Had blood test amylase 64 of 90u/l normal & lipase 67 of 13-60 u/l normal range . Ultrasound normal , pancreatitis? Feel gastric after day of alcohol
Those are close: to the normal range and not necessarily a problem. cannot say in your particular case, but generally, tests that are within 5% of the normal range are not indicative of much. Furthermore alcohol certainly causes damage to the pancreas and some drinking can cause some (small) changes in lab tests at levels below that causing serious toxicity. ...Read more
Ihave a low count of lymphocytes of 12the range of 16-40 and high count of neutrophils of 82 between a range of 44-74 had chlyamdia week before?
Cbc and chlamydia : Yep, that sounds about right. Your body was fighting the infection. You had a surge of neutrophils that were recruited, by then your lymphocytes had done the job and were depleted on the front lines of the battle. No worries, and no need to recheck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Have thyroid range of T3 (liothyronine) count of 34 and T4 of 7.2 and TSH of 5.7. Tsh is alittle out of range. Do i need to take meds for this? Or is it okay?
Yes.: Symptoms of hypothyroidism include fatigue, weight gain, hair loss, dry skin, cracked nails, constipation, others. Since your TSH is a little above normal, meaning your body thinks your thyroid level is low, it makes good sense to take a low dose of thyroid hormone to get you in the normal range. ...Read more
I have a low count of lymphocytes of 12 between the range of 16-40 and a high count of neutrophils of 82 between a range of 44-74 No symptoms ?
Meaningless, ignore: If generally healthy, i.e. no known health problems, you can ignore this result. Probably it is meaningless. There is a reason that healthy people without symptoms shouldn't have blood counts. They aren't very precise and healthy people have day to day variation in results. And yours aren't very abnormal anyway. Siscuss w/ the doc who ordred the test, but probably no reason to worry. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What's the minimum volume of urine required for drug and other various general tests? I gave nearly 1/4 quantity of standard size cup. Is it ok?
Tests can be: be performed on a very small quantity (DIPSTICK) for drugs (opiates, cocaine etc) but a CERTAIN AMOUNT is needed for CONFIRMATION of POSITIVES or other more complex drugs (antu-depressants etc) Generally the amount you gave should be the required amount or you should not have been allowed to leave the testing site!

Which test results are more important: T3 (liothyronine) total or free t3 (liothyronine)? If total t-3 is low and free t-3 is low, almost out of range w/symptoms, treatment?
Free results,,,: The most important result by far is the freet4 as this indicates how much available active thyroid hormone is circulating. Free t3 (liothyronine) is also important as T4 is converted into t3 (liothyronine) and is more active. Tsh is also important as this and free T4 help indicate whether or not a person is hypothyroid. But free results are more important as this indicates the amount of active hormone. Good luck. ...Read more

Is 150-175 grams of carbs a day consider extreme that it would effect my t3 (liothyronine) level? Results 46 in range of 76-115
Is a lab result of 48% for lymphocytes and 9.7 Bun/creatnin of any concern. Low vitamin D/25 hdroxy 21.5....Ige level of 497. Thank you?
Out of context: Lab values out of context = difficult to interpret. "Abnormal" may be irrelevant, even normal for an individual.Experts disagree on low end of normal 25-OH vit D(some say 20 some 30).IgE can be high for many reasons, most allergic.BUN/Cr relevance depends on what BUN and Cr are - if normal, low BUN/Cr can be malnutrition, liver problem, or OK. Lymphocyte% relevance depends on wbc, neutrophil% etc. ...Read more

Do I qualify for a iron infusion therapy with a hemoglobin of 9 and iron of 21 L and iron sat of 5L?
First things first: You must ask first why you are iron deficient. Heavy periods? Pregnancies? Could you be pregnant now? Non-supplementing vegetarian? Bleeding stomach ulcer / cancer? Iron infusions are not for casual use, though they are easier on the gut than iron tablets. There are injectable forms too. Do yourself a favor and focus on the big picture. ...Read more

For my fragmented sleep pdoc offered 1mg of clonazepam, or 25mg of chlorpromazine? Which one is less dangerous short term (month or two of use) ?
Safe or efficacious?: Sleep hygiene is the most essential element to sound, restful sleep. For short-term use, 25mg of Chlorpromazine is a small dose--that's probably less dangerous. Clonazepam 1mg is more likely to help with fragmented sleep, but just 1 month seems a short trial. Either way, good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Would an FT3 of 5.4 (range 2.2 - 4.0) and a TBG of 32 (range 14-31) with aTSH of 1.6 and a FT4 of 1.12 be considered normal?
Yes: 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, the information you provided is not a cause for concern. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
