My blood test results: total bilirubin: 1.41 h ast: 40 h alt: 100 h total alk phosphatase: 43 l serum total protein: 7.1 e.R. Said hepatitis?

My blood test results:
total bilirubin: 1.41 h
ast: 40 h
alt: 100 h
total alk phosphatase: 43 l
serum total protein: 7.1

e.R. Said hepatitis?

Let's try this...: I have only a little bit of the story you've shared. Perhaps it's time to see whether the ast and alt get back to normal after two weeks off alcohol and any not-totally-necessary meds you may be taking. If so, this is the start of a healthier life after alcohol. If not, the workup for virus infections, iron overload, wilson's, autoimmunity & need for exercise can begin. Good luck. ...Read more

Urine test results: urine blood 3+, urine protein trace. Are these normal, or should I be concerned? Currently being worked up for low h/h (7.2/27)

Urine test results: urine blood 3+, urine protein trace. Are these normal, or should I be concerned? Currently being worked up for low h/h (7.2/27)

Follow advice: 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, 3+ blood in urine and h/h of 7.2/27 are not normal. Make sure to follow your doctor's advice about tests and treatments. ...Read more

I got a blood test done and the results reflect the following: TSH .328, HDL 32, triglycerides 215, alkaline 23, and blood sugar 107. What you think?

I got a blood test done and the results reflect the following: TSH .328, HDL 32, triglycerides 215, alkaline 23, and blood sugar 107. What you think?

More information: Why were the tests done? Was specimen drawn after an overnight fast? If so the triglycerides are high and so is the blood sugar. Hdl is low. None of the findings are diagnostic of a disease, except, that blood sugar suggests a pre-diabetic state. It is best to discuss the results and treatment with the doctor who ordered the tests. ...Read more

Urine creatinine 24hour is 18.5 (7.1-17.7mmol/d) and my urine protein 24hour is 0.14 (<0.15g/d), I have IgM k monocloncal protein in b2 what is this?

Urine creatinine 24hour is 18.5 (7.1-17.7mmol/d) and my urine protein 24hour is 0.14 (<0.15g/d), I have IgM k monocloncal protein in b2 what is this?

Stop worrying: Reference ranges are where most people fall; there's no reason at all to get upset about a trivially high creatinine on a test that is done only to make a ratio with the albumin, which seems quite normal, thanks. My own guess is that your physician is eager to reassure you, and i'd urge you to accept this. There's much good in your life & future -- keep your eyes there. ...Read more

Are these labs cause for concern? Calcium 8.7 L Creatinine 0.61 L Anion Gap 13.9 H Epithelial Cells- Many WBC-10-20

May be WBC: 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, I trust the WBC 10-20 was in urine. If so, it should be repeated with proper urine collection of mid-stream specimen, after cleaning the external genitalia. Your doctor can advise on proper collection technique. Others are okay. ...Read more

What does this indicate a pco2 arterial of 24, pH 7.49, co2 whole blood 18.8, o2 sat. 98.4 all from a blood gas

What does this indicate a pco2 arterial of 24, pH 7.49, co2 whole blood 18.8, o2 sat. 98.4 all from a blood gas

Lab data: The pc02 is low suggesting that you are blowing off carbon dioxide at an excessive rate, perhaps from hyperventilation. The p02 is normal, and the the total c02 is the sum of hco3? and pco2 by the formula: tco2 = [hco3?] + ?*pco2, where ?=0.226 mm/kpa, hco3? is expressed in millimolar concentration (mm) (mmol/l) and pco2 is expressed in kpa. 18.8 is low.

Probably reactive: You are anemic and the numbers are suspicious for iron deficiency. If you are a healthy 34 year-old who menstruates regularly, you could easily be low in iron. The plaelet count is very high, but is likely reacting to the low iron and should come down if it is replaced. The elevated white cells (WBC) is not as easy to understand. Inflamation, infection, other? Could use more info. Good luck. ...Read more
