How  do you check hCG level? Is there an at home test?

Yes.: Hcg is a hormone that rises predictably after becoming pregnant. There are at home tests (urine dipstick test) that simply test for the presence of HCG at a certain concentration found in pregnancy, but a blood draw in a doctor's office or hospital is required to determine the absolute HCG level. ...Read more

LMP 8/5/16, HCG level was 367 the same day as the positive home test but has dropped every 2 days -now 26, but no bleeding or cramping...miscarriage??

Sounds like it: If you have been having BHCG every 2 days since Aug 5th it seems to me you would also have seen a doctor by now who is ordering the blood tests. It is important that your doctor go over your results with you and explain the plan of care . A falling BHCG level is typically indicative a miscarriage. Please confirm with your doctor who has all of your information ...Read more

What medical conditions could cause abnormal creatinine levels in an etg test ?

What medical conditions could cause abnormal creatinine levels in an etg test ?

How high?: When i was lifting weights every day, my creatinine was usually 1.7 mg/dl, and elite bodybuilders have up to 2.0 or so. This is perfectly healthy. Simply being dehydrated or popping a little too much Motrin can up the creatinine enough to get noticed, or serious kidney disease can be the cause. Don't treat a lab value -- your physician can determine the big picture. ...Read more

Had my A1C checkefd about a year ago it was 7.2. I just did a home test and it is now 6.1 is that better?

Had my A1C checkefd about a year ago it was 7.2. I just did a home test and it is now 6.1 is that better?

Depends: An Aic level of 7.2 means that you are diabetic. Have you been on treatment for diabetes? If you were extremely compliant with the treatment, it is possible that your A1c level is 6.1 and that would be good. However, home tests are not as accurate as lab tests. If you have not been under treatment, you should consult your doctor at the earliest. ...Read more

Kidney disease: This requires knowledge of the cause of the kidney failure and the value of serum electrolytes. Even if acidosis is present you can't home remedy it by given quantities of baking soda without knowing the precise amount of sodium bicarbonate you're administering and daily measuring of electrolytes. The physician or nephrologist who knows the case is best qualified to render proper care and followup ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. Normally a fetus would have to be quite a few weeks along to have quickening (feeling fetal movement). If that were the case, not only would your pregnancy tests be positive but there would be many other signs of pregnancy. Are you longing to have a baby? Sometimes women who really want to have a baby, can have pregnancy symptoms even though they aren't pregnant. Psychiatrists or clinical psychologists can often help if that is the case. Take care. ...Read more

I am 8days late , and I took 4 home test and they came out negative . What should I do ?

Relax!: First thing, relax! Often times, stress can change a woman's periods--have you noticed more stress in your life? Graduation, weddings, work? If you haven't seen your period start in the next week, I would suggest getting an appointment with your gyno. She may be able to do a blood test to further assess if anything is going on. Good luck! ...Read more
