Can Cancer Cause Inr Levels To Change
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
Life: Spot acth levels fluctuate tremendously just from the transient stresses of living, or even without. Even if elevated from disease, they'll fluctuate wildly. This is why we try to suppress them and if we can't, disease is likely. ...Read more

FSH is 28 and LH 10.2 due to chemo damage to testicles. T levels are normal, but could the elevated FSH/LH levels predispose me to Gynomastia?
Unlikely: Unlikely with normal T. Gynecomastia triggered by a decrease in the amount of the hormone testosterone compared with estrogen. Most cases of gynecomastia either idiopathic or related to medications. Elevated FSH: implies damage to the sperm producing cells which make up most of the volume of the testis. Elevated LH: implies damage to the Leydig cells in the testis which produce testosterone. ...Read more

A-hi10ug/dl,C-5ug/dl: Elevated lead in the body can be detected by the presence of changes in blood cells visible with a microscope and dense lines in the bones of children on X-ray, main tool for dx. is the blood lead level. When blood lead levels are recorded, the results indicate lead is circulating within the blood stream, not the amt. being stored in the body. Elevated lead in the body can be detected by the presence of changes in blood cells visible with a microscope and dense lines in the bones of children seen on X-ray, but the main tool for diagnosis is measurement of the blood lead level. When blood lead levels are recorded, the results indicate how much lead is circulating within the blood stream, not the amount being stored in the body. There are two units for reporting blood lead level, either micrograms per deciliter (µg/dl), or micrograms per 100 grams (µg/100 g) of whole blood, which are numerically equivalent. The Centers for Disease Control (US) has set the standard elevated blood lead level for adults to be 10 (µg/dl) of the whole blood. For children the number is set much lower at 5 (µg/dl) of blood as of 2012 down from a previous 10 (µg/dl). Children are especially prone to the health effects of lead and, as a result, blood lead levels must be set lower and closely monitored if contamination is possible. The major treatments are removal of the source of lead and chelation therapy (administration of agents that bind lead so it can be excreted). ...Read more
