High blood pressure 160 /100 my age 29 y.Test show hi level of triglycerides , hi level (ldl) low level( hdl) been a year on healthy diet lose 10 kg?
Keep going : The current weight is not provided, but if not at ideal body weight, further weight will likely help. Weight and diet are two pieces of the puzzle. Environmental factors and genetics predisposition are others. Blood pressure of 160/100 is hi for a 29 year old and most would start blood pressure medications at this point. Great job on the < 20 pounds weight loss. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

High monocyte %, manual count in toddler. All other results on CBC normal, mono CT 16. Cause for concern?
Not necessarily: The monocytes are often up some in a variety of viral illnesses but less commonly than the lymphocytes. Infectious mononucleosis does occur in a muted ( less intense) form in toddlers & the usual mono blood test can be negative until months after the illness has passed. If the kid is cruising around enjoying life i would ignore the test & get back to living. ...Read more
Low WBC, low abs neurophils, and low anion gap w/o K. All other results of CMP and CBC w/diff. normal. Cause for concern?
Why tested?: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, it would have helped to have the actual values rather than your interpretation of low and high. It would be better to discuss it with the doctor who ordered the tests as s/he knows more about your health. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
After total thyroidectomy, i131, and yrs in bipolar Meds...low ALT results and extremely low alkaline phosphate, which has been low for 4 yrs. ????
I had borderline high C-peptide 1.9 ml (lab norm: 0.7-1.9).I stopped taking carbohydrates and in 2 months result was 1.06.Problem or risk of diabetes?
Other risk factors: Per your medicine list, you take dexamethasone. Steroids can impact your blood glucose levels, increasing your risk of diabetes. I think the change in your diet was a good thing, and seeing the commensurate decrease in your C-peptide level is promising. If you stay on a lower carb diet, your risk of diabetes will remain low. ...Read more

No worry: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, none of your results are a cause for concern. Do follow your doctor's advice for follow-up care. Next time you get the test done, drink a couple of glasses of water in the morning before the test. ...Read more

Are there any long term risks in taking 6g fish oil @60%=4g of omega3?
What for?: Why do you feel the need to take so much fish oil? First of all, you are better off getting your fish oil directly from fish like wild alakan salmon or sardines. Second, high concentrations of fish oil can cause anti coagulation that can make you susceptible to bleeding. Good health will not come from a pill. ...Read more

My dad made blood test but the white blood cell range was high 23000 /lymphocites also high about 80 &segmented neutrophils 17.what should he do??
Hard to comment: He has mostly absolute lymphocytosis. If this was just a blood screen this is most likely chronic lymphocytic leukemia or CLL, which most of the time is a slowly progressive disease. If he was sick at the time of the test would just recommend follow-up CBC in couple of weeks. When was the last time he had normal cell counts? Would recommend seeing a hematologist if no acute sickness. ...Read more
Blood work showed lymph's @ 16.9% with reference range of 20.0 - 50.0. Platelet count was 65 with reference range150-400 thou/u. What could this mean?
Need more info: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, if your absolute lymphocyte count is low then along with the low platelet count it suggests a problem with production in the bone marrow. It would be prudent to consult a hematologist. ...Read more
Many issues: Lab error. Anti-platelet antibodies that distroy the platelets ( they only last 3-4 days anyway but increased destruction can occur). Infections ( sepsis or germs in the blood).Various syndromes (tar). Some of these are transient & resolve without treatment & some signal big problems. You should clarify what kind of situation you are facing with your dr. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My vit. d2 is 21.4 ng and my d3 is 26.3 ng for a d2/d3 total of 47.7 my Dr. says aok others say now way to low opinions?
Sounds ok if...: Sounds ok for a typical normal person. Testing for 25-OH-VitD2 and 25-OH-VitD3, and then adding the results to get the total vitamin D level, can help the doctor check the source of the vitamin deficiency and the treatment progress. There is debate over when it would be needed to do these tests. Some doctors feel that giving people more vitamin D would avoid deficiencies and avoid doing lab tests. ...Read more

My ths levels are low (0.05) and my T3 (liothyronine) is 6.5 all so my T4 is 20.2, what medicine do I need to take?
High T4 and low T3 (liothyronine) after complete thyroidectomy. Currently take 200mcg of levethyroxine. Should i increase or cut my dose?
Depends: Levothyroxine is t4. T4 is converted to t3 (liothyronine), (liothyronine) the active thyroid hormone. Some patients have trouble converting T4 to t3 (liothyronine) and need t3 (liothyronine) replacement inaddition to T4 replacement. You should talk to your doctor about your levels. Depending on the reason for your thyroidectomy, like thyroid cancer, you may want to have higher T4 levels to suppress your tsh. ...Read more

I've been on levothyroxine for three weeks and almost feel like my symptoms are worse. Both my t4 and my t3 (liothyronine) are low, the most bothersome symptoms ach?
Dosage adjustment: Usually, most cases of hypothyroidism are treated with increasing doses of l-thyroxin until all levels of T3 (liothyronine). T4 and TSH are normalized. This is determined by routine blood testing including checking for anti- thyroid antibodies to rule out autoimmune ( Hashimoto's) thyroiditis. ...Read more

See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that.

Am I converting to T3 adequately as TSH:15, T4:20 while T3 quite low at 3.9? 1st time T3 tested.(100mcg levo, prev on 125 daily with T4:25 TSH:0.7)
Hypothyroid and T3: If I understand your question, it appears that your TSH is mildly elevated (not sure of your normal range, though). You probably just need a higher dose of levothyroxine. Or maybe you are intermittently taking it with food, which can impair absorption. T4 to T3 conversion is almost never a problem, and you don't need to take supplemental T3. ...Read more
Found out I have low t4, hypothyroid. Is my hypothalamus and pituitary functioning as it should? Will t3/4hormone meds assist in correcting all issues
See endocrinologist: The best test for diagnosing hypothyroidism is a TSH level. If it is elevated, you have primary hypothyroidism and your pituitary/hypothalamus works fine. If your TSH is normal, it is possible that you could have a pit/hypoth problem, but this should be diagnosed by an endocrinologist. Simply putting you on t3/t4 will not help you if you don't have a true thyroid problem. ...Read more
I have trouble in T3 (liothyronine) and T4 and TSH hormens what does them affect if they are low?
Thyroid function: If TSH and T3 (liothyronine) and T4 are all low, then you need to check pituitary function and probably get a cat scan of the brain with contrast to be sure that you do not have a pituitary tumor. Usually if TSH is low, then the thyroid is overactive, and T3 (liothyronine) and T4 will be high. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My T3 (liothyronine) and T4 are low value from normal range i.e. 0.63 and 6.51 and TSH is normal what can i do?
My T3 levels have been low consistently, TSH normal, T4 on the high end of normal. Is the low T3 anything to be concerned about?
Hypothyroid and T3: If the TSH is normal, then that is strong evidence that you are normal. Pituitary TSH responds mostly to T3. If you T3 were too low, the TSH should be high. Indeed, I am not sure why T3 is being measured. There are more problems with the T3 assay than that of T4. This could just be "lab error". ...Read more
My TSH 3rd generation level came back at 9.490. MY T4 was normal and T3 (liothyronine) was low.Taking 200 mcg. What do these numbers mean?
Still hypothyroid: Not sure how long u have been on thyroid replacement, but if been on 200mcg daily over 6-8 weeks, likely require increase dose. If u have just had u'r medication adjusted the. Repeat TSH usually done in 6 wks; the numbers show that u'r body is still in hypothyroid state and that u'r thyroid gland is making less and less hormone or the T4 is not being converted to T3, (liothyronine) so thyroid medicine needed ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Level of TBG: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, if you have high level of thyroglobulin binding protein (TBG) that will make your total T4 high when free T4 may be low. However, if your TSH is in the normal range, you are not likely to be thyroid deficient. ...Read more
