Doctor insights on:
High Serum Phosphate
Low serum phophate/creatinin+phosphate excretion 24h urine, high tubular phophate reabsorption+urine d-pyr/crea ratio. Normal CA/PTH/Dvit/intake. Bad?
Do not worry: probably not problematicGet a more detailed answer ›
High creatinine?: Hi. "Creating" is not a real substance. If you mean creatinine, it means the patient has some degree of kidney disease, probably chronic. At a certain point of chronic kidney disease (CKD), patients are treated with calcitriol. A patient with high serum calcium and phosphorus, high calcitriol, and high creatinine is in kidney failure, on calcitriol, and with serious calcium and phosphate problems. ...Read more
See below: An elevated BUN with normal creatinine and a ratio of [generally more than 18-20] occurs most commonly in dehydrated individuals and is not a sign of kidney damage.It may also occur in in certain other conditions like bleeding in the intestines, artificial nutrition intravenously of Amino Acids and use of steroids.Your doctor determines its significance. ...Read more
Blood results: alt/sgpt serum level=40 iu/l, serum alkaline phosphatase=43 iu/l, serum bilirubin level=2 umol/l, serum urea level=2.3 mmol/l. Normal?
Normal: It is very important to know why these were drawn in what sounds to be an otherwise healthy 19 year old. Did you expect to find something wrong? ...Read more
Inorgan.Phosphate0.77, serum total protein63, serum globulin14, all slightly low. Norm. Calcium &albumin.Tsh9.25, known hypothyroidism. Further tests?
What causes high glucose serum, calcium serum, albumin serum, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol calc, vitamin b12, but low sed rate westergren?
Means nothing alone: As a pathologist who's devoted a lifetime to lab medicine, my teammates and i are always reminding people that lab results mean nothing whatever in the absence of a history & physical exam. Please don't take this the wrong way, and i appreciate your proactive approach to health. But no one can do anything with this. Ask instead, "could high Albumin out-of-range be from dehydration?" etc. ...Read more
Speak with your doc: It sounds as if your doctor is doing a diagnostic work up to include your parathyroic gland. If this is the case she may also order tests to visualize the gland as well as your bones. You may have had a recent fracture or problem that she is addressing. Hope you get to the bottom of it soon. ...Read more
ALT low 30's thru 10-yr illness. Chronic dehydration, low phosphorus, low WBC, high alk phos, L sodium, unstable glucose, H creatinine, L protein?
Not the key: I appreciate your interest in labs. Your ALT is in what most labs count as normal range. You haven't provided actually numbers for any lab, and for those you cite, only very markedly out-of-range values are helpful. No responsible physician would even direct you based on these labs, though it would surprise me if a nephrologist found you to have a mild interstitial nephritis. ...Read more
What does high microalbumin/ creatinine 165.82, high protein/creatinine ratio 0.31. Urine microalbumin 13.1. And total protein25.0 indicate?
Low rbc, high urea nitrogenBUN, high urine osmolality,high urine creatinine random,high UA sodium random,ab. urine epithelial cell,k etones,ur.mucus ?
Dehydrated: 39 F from Indy of unknown ethnicity medical or drugs notes low rbc high bun and high urine Na creat. ANS: sounds like anemia and dehydration or renal disease. The latter is often due to eating too much salt and HTN and choosing the wrong grandparents. Your Dr knows you best so ask them. ...Read more
Need values: 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, it would have helped to know the actual values. It would be prudent to consult your doctor to rule out pre-diabetes or diabetes. ...Read more
Replace vitamin d: Vitamin d deficiency is very common. You need vitamin d to absorb calcium from the intestines. When you don't have enough vitamin d, in order to keep your blood calcium levels normal, your make more PTH to pull calcium from the bones and that raises the alkaline phosphatase. Replacing vitamin d should normalize all the tests. ...Read more
Wrong approach: Alkaline phosphatase is a lab value to tell a physician what is happening, not a medical problem to treat. It can be high just because you're growing (teens tend to be maybe 5x the upper limit of the reference range). About 5% of older folks have a high alk phos for "no reason", presumably paget's of the bone that never becomes evident; nonfasting samples may have it from the intestine. ...Read more
Means nothing alone: Please forgive my frankness. This mishmash of lab results is meaningless apart from your history and physical exam. Reference ranges for labs are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. If you feel well, ignore them. The high hs-CRP may be a heads-up that you've got more atherosclerosis than you think. If you feel well, ignore the rest. ...Read more
What condition(s) causes someone to have high total serum protein, high albumin, normal globulin and high total calcium levels?
Dehydration.: There are no diseases that specifically increase albumin. Therefore in order to get an elevated concentration there must be a decrease in the amount of water in the system. This would also account for the normal globulin. Calcium is bound to Albumin so that elevated Albumin will elevate your calcium levels as well. ...Read more
High WBC, high Neut, low lymph, low K, high glucose, lowRBC, low creatine, high amylase, high AST, urine w/ protein & ketones. Treatment?
Based on the: above lab results, and without any clinical knowledge of patient symptoms and course of disease, I would have to say it's impossible to devise a plan of treatment. Please visit your healthcare provider or begin a Virtual Consult with one of our physicians to discuss diagnostic and treatment options. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more
