High Co2 Levels In Blood Test
HIgh protein level: High blood protein (hbp) level can be caused by dehydration causing bengin elevation of proteins. Other more serious causes of hbp are chronic inflammation, ameyloidosis, hiv/aids, multiple myeloma and monoclonical gammopathies. I would suggest your seeing an hematologist if the cause of your hbp is not due to dehydration as soon as you can to arrive at the correct cause of your hbp level. ...Read more
Glucose and CO2: Was the co2 level of 60 you wrote about seen on a blood gas result? That shows the person is retaining co2 has chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (copd). A glucose of 305 indicates the patient is a diabetic, either newly diagnosed or poorly controlled. Disturbances in glucose metabolism are more common in COPD patients than in COPD free individuals. Ask the patient's physician for more info. ...Read more
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. Having said that, uric acid levels in urine are not meaningful, it is the blood level that counts. A few red cells in urine are not abnormal, and trace may be the same. It would be prudent to discuss the issue with your doctor who ordered the tests. ...Read more
Is it normal to show no white blood cells in a urine test when showing high levels of nitrates in urine test?
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.
Diluted urine: A low creatinine is not from elevated sugars, but from excessive water drinking, which is common in diabetics. It means you are drinking enough water to dilute your urine. It is not dangerous, but most drug tests will be considered "adulterated" - a failed test - if the creatinine is below 20. Get your diabetes under control asap. Continued high sugars are dangerous to your health. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Tsh or thyroid stimulating hormone is only good for assessing thyroid function (either good, overactive or underactive). With that said, during that same blood draw, your blood could potentially be checked for testosterone to determine how much you have. This is best done in the morning. Remember that we really should treat the person (and symptoms), not just a number. Make sure benefit > risk. ...Read more

Does high monocytes and low amount of WBC in blood test indicate infection? and what does high amorphous sediment in urine test mean?
These mean nothing: Only a very high absolutely monocyte count is of any concern if you feel well, and low WBC is of concern if and only if lymphs or neuts are way-way low. If you're sick, this whispers "rule out typhoid". Amorphous sediment is simply stuff that was soluble at body temperature but crystallized as the urine cooled. It means nothing at all. ...Read more
My hormone tests came in with high 3α-Androstanediol, high aldrosterone, high aldosterone, high 5a-THB, elevated 5α-reductase, and low 11b-hydroxyetiocholanolone. What can this mean?

These are unusual blood tests, and typically only performed when, usually a specialist, has a specific diagnosis in mind. I'm certain you can receive a better, more satisfying explanation by working with the doctor who ordered these tests. Pursuing that is your best option. Good wishes:) ...Read more
Blood test report: homocysteine level high/ blood platelets low/ bilirubin high. What could be wrong?
Big picture please: As a lab doctor, this means nothing in isolation. I appreciate your caring & this is no familiar pattern. Is the person clinically healthy? How off are the values? Vegetarians and junk-fooders are equally at risk for high homocysteine as are folks with genetic disease. Bilirubin -- gilbert's? Platelets -- gin and tonic? This isn't something to discuss in a 400-character text thx 4 understanding. ...Read more
