My metanephrine free urine was 51, blood test was 63, normetanephrine free urine 181, blood test 150- total urine 232, blood test 213. Normal?

My metanephrine free urine was 51, blood test was 63, normetanephrine free urine 181, blood test 150- total urine 232, blood test 213. Normal?

Sounds normal if....: the upper limits for blood metanephrine and normetanephrine are 0.50nm/l and 0.90nm/l. Urinary levels are, respectively: Total 24 hr. metanephrine =1.3mg for urine; and total plasma ME+NME is less than 205pg/ml. It sound as though you're within the normal ranges, but depending on the units of measure, which vary from lab to lab and med ctr to med ctr., you may not. Meet w/ your endocrinologist. ...Read more

Loss of early: pregnancy. If the tests you described were done correctly, it suggests spontaneous loss of an early pregnancy. About 25% of early pregnancies are lost, mostly due to chromosomal defects in the embryo. Usually the only manifestation is a slightly heavy, delayed period. Wish you good health. ...Read more

Thick blood , high inflammation levels abnormal liver function in all 3 blood tests, test back pos for blood clot on lung after dye test, back neg?

This is serious: I trust the dye test was a pulmonary angiogram that demonstrated a pulmonary thromboembolus, and it has also been determined that you have hypercoagulable blood. This is a major problem that will require work with your primary care physician and probably long-term medical management -- more than healthtap can do. Hope you do not smoke. The "inflammation" & liver labs need to be addressed in time. ...Read more

Preg symptoms. Took 4 urine tests all neg. blood test neg as well. Would be 14 weeks. Possible to have a false negative blood test at 14 weeks?

No: The fact that you have had multiple negative pregnancy tests at 14 weeks mean you are not pregnant. Most home pregnancy tests are just as accurate as a blood test. There are many reasons for missed periods other than pregnancy. If it has been 3 months without a period see you gynecologist. ...Read more

No contrast.: Do you know why your urine and creatinine are abnormal? Treating that first, if you can, would be ideal. It looks like you should have an MRI without contrast to avoid Nephrogenic Fibrosing Dermopathy/Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis, debilitating conditions with no cure. ...Read more

What mean the folowing blood results:? Rbc = 5.19, hct = 40.5 %, irf 9.9% , retic 1.2 %, hapto 138 mg/dl. Testing was done due to 12.8 hgb.

Appears fine: Depending upon the lab where the tests where drawn a HGB of 12.8 could be normal. Rbc and hct above appear normal as does the retic count and haptoglobin levels. Irf ranges between labs may vary but usually include 9 and 10 as within normal. Overall i would say there are no abnormal values in the ones presented above. ...Read more

Results from 2hr oggt: blood draws: 1/2 hr=230; 1hr=292; 2hr=250 blood tests are negative for diabetes. Is this glucose intolerance or insulin ?

Results from 2hr oggt:
blood draws: 1/2 hr=230; 1hr=292; 2hr=250
blood tests are negative for diabetes.
Is this glucose intolerance or insulin ?

Diabetes: This is consistent with diabetes. The 2 hour after challenge should be < 140. If 140-199, that's prediabetes. I'm not sure what you mean by "blood tests negative for diabetes." go back to your doctor and ask for a test called a1c. This will confirm and tell you the severity of the diabetes. ...Read more

2 abno protein means? Help

More info needed: Your HIV test results are nearly conclusive you don't have it. Otherwise, I can't help much. Ask your doctor directly. I don't understand requesting HIV genotype except in someone with confirmed infection; the test can't even be done unless RNA or DNA positive for HIV. Maybe you misunderstood? There are many causes of "abnormal" urine protein and HIV isn't one of them as far as I know. Good luck. ...Read more
