Complete Blood Workup Includes
From my annual blood workup, TSH came back at 7.0. Tested again two weeks later, it was 0.96. Is this a normal change?
You need a 3rd test: This is possible if you started taking thyroid hormone replacement medication after the first test. If not then in all liklihood there was a lab error with one of the tests. Thyroid levels change very slowly in general and if you don't have symptoms then you probably have normal thyroid function. You need to repeat the test to determine which result is valid. ...Read more

Blood in semen for last 3 mnths. Got U.S last week (normal). Had hemtria in april and july last year. Got cysto., C.T, U.S in august (normal). Worry?

Do children get annual blood work like adults? I have friends whose pedis do some workup every year; mine does not (both kids healthy). What's standard?
They do not: Good news, there is no benefit to performing routine bloodwork in healthy children and even adults. There are certain ages (1 year-old) where tests for anemia or lead levels may be performed (and a few others for adults at certain times). Otherwise testing without a reason is more likely to cause undo harm because lab error becomes more likely than randomly finding an occult treatable illness. ...Read more
