Recent blood test shows low indirect bilirubin (.08)+increased blood volume (99.7)+increased hematocrit (47.2)+high WBC (14,200). Huh?
Uncertain.: The WBC is definitely high, but the HCT and MCV are borderline, and thus of uncertain significance. If truly elevated, the HCT could point to a primary or secondary polycythemia, an increase in the number of red blood cells. But this could also reflect mild dehydration, and given the borderline degree could be nothing. The high WBC is real. If you have no symptoms I would just repeat in 1mo. ...Read more
Dominant: Positive is dominant over negative. You get one gene from each of your parents, so you are either --, -+, +-, or ++. Only in the case of -- will you have rh negative blood. With -+, +-, and ++, you will have rh positive blood. This makes rh positive blood the most common type of the two. This can be a problem with a baby: if mom is rh pos (+-), dad is rh neg (--), and baby is rh neg (--): attack! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
IgG subclasses: There are several classes of immunoglobulins like IgA, IgM, and IgE. IgG also has subclasses that we test for. A subclass deficiency can be an explanation for susceptibility to certain types of infections. An Allergist/Immunologist can put the results in perspective for you in the context of your history. ...Read more
What does this urinalysis results mean? Albumin +1, leukocytes +3, red blood cells 1-2, white blood cells 10-15.
Urine: Albumin shows protein in the urine, leukocytes go with inflammation or infection, plus you have small amount of blood and white blood cells in the urine. All can go with a UTI. Was there nitrites in urine? Hopefully, they sent out a urine culture to check for infection. Follow up with your doc. ...Read more

Unsure: In the past, the test was used to diagnose autoimmune diseases such as Lupus or Rheumatoid arthritis, but has largely been abandoned due to problems with the test. DNA is a double stranded (ds) molecule and anti-dsDNA is a marker for Lupus activity. However, IgG antibodies binding to single strand (ss) DNA occur in a high percentage of people without autoimmune disease. ...Read more
Lots: The hepatic function tests measure how much protein is in your blood- 1 of the most important proteins, albumin, is made by the liver. These tests also measure levels of different substances made in the liver. The specific values for these substances can indicate damage to liver cells, like in cirrhosis, or blockages in liver drainage, such as with gall stones. ...Read more

Sticking together: This is a technique most commonly used in the lab, to see whether a particular antigen or antibody is present and working under various conditions. Latex agglutination may be used to test for forms of arthritis or infection; an antibody that makes red cells stick together may explain a clinical problem. ...Read more

Semen anlys let me know is it ok for pregnancy
non motile 70
Abnormal semen: Although it is possible to achieve a pregnancy with low sperm motility, it is less likely. Here, the motility is very low (10%) and there is clumping present. This could be due to varicocele, exposures, medications, antisperm antibodies or various other things, including general health issues. This merits evaluation by a urologist. ...Read more

Typhoid: A single widal test in an unvaccinated patient showing h and/or o titres greater than or equal to 1:160 and typhoid-like symptoms is strongly suggestive of typhoid fever. It also appears that h titre is more useful than o titre. More false positives are found than false negatives. Under these circumstances, the clinical picture is the decisive factor in making a diagnosis of typhoid. ...Read more
I am 23, testosterone=2.52 ng/ml, weak body, wide hips.194 mill/ml sperms, 35% progressive, 2-3 agglutinations/hpf.What could be my desease and fertility?
Difficult to know: Testosterone is low. Needs evaluation. Most common cause is metabolic syndrome with sleep apnea and stress reducing the t. In obesity, fat cells convert testosterone to estrogen and estrogen suppresses production of t. This is what we see most. Men do need normal hormone values but best to treat the underlying cause and not just replace. ...Read more
Mostly red: Freshly drawn out of body, blood is just red..Bright red. The red cells are made from substance heme and appear red. The white blood cells actually appear a bit white but there are few white cells in comparison so not visible unless the blood is spun down. When spun down, the rest of the fluid is called plasma and it is relatively clear. Google up some images. Have fun learning. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Myoglobinuria: Very, dark urine with the color of cola could be due to the presence of myoglobin, which is a breakdown product of muscle cell. It can be caused by trauma, alcohol, medications, and vigorous exercises. It could indicate that you have rhabdomyolysis, which could lead to kidney failure. Another cause would be blood (as in uti) or bilirubin in the urine (as in liver disease). Should be checked. ...Read more
Not exactly: It usually increases heart rate and blood pressure and this can cause flow problems (like stroke / heart attack), not from actual "thickening" of the blood.

Variations on red: Arterial blood and capillary blood are bright red, as oxygen imparts a strong red color to the heme group. Deoxygenated blood is a darker shade of red; this is present in veins, and can be seen during blood donation and when venous blood samples are taken. Blood in carbon monoxide poisoning is bright red, because carbon monoxide causes the formation of carboxyhemoglobin. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Imbalance: Normally, people have acid production from metabolic activities that goes to blood and gets neutralized by alkali produced by kidneys. In kidney failure, acid is noted in blood since it is not neutralized. Other cases include diabetes type i, chronic diarrhea, certain meds, sepsis with blood infection, and respiratory (ventillatory) failure among other more rare causes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
