Increase Haemoglobin Levels By Munakka
Total calcium level 10.5( elevated by .5) total protein 8.8( elevated by .8)albumin 5.2(elevated by .2)phosphorus 2.3(decreased by .2) worrisome or no?
Not really worrisome: These lab values are not all that abnormal and really in most cases are not to worry about as they are. It also depends on if you are having problems. If you had these drawn you must of had an order from your healthcare professional and you should also check with them and see if there is a problem that they are concerned about. Please check with them on the final decision. I hope this helped. ...Read more
After neonatal : After the neonatal stage, for non-pregnant individuals all blood sugars fall under the same categorization for normal. Fasting serum glucose should be between about 65-99 mg/dl and 2 hours following a meal or oral glucose tolerance test, normal serum blood sugar should be less than 140 mg/dl. ...Read more
I have low vit d(18), ldl(158). Is there a possibility that vitamin d deficiency raise LDL levels? If so 60, 000iu per week dosage reduce LDL levels.
No Relationship: No relationship has been shown between low vitamin d and high ldl. However, studies do show patients with low vitamin d may not tolerate statins well due to muscle aches, pain or weakness. Limited data also suggest that supplementing with vitamin d3 can improve tolerance to statins. Due to poor absorption of high doses many physicians recommend 5, 000 - 10, 000 iu daily instead of 50, 000 iu weekly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hyperparathyroidism: The parathyroids make a hormone, PTH, which mobilizes calcium from your bones and keeps blood calcium normal. Overactive parathyroids make too much PTH, raising blood Ca, and leeching Ca out of your bones (Osteoporosis) and too much gets into kidney (kidney stones). Kidney disease can cause this, but often it is from an abnormal parathyroid gland that must be removed surgically. ...Read more

red cell Mycrocytosis
How bad Are my levels?
How can I increase levels?
Iron + multivitamins: You should try taking more iron. Try taking it with every meal. Also add multivitamins with folic acid and B12, to your routine. If in 6 months your iron levels do not improve, you should discuss getting iron intravenously, with your doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
I had borderline high C-peptide. By removing sugar from diet it lowered significantly. Approximately how many grams of sugar i can consume per day to maintain the lowered level of c-peptide?
Extra insulin: The C-Peptide tells you that you are making insulin from your pancreas. what you really want to look at is if you have an elevated Hemoglobin A-C which helps to determine if you have Diabetes or Insulin Resistance. You need to restrict the simple sugar that you consume. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can taking bovine colostrum increase plasma immunoglobulin levels, thereby masking an underlying immunoglobulin deficiency by altering blood tests?
Unlikely: Very thoughtful idea. Unfortunately, the bovine immunoglobins are too large to be absorbed from the intestine and would be digested by stomach and intestinal juices and enzymes. With use you would be providing body with raw materials for making your own immunoglobulins, but at a cost. Any "complete" proteins from eggs or milk could provide the same protein precursors and support good health. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, in general: If the iron level is low for long enough the hemoglobin will go down. So a normal hemoglobin level tells us that there is no significan iron deficiency...Yet you can have mild iron deficit yet have a normal hemoglobin. So it does not equate with iron levels exactly but more or less...So it is good, not a perfect substitute. ...Read more
Would a diet high in protein lead to increased kidney levels? level was slightly high upon admit, increased after given concentrated protein in food
Creatine in muscle: Muscles r mostly made of protein. Creatine (Cr) is from muscle breakdown & a blood test measuring it is often used 2 estimate how well the kidneys work. (Note high Cr means worse kidneys). Cr is also sold as a protein powder for body builders, but 1-2 servings shdn't raise the Cr very much. Regular intake, I suppose, cd have an effect. More likely something else was damaging ur kidney or muscles. ...Read more
