With congestive heart failure or coronary ischemia would the oxygen saturation shown on the monitor at hospitals drop?
Simple answer is that it is a medical technology used primarily to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. Hemodialysis remove wastes and excess water from the blood by circulating blood outside the body through an external filter, called a dialyzer. Blood and dialysate flow through in opposite directions and the ...Read more

Aunt kidney problem creatinine 17. Kidney size normal dr. Says chances of revival ofkidney function. Biopsy sent. Passes urine.Can kidney revive age60?
Creatinine of 17?: Are you sure that your aunt's creatinine (c) is 17, not 1.7? If her c is 17, she should be on dialysis. A biopsy would not be done in someone that high a c. If the c is 1.7, it seems that she had a glomerulonephritis, the cause of which needs to be determined for a diagnosis and prognosis. The best way to get more information about your aunt is to call the doctor who ordered the renal biopsy. ...Read more

Nothing by itself: There is probably a very mild anemia, the white count is minimally up, and as far as I am concerned the platelets are still in the healthy range. As a lab specialist, I am always reminding people that labs mean nothing apart from the history and physical exam. I can raise my white count to this level taking a cold shower. If you feel well and there are no abnormal cells reported, be thankful. ...Read more
Blood results showed high MCHC 36.2 (normal range said 31.5 - 35.7). Other stuff ok, Hemoglobin was 15.8 (range said 11.1 - 15.9). MCH 32.6 ?
No worry: 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. Having said that, none of your results are a cause for concern. Do follow your doctor's advice for follow-up care. Next time you get the test done, drink a couple of glasses of water in the morning before the test. ...Read more

Unknown: We are much better at answering what DID NOT cause such an event than what did. Follow your doctor's recommendations regarding referrals for such things as cardiology and neurology referral.

I've had open heart surgery about 8 years ago, aneurism repair and metal aortic valve replacement. INR is 2.1(low),I wake up with blood in mouth, dark?
Contact your MD: Based on your health history and that fact that you have INR testing, you are likely taking warfarin or a different blood thinner in which case you should contact your doctor and let them know you are experiencing bleeding. It may also be a good idea to contact a dentist as it is not normal for your mouth to be bleeding and there may be an underlying teeth or gum problem causing this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What kind: I am unfamiliar with also pressure hydrocephalus- did you spell the type correctly? For most causes of hydrocephalus, the type determines the treatment and forecast. The diabetes-how long, level of control, other vascular issues, and meds also figure in to the forecast you are seeking. Too complicated for this format. ...Read more
Urine creatinine 24hour is 18.5 (7.1-17.7mmol/d) and my urine protein 24hour is 0.14 (<0.15g/d), I have IgM k monocloncal protein in b2 what is this?
Stop worrying: Reference ranges are where most people fall; there's no reason at all to get upset about a trivially high creatinine on a test that is done only to make a ratio with the albumin, which seems quite normal, thanks. My own guess is that your physician is eager to reassure you, and i'd urge you to accept this. There's much good in your life & future -- keep your eyes there. ...Read more
