Will high bloodsugar cause low creatin levels in urine? I had blood sugar levels of 300 and above and recently took a drug test that came back having low creatin levels.

Blood test report: homocysteine level high/ blood platelets low/ bilirubin high. What could be wrong?

This isn't something to discuss in a 400-character text thx 4 understanding. ...Read more
No: Tsh or thyroid stimulating hormone is only good for assessing thyroid function (either good, overactive or underactive).

My blood and urine test result are worrying me. it shows high Uric acid levels and traces of blood in urine.
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.

What condition(s) causes someone to have high total serum protein, high albumin, normal globulin and high total calcium levels?
Dehydration.: There are no diseases that specifically increase albumin. Therefore in order to get an elevated concentration there must be a decrease in the amount of water in the system.
