High Sodium In Blood Test Results
Got the results of a blood test. Low sodium and creatinine..I'm on lisinipril and hctz. Could that have caused it? Also have pain under low-right ribs
Too much alcohol: The combination of lisinopril, HCTZ, and 3 alcohol drinks a day can cause low sodium. That's too much alcohol - sorry. The pain under your right ribs may be originating in your liver or gall-bladder as both live there. That should be checked. Low creatinine (even below the lab reference) is not harmful and reflects your muscle mass and normal kidney function. (I presume you're pretty small). ...Read more
These are some blood test results and maybe urine, RBC 3.93 M/mcL ,Hgb POC 11.9 g/DL, Sodium Lvl 132 mol/L,Osmolality 256 mOsm/kg. They r low. Ideas?
Out of Context: One cannot interpret labs without the whole panel there. A doctor providing your an interpretation needs medical history, the reason the tests were ordered and the whole test. You are asking the impossible with these lab values out of context. ...Read more
My wife had a second blood test and results as follows. Creatinine 36.0 umol/L. Sodium 1.38 umol/L and potassium 4.4 umol/L what does this mean?
Hard to interpret : Blood tests can't be taken out of context. They are only a part of any physician's evaluation and must be interpreted along with the history and physical exam. Also need to know the normal ranges for the particular laboratory. I suspect the sodium is 138, not 1.38, and that is usually within the normal range. So is potassium. Creatinine = 36/88.4=0.41mg/dl seems low. High creatinine is worrisome. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I take 25 mg thyroxine sodium tablet every day (tsh 9.6) will taking medicine affect repeated blood test result?
Yes!!!: But you'll need to take enough of it. In other words, you should repeat your TSH in 6wks after starting your levothyroxine. In fact, check every 6wks after a dose change. Tsh should decrease as you take higher doses. But watch for side effects, too. Aim for TSH in lower half of your lab's reference range w/o suffering from palpitations, tremors, anxiety, insomnia, etc. Keep in close contact w/doc. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Hi kidney profile blood test. Result is below reference range. Sodium 134 mmol/l range is 136 - 145. What does this mean please. Thanks?
Almost normal: 134 may be normal for you. Normal tests are the central 95% of the distribution in health people. In other words, 5% of normal people have some abnormal lab values. ...Read more
