Elevated D Dimer In Pregnancy
Worried oxygen levels were 93-97% d dimer was negative but they had no rxplanatation for low oxygen level?
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
Not really: D dimer is a marker of clotting. Blood clots in the legs and lungs are associated with elevation. It will also go up with injuries and surgery. Blood pressure may go up as a complication of a blood clot in the lungs or because of the injury or surgery, but elevated BP should not cause increase in d dimer, or vice versa. ...Read more

Lab results show high Bili total (1.2mg/dL) and high albumin (5.2 g/dL) and low vit D (18.8m=ng/dL). My Dr was only concerned about the Vit D level?
Maybe nothing?: I agree with your doctor that the vitamin D needs to be addressed. I would typically recommend an OTC vitamin D3 supplement...probably 2000 a 5000 IU daily with a meal. The bilirubin may mean some slight liver stress...Even moderate alcohol intake, for example. The albumin? Probably won't stay elevated. Recheck labs in 3-6 months IMO. And try milk thistle for liver health perhaps? Good luck! ...Read more
D-dimer: D-dimer is a blood test used to help detect clots in your body or those that have embolized to your lungs. Physicians use d-dimer if they think that you have a low probability of having a clot but want to rule it out. Your test was high so the physician did the appropriate testing to determine if there was a clot. This means that your lab was falsely positive and can be elevated for other reasons ...Read more
Very common: It is very common to see low vitamin d levels in people these days. We make vitamin d by exposure to the sun and many people do not get enough sun exposure or should not because of skin cancer risk. People with low vitamin d can be at risk for chronic pain and may even be at risk for certain cancers. Talk to your doctor about taking a d supplement. ...Read more
3 separate things: ANA is a screening test. A positive result only indicates more testing might be needed to look for autoimmune diseases. Crp means something somewhere in the body is inflamed for some reason (and yes it really is that vague). Low vitamin d means you needs more vitamin d in the diet or in the form of vitamin pills. ...Read more
Hx of kid stones, high protein dt , calcium high in 24 hr urine, serum calc 10.3 at highest .Vit d low norm intact pth 41. Nodules in wrist w pain. ? Asked this before but put TSH instead of pth !
Primary hyperpara: A PTH of 41 with a concurrently high calcium of 10.3 is not normal. Pth and calcium level correlate (inversely) very closely with each other. If ur calcium is high at 10.3, there shouldn't be any PTH around & the level should drop to 5 or 10 but not 41. I would have a frank discussion with ur doctor about possibility of primary hyperparathyroidism (high calcium, kidney stone, high urine calcium). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Wells score for DVT = low. Elevated d-dimer. Negative compression ultrasound of entire leg. Still have cramping in calf. Should i be concerned?
Reassuring: An elevated d-dimer is very nonspecific. Having a low wells score and a negative lower extremity ultrasound is very reassuring that you do not have a dvt. ...Read more
See below: A positive d-dimer is suggestive but not diagnostic or accurate. Chronic diseases and acute illnesses can raise it too. It's only useful if it's low - to rule out a clot. If there's a positive d-dimer and suspicion for clot, an ultrasound of the legs should be done. If suspicion for a lung clot, a ct angiogram or v/q scan of the chest is indicated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
