ASO titer: 700 last year. 500 this year. No symptoms? What??

What could this mean. I haven't had any infections or anything like that I THINK. Nor do I have a sore throat.

January 2010 my ASO titer was arond 700. A few months after that it had decreased a little bit.

A year later, two days ago, it was around 500. It seems to be decreasing very slowly.

What does this mean? Could this cause skin problems?

I recently discovered my ASO titer is 390, after course of antibitoics it is 380. I have been having throat issues for the last 3 years and now I feel fatigue, did you do anything to decrease your ASO titer?

No it was decreasing on its own... Ive also had throat problems for a long time. I didn't realize they were connected. I'm having my tonsils removed tomorrow actually so this should be the end of it. I should not have waited that long. I was diagnosed in 2008 already with chronic tonsillitis.

What a coincidence, I was also going to have them removed tomorrow but cancelled my surgery. I want to see if it will go on its own. Good luck to you tomororow.

I was already to remove my tonsils a few times but my ENTs didn't want me to, they told me I am making a wrong decision and I will regret later on because I will still have fatigue, low grade fever and throat issues. To them my tonsils like small and clean. But I think the strep or whatever else is there is deep inside. I am starting a new job soon and I will be working 60-70 h, hope I can live with this a few months b4 I am allowed to take vacation to do the surgery if needed.

Good luck to you tomorrow !

I also had my tonsils removed 5 months ago but my ASO titer didn't change much, did yours?

An ASO titer will show if you have had an infection with Group A Streptococcus. Most people's low titer will never go away. It will always be present upon testing. Dr's are interested in knowing if there is a high titer present or if it is increasing. This would mean recent or current infection.
Low titers are present in many people. If you ever had strep throat as a child your ASO titer will probably be positive.
