High blood pressure 150/85. And racing heart rate 125. Blood work done, everything came back normal, CT scan is normal, and urine was normal.
Reactive: Assuming those measurements are at complete rest, and assuming the EKG shows that the heart rate is due to nl conduction (sinus tachycardia), then the abnormalities are considered "reactive", ie due to something else. Some considerations include: fever, anemia, pain, anxiety, XS thyroid, alcohol withdrawal. More ominous considerations: congestive heart failure, sepsis, DKA. This list isn't all. ...Read more

Blood test results show lymphocytes at 46 when normal is 20-40. Everything else (white and red blood cell count normal). Should i be worried?
Lymphocytes: There is always some variation in counts , what is "normal" is what falls within the 95% confidence interval of average. So some "normals" will fall above or below the range. Would not worry if no symptoms, no atypical lymphocytes, may consider repeating in 2-3 months to get the pattern. Follow up and discuss with your doctor as well. ...Read more

I think I understand: You are asking what keeps the viscosity of blood within a narrow range. It's physical chemistry -- the blood must contain either some very abnormal red cells, a great oversupply of red cells, or abundant gigantic protein molecules (notably excess igm) before the viscosity of the blood will alter. For serum, the viscosity reflects abnormal proteins. ...Read more
Lipase and Ferritin: These may be related. Ferritin usually reflects total iron stores in the body, but may be depressed by inflammatory conditions. Lipase is most commonly elevated with damage to the pancreas. Some further evaluation and examination, possibly with some radiographs to investigate seem wise, depending of course on the magnitude of the abnormalities and your symptoms. ...Read more
Had bloodwork done. Bun/creatinine ratio, ldh little elevated. Hdlcholesteral a little low. Everything else norm. Can smoking and obese cause this?
Yes: Smoking and obesity can cause that cholesterol pattern. The elevated ldh is a little unusual; all labs need to be evaluated further by your physician- depends on many things. These findings do provide objective evidence for lifestyle modifications needed to start now, so that cardiologists or cardiac surgeons are not needed in the future. Stop smoking, start exercise- goal 30-45min 5-6 days/wk. ...Read more

Imagining study: Ultrasound is a safe, non-invasive and inexpensive way to look at the structure of internal organs and is a good first imaging study to investigate WBC in urine.

Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. 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, if you have sex. ...Read more

Incomplete info: How enlarged is thyroid? Any family history of goiter? Are you from an area where the soil is deficient in iodine? What were the actual results of blood tests? All lab 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. ...Read more
Different ways: Tumor markers, or blood tests for certain cancers can be used for screening, or to evaluate treatment. They are not "diagnostic" of cancer, and some are more specific than others. Psa is specific for prostate cancer but elevated psa is not diagnostic for prostate ca. Cea is useful for evaluating several types of cancer once diagnosed, but isn't at all a screening test. ...Read more
