The dose has to be adjusted within a very narrow range to try to prevent both rejection and kidney injury. ...Read more

On metoprolol for IST/POTS. The dose that's high enough to control it lowers my BP too much. What alternatives are there?

Blood potassium level of 3.4...How long will it take to restore to normal levels by eating more potassium rich foods and how much do I need to add?
My iron levels are worrying. How can I raise my ferritin levels without causing the iron to go too high?
Don't Rx a lab value: And especially, don't try to be your own physician based on things you've read on the internet. If you have a low serum ferritin, you're probably iron deficient and your first and foremost concern is why -- i.e., do you have stomach / colon cancer? Ulcer? Hookworm? Many 'healthy' / veg diets are iron deficient. Treating iron deficiency won't make you sick from 'too high iron'. ...Read more

I have high MPV and eosinophils, and also low neutrophils and sedimentation of blood. Should I need to worry?
Thank you so much
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. Having said that, it would have helped to know the actual values. In any case, if you do not have symptoms, do not worry about the lab results. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. 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. ...Read more
What does it mean when suddenly your blood count results are all over with 9 flagged components too high, 6 flagged too low and one flagged eh?
CBC: Without knowing what values are abnormal there is no way in which to help you interpret these changes, but what can be said is that they are generally meaningless in the absence of a full clinical evaluation. Lab values are often only helpful after a full history and physical exam since the changes can be due to multiple causes. Discuss with the doctor who ordered this. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
