Can Lexapro Cause High Readings In Blood Test
Taking Lexapro 10 mg seroquel 100 lamotrigine 200 I missed my periods for 12 days I did urine and blood test both of them came negativ im worried?
Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

In blood test. Neutrophils low. Lymphs high Monocytes high. But only reading high on absolute was Granulocytes and Neutrophils. Cause for concern?
How high?: Percentages mean nothing. If your absolute granulocyte count was slightly above the reference range without abnormal forms and you feel well, it means nothing; this fluctuates and a cold shower can double it. ...Read more
My ca 125 blood test result slightly elevated, with a different reading 3 times, what could cause this to happen?
Many causes: The ca-125 blood test is very sensitive-- in many cases it is too sensitive. In certain cases, it can be a marker of certain types of cancer. But in other patients, a modestly elevated ca-125 is not alarming. Visit with your doctor to better understand the details of your case. ...Read more

High creatinine: You need to see a nephrologist (n) and have a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein done. This will give you an acutal measure of your kidney function. If you have proteinuria (p), you will need to be started on either an ace-i or an arb to reduce your BP and p. You should also have a renal ultrasound done. You may need another agent to control your bp. See a n for more answers. ...Read more
For 20 yrs my alp is very high in every blood test. Latest is 716 u/l. What other symptoms should I look for to narrow down the cause?
Alk Phos: High alp levels may suggest bile ducts are obstructed, there could be active bone formation occurring from osteoblast activity (paget's disease). Levels may be elevated in untreated coeliac disease. If you have had this for 20+ years, imagine that this has been assessed by several physicians. If not, find a good internist and investigate. Best wishes. ...Read more

They can be high due to a blood disorder (myeloproliferative neoplasia). Platelets also can be elevated in response to serious illnesses.

As a direct result: Of being malnourished, if the major source of nutrition was animal products (particularly liver), that could possibly, maybe be a cause.

What can cause a never before seen high protein level in the yearly blood test of a healthy 58 year old male?
If you are talking about total serum proteins, it may be because you were dehydrated due to not drinking water for the fasting blood test. The other major cause is increase in gamma globulins due to inflammation or tumor of the plasma cells. The starting point of the investigation would be serum protein electrophoresis.

My husband had a blood test to cheeck calcium levels 6 months ago it was low and told to use caltrate plus now dr said to stop cause it's to high why?
Get a consult: You don't treat a lab value. Reference ranges are set so that a few % of healthies fall outside. A true low serum calcium in an adult who appears healthy is uncommon (calculate ionized calcium, which is what matters, based on albumin), and possible hypoparathyroidism or renal calcium wasting should be worked up. I trust vitamin d levels have been checked. Endocrinology consult is in order. ...Read more
Lots of new reds: If I've had to make more red cells than usual, after a blood donation, or a minor or major bleed, or because I've hemolyzed from running a marathon, or I've destroyed reds from illness, then the reticulocytes will be up. More than 1.5% is worth investigating. Best wishes ...Read more

Hi does Powerade cause high sugar before a blood test because my blood test results came back at my sugar level was 115 h should I worry?
High glucose: Means you need to manage your glucose level better. I don't know what is in Powereade but many of those drinks are loaded w/sugar. Consider switching to lemon water. Please see your doc. He/she may give you a A1c test which measures your glucose over 3-4 months rather than one moment in time. Peace and good health. ...Read more

I got a CBC blood test and my lymphocytes reading was 45.5% and was flagged high...Normal said 42%. Everything else was normal. Is this bad.
Absolute count?: These percentages mean nothing whatever apart from the total number of lymphocytes and the total number of neutrophils. If both are in the reference range or fairly close, this is not a cause for concern. ...Read more
I got a CBC blood test and my lymphocytes reading was 45.5% and was flagged high...and my leucocytes 3.67 was flagged low.
Is that all?: These values fluctuate wildly and if both absolute lymphocyte and absolute neutrophil counts are reasonably close to the normal range, and all else is good, I'd ignore it. ...Read more

Can you tell me what you suggest if ESR blood test result is very high (for female over 50years is 85))can cause cancer?
Just a number: Sed rate is useful in diagnosing a handful of uncommon diseases and in my opinion is overused. Many older folks have a high sed rate and no explanation is ever found. It's also not something you can treat. I suggest you forget about it and maintain normal vigilance against cancer like any other sensible person. ...Read more
Dear Doctor. I recently got my blood test and the result shows high MCHC level. What could be the cause? Result is attached.
Question significanc: MCHC is rarely of use as a test as long as you are not anemic (have a normal Hemoglobin (Hb) level). So tell us about your Hb. If it is >12 Gms, you can forget about your MCHC, as it has no significance unless you are Anemic (Hb <12 Gms) ...Read more
