High protein level in blood results?

High protein level in blood results?

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

Are low iron levels and high bilirubin levels connected?

Are low iron levels and high bilirubin levels connected?

May be, may be not: Further evaluation is obviously needed. I can't say whether it is related or not without getting more information. In many cases- probably those two are not related. However in a case of colon cancer with metastatic disease to the liver- it can cause both increase of bilirubin level as well as low iron. Go to see your md and discuss further your condition. ...Read more

Does high hemoglobin cause high blood pressure?

No, but...: If a man's hemoglobin is more than 17.5 or thereabouts, it's worth trying to find the cause. Extremely viscous blood (igm, extremely polythemia) may require extra pressure to pump, but in such situations the problem is obvious. ...Read more

Cause of elevated RDW level of 15.4% and normal MCV level in blood?

Different thing: You could have more than one conditons like low in iron and low in vitamin B12 for instance- that would make normal MCV and high rdw. Or you could be just in the very beginning or mild case of low iron- that would present the same in cbc. Go to see your md and get checked. ...Read more

Iron deficiency can increase platelets as can inflammation; high altitude and smoking can raise the red count---a good history and physical are needed. Good luck. ...Read more

Low MCV high red blood cells with abnormal morphology with low neutrophils and high lymphocytes counts?

Low MCV high red blood cells with abnormal morphology with low neutrophils and high lymphocytes counts?

Means nothing alone: In isolation from the patient story, lab tests mean nothing. This is especially true since we have no actual numbers. The low MCV and high rbc would make any physician think of a thalassemia, but it would be criminal to speculate further without knowing more about the person. If this is a you or a family member, you have a right and a duty to request your doctor's thoughts, or get consultation. ...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

Recent labs showed high platelets high iron high tibc low normal ferritin level of 12 is this iron deficiency ?

Recent labs showed high platelets high iron high tibc low normal ferritin level of 12 is this iron deficiency ?

Likely: The best test for iron deficiency anemia (ida) is ferritin. Sometimes when there is inflammation (an possible associated anemia of chronic disease/inflammation, the ferritin may increase as an acute phase reactant). The "gold standard" for diagnosis is a bone marrow biopsy, but rarely needed. High platelets are also associated with ida. Treatment should improve platelets and ferritin. ...Read more
