Liver tests: Both of those tests are slightly abnormal. They are tests of the liver, but without the rest of the liver numbers and knowledge of your medical condition, medications, and physical exam, it is impossible to know what is causing the abnormal tests. You should see your doctor or a gastroenterologist, or perhaps do a consult here on Healthtap concierge, if you have the results that you could upload.

How does phosphate trigger pseudomonas aeruginosa infections?

Dr. Michael Depietro

By changing genes: This is not completely understood, but there is experimental evidence from animal experiments and such, that the pseudomonas grown in a low phosphate environment will respond on changes in what genes the germ activates. These changes lead the bacteria to make chemicals that increase its ability to grow and cause damage. In patients with low phosphate levels this may mean > risk of infection.

Does the dicalcium phospate and calcium in milk interfere with levothyroxine?

Sometimes: Calcium is only a problem if you take your thyroid pills with calcium. Others things, such as soy and iron as well as calcium can interfere with the absorption of the thyroid med. In the past, we had patients wait 4 hours before taking any of these foods. Today, the pills dissolve so fast that you only need to wait 30 minutes before eating or drinking anything except water.

If you have low c3c and low phosphate levels but all other labs normal does that mean you probably have glomernephritis?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in

Not likely.: Glomerulonephritis has many causes and has signs of renal failure, like hematuria and proteinuria, and oliguria. These are blood and protein in the urine, and low urine output respectively. Salt and water are retained, and red blood cell casts on urinalysis confirms diagnosis. Your decreased c3c might point to lupus which can have renal involvement, so get checked, but kidneys seem ok for now.
