Not enough info: The diagnosis of herpes is usually made based on painful lesions at the point of sexual contact and a history of potential exposure - scraping of lesions also can culture the virus, interpretation of blood tests depends on the timing (length of time between exposure or symptoms and the test). These results don't diagnose a recent infection, but can't interpret without more information. ...Read more

You should discuss your lab interpretations with a specialist, especially given your history of thyroid cancer. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Examples would include Lactic Acid built up in cells that undergo anaerobic metabolism, or acids that build up such as ketoacids in the face of diabetes. A 2 vessel cord suggests a kidney or genetic anomaly and should have a genetics and nephrology evaluation. ...Read more
How high?: It's important to know how high the tests were above the normal range (were they clinically significant?). Cortisol is produced by the adrenal glands which is under control by the pituitary. The problem could be either one. Your doctor who ordered the cortisol should be able to tell you the next step of workup. If the tests were indeed very high, you will need more testings before treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Interpretation: Serum creatinine is affected by protein intake, gender, age, race, muscular build, and renal function. A rising creatinine is always of concern. "normal" on lab tests is generally less than 1.2 mg/dl. Renal function can be estimated with a more complex formula or measured with a 24 h urine collection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Significance of mildly low IgG(691; 700-1600) & mildly high IgA(400; 90-386)? IgM ok. No monoclonal protein on serum electropho/immunofix & not getting sick more often. Am I immunocompromised? Will rabies vaccine fail? Titer >.5 IU/ml in Oct 2015.
Blood tests: There are a few diseases that leap out from blood tests. Most of the time, however, blood tests don't tell the doctor much on their own. These results fall into the second group, not very specific. Your remark that you are not getting sick more often is the best indication that your immune system is working well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Thyroid nodule. FNA benign. male. Last 2 tests. TSH high normal 4.0, and 4.2. FT4 Normal. TPO AB high at 39 (0-9 range)
do I need medication?
No: One of the questions with regard to thyroid nodules pertains to number and activity of the nodule. If on scan one sees several nodules, the dx for the most part is goiter. FNA can easily miss the nodule or can be read as an adenoma. A functional scan should be performed. If hot the nodule should be left alone. If the solitary nodule is cold there is a 30% chance the nodule is or will be Ca. ...Read more
