Pathology — prostaglandin e2 serum came 534 high and alpha 1 globulin came .4 high. McCoy came 80fl low and hematocrit 38% what's hat mean?

Pathology — prostaglandin e2 serum came 534 high and alpha 1 globulin came .4 high.  McCoy came 80fl low and hematocrit 38% what's hat mean?

Not much: Alpha 1 is mostly antitrypsin which is an acute phase reactant and if elevated it means nothing really. Prostaglandin E2 is not a routine piece of lab work. The 'city is okay for a guy. If by McCoy you mean MCV / mean corpuscular volume, 80 fL is okay with me as a pathologist. Relax and be glad for okay labs. ...Read more

Would arginine alpha-ketoglutarate effect my depression medication?

Would arginine alpha-ketoglutarate effect my depression medication?

Doubtful: No. There is a tantalizing reference in the literature that arginine depletion can improve depression: http://www.Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/21515310. However, the converse, to my knowledge, is not established, namely, that arginine can adversely effect depression. There should theoretically be no interaction between arginine and antidepressants, per se. Arginine is a natural substance. ...Read more

Emphysema: Individuals with anti Alpha 1 deficiency are more prone to the environmental oxidative factors such as polution, smoking, etc therefore they get emphysema eventually especially if they smoke.

B12 deficiency and MTHFRDNA mutation. Should I be taking methyl b12.?  I take cynacobilamin now

Little science here: MTHFR testing is pushed by a single lab and most of us pathologists aren't impressed. A majority of people are told they have a mutation and get advised to take special vitamins. I'd take an ordinary preparation. Maybe time will prove these folks right but I would be surprised. ...Read more

One tube of BenGay is not likely to cause you trouble. But, as asked before, What is your concern? Why do you keep asking us this question without something that is causing you concern? ...Read more

51.5yrs. Sudden onset of dysmenorrhea. What are prostaglandins? Can they cause dysmenorrhea at my age? If so, how is this possible?
