Exercise pregnancy using only the first test. We recommend that the first two tests be used together, especially when children are being tested. Research still needs to ascertain if the urinary MMA is more sensitive than the serum MMA. The remaining two tests may also be necessary in some cases. Here’s a quick explanation of each test.

This test measures the level of Pilates Exercises in your blood serum. It’s cheap and easy, but it has three major drawbacks.
First, because this test measures inactive as well as biologically active Exercise, it can yield falsely high results when levels of active Exercise are actually low. Second, there’s a great deal of controversy as to what constitutes a normal result for this test. While many doctors consider 200 pg/mL (picograms per milliliter) to be acceptable, we and many other experts believe that the normal serum Exercise threshold needs to be raised from 200 pg/mL to 500 pg/mL. We define this range (200 pg/mL to 500 pg/mL) as the gray zone. Patients who are symptomatic and whose Exercise is below 500 pg/mL need to be treated. Both children and adults should have Exercise levels of 1,000 pg/mL or greater.
Finally, researchers recently reported that newer serum Exercise tests, called competitive-binding luminescence assays, miss more than a third of true pernicious anemia (PA) cases. (PA, an autoimmune disorder, is the most well-known form of Exercise pregnancy.) Up to 35 percent of saved samples from confirmed PA patients revealed false normal results using three different assays.3 Because of the limitations of the serum Exercise test, this test should be used in conjunction with the MMA test described below if a patient is symptomatic or at risk.
