Total protein, 24 hr urine
is this good or bad?
(protein, urine, qn <=11 mg/dl -my result <6)
protein, 24 hr urine -unable to calculate. A1c, kidney panel, ua, lipid normal
Urine results: Your urine shows that you have virtually no protein in your urine, which is a good thing. Patients with proteinuria have an increased rate of kidney failure, heart attacks and strokes which is related to the amount of protein in the urine both in diabetic and non-diabetic patients. What was the reason for the urine collection? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Urine labs received with out a reference. Creatine 32, protein 12.1, pro/ cret ratio .38. Are these results with in normal range?
This: This is an estimate of how much protein you are spilling in your urine. You are spilling some, but not a large amount to typically warrant a biopsy if the numbers are correct. Your rheumatologist may still want you to see a nephrologist or kidney doctor to see if they can minimize any protein spillage. ...Read more
Serum -tiny IgM kappa monoclonal protein b2 region, urine - tiny IgM k paraproteinemia in gamma region. Was a mistake made or is lab normal?

Insurance blood/urine tests showed creatinine 1.3, positive/high hemoglobin and white blood cells 20 -- what does this mean?
(GP says VitB12Normal)True? Serum result 155 ng/L Range 130.00-800.00ng/LSerumFolate 12.2Range 4.00-20.00ug/L MPV 9.9fL Range 6.50-20.00fL
Anemia evaluation: Your doctor appears to have taken the "shotgun" approach to evaluation of anemia and ordered the common and easily fixable substances. It is usually more cost effective to start with the basic CBC values-- rbc count, MCV, and RDW and work selectively from there. Your normal values mean that if you match the reference population chances are low that these are indicative of disease. ...Read more
UA Automated = 3 RBC's but neg for blood. Hospital lab Ref. range 0 - 1/HPF All other values norm. Cystoscopy excellent. MRU all clear. Why RBC's?
My lab test results says. Bun/ creatinine ratio results 28, units h , reference interval lab 8-20. Can someone please tell me what this means.
What are the results: Of BUN and creatinine? Ratios often distort the meaning of raw 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 one needs to know the actual values to provide an opinion. ...Read more
Doc, my urine samples shows, transparency - hazy, reaction-6.5, color-pale straw, Specific gravity-1.015, WBC- 3-5/hpf, RBC- 0-1. somthing wrong?
Probably not bad: Why was your urine sample taken? Did the sample report an excessive amount of epithelial cells? Do you have any pain urinating or is there pain in your bikini area? Answers to the questions are needed. If the urine was just part of a routine visit for annual female exam or physical, the urine findings probably do not represent infection or disease. If worried, have MD run a culture on a new sample ...Read more
My lab reports are serum creatinine 80, GFR 72, and creatinine clearance 69.9. my 24 hr urine creatinine was 6.9 and spot urine 2.2. What does it mean?
Not much: You're 55 years old and -- congratulations -- a recovered problem drinker. Unless you're especially fit or heavily-muscled, your creatinine may be a bit high and maybe your kidneys are getting old -- but this level is perfectly compatible with good health and if you had serious kidney disease, it would be a lot worse by now. Eat sensibly, stay fit and I bet your kidneys will last a lifetime. ...Read more
Microscopic urine test shows: rbc, ua my value 5-10 with standard range being 0-2, bacteria, ua showing rare, everything else is within normal range! ?
OK/keep checking,,: This is near negligible but it's good to keep checking. You've had bleeding after menopause, hormone therapy, and polypectomy and dnc, all of which can result in bleeding. That this is so slight is very good, but get a repeat ua next exam or go in sooner if there's bloody urine as that might mean a kidney or bladder issue. Best of luck. ...Read more
My semen test result is
viscosity: very low
total spermatozoae count: 67 million/ml
Volume less than: Normal. Count and ph normal. Morphology is important and cannot be evaluated from the information you provided. The findings do not exclude your ability to father a child. See this site for more information. http://www.webmd.com/infertility-and-reproduction/guide/semen-analysis. ...Read more
Do these lab results mean I have a bleeding issue/thin blood? Mpv 9.0 fl l, bun 7mg/dl l, bun/creat ratio 8 l, alb/glob 0.9 l. L=low. Can u translate?
Inconclusive: For the most part, the tests that you list are important in the context of what other numbers are. Mpv is a measure of the plumpness of your platelets, and platelets are important for blood clotting. But, the actual number of platelets (should be >150) is usually more important for bleeding issues. If that number is fine, then this slightly low mpv level could just represent a mild viral infection. ...Read more

Same lab. Two results vary. Vit. D3 value on Tues. drawn at Labcorp was 87.3. Vit. D3 value in dr. office but same lab on Fri. was 105. 17.7 dif?
Not unusual: Lab tests always have a certain level of imprecision or range of error. It may be that this range of error is larger for this test. But the important fact it that your Vitamin D3 level is adequate. If anything it is slightly above normal which is not clinically important. ...Read more
Urine pH was 9. Past results: 7.5 in 2/13, 6.5 in 3/13 and 7 in 10/13. Likely lab error, diet or something else? All other labs were normal.
If the lab tech touched the specimen tubes in centerfuge with bare hands then put on gloves and drawn my labs could I have catch a disease?
Likely not.: If your skin is intact without any cuts or open wound, transmission of infection is less likely. Infectious agents in blood is likely to be transmitted more than urine, sputum and saliva through open wounds, mucous membranes in the mouth etc. Frequent hand washing with soap and water is a must in our job environment. Be careful next time! ...Read more
I am going for labs for ongoing stomach/chest pain but they say 6 tubes may be needed, more than usual 4. Can they just use 4 tubes versus 6 for labs?
LAB TESTIMG: It depends on the labs your doctor ordered. Check with your doctor if you need to be fasting. If you are worried about getting too much drawn on one day, ash Jim to give two lab orders and break up the draw. ...Read more
31 y/o ttc for 1year. Seen ob/gyn & fertility md, all labs & anatomy wnl except cervix stenosed & l fallopian tube removed. Is Clomid (clomiphene) next step?
Accurate?: The ANA is fraught with technical difficulties, but it's also critical that you understand how nonspecific a positive ANA is, even at a fairly high titer like 1:160. Perhaps one older person in 4 has a positive ANA and it proves nothing -- the vast majority of healthy. It's only one piece of a diagnostic puzzle. Hope this helps -- if not please repost and let us know exactly what' s up. ...Read more
Recently I was overwhelmed and took a lorazepam that wasn't (.5 mg) mine. If I passed an at home drug test would a pass a lab Corp drug screen?
6,000 IU Vit D3 daily = reading of 100 (norm high @ Lab Corp). Serum Calcium is 11.1 w/ 10.3 high norm. Take 200 mg Calcium daily. Age 65 Concern?
I believe you are: taking too much vitamin D3. For general purposes, including osteoporosis prevention, doses of 1000-1500 IU daily are usually recommended. Even though your reading is "high normal", it could still be contributing to your higher serum calcium level. Prefer to get calcium from the diet rather than through supplements. Review with your doctor. Stay well:) ...Read more
My RBC in past year just below borderline high or just above it. In chronological order (Lab corp range is 4.14 to 5.80) have tested 5.7, ABOVE normal 5.87, 5.75, 5.78 and 5.96. In all tests EXCEPT the latest normal hematocrit and normal Hemoglobin. last
Looks normal to me: the range is suppose to include 95% of people, which means its ok to be a little above or a little below the range. But, there are more numbers in that test that have to be looked at too and will help understand the whole picture. ...Read more
Most of the time: A hematopathologist is a clinical scientist who analyzes blood samples, body fluids, and human tissue to identify disease and disorders in the human body. They use sophisticated equipment to test blood to create reports for physicians so that they can make accurate patient diagnosis. Sometimes they perform bone marrow biopsies in patients for diagnosis of marrow disease and metastasis. ...Read more

Anemia: I assume you mean 7.6 for the hemogobin, which is anemia - too few red blood cells. The MCV is the volume, or size of the red blood cells. If the body doesn't have some key nutrients (b12, folate, (folic acid) etc) it cannnot put the cells together well and they end up large (mcv > 100). With iron eficiency the MCV is often low. Your doctor will probably start by checking those levels. ...Read more
Corn starch: There will be somebody peddling fear of anything, but cornstarch is as harmless as you'll find. Some of the talc in old gloves contained asbestos which is dangerous, though I'm undecided whether it posed any significant cancer risk. Don't worry -- these old gloves are gone. ...Read more

Rheumatoid factor: This blood test assesses formed antibodies circulating in your blood that associate with rheumatoid arthritis. Your test result is low - so it does not indicate the classic disease. Still, RA is a complex illness that can develop and express over time. Classic features include symmetric joint pains, stiffness, and redness of proximal knuckle joints as well as other symmetric joint pains. ...Read more
