CT doesnt show TIAs: It doesn't even show strokes unless large or post acute stage. But, in you age a TIA is rare anyways. Hi glucose means diabetes. If you have had it for 10-15 years, then TIA remains on the list. Kidney function is little low for your age. Gfr should be above 110. Albumin, if in urine suggests long years of diabetes, among others. Autoimmune should be tested but is not very likely, tho possible. ...Read more

Should i be concerned, high baso, eos, and potassium on labs. Low mpv. I've been very fatigued and had sinus tach on ekg. Waiting for insurance.

We need details: Sometimes what shows up as abnormal on labs is very near the border of normal and so insignificant. Sinus tachycardia is a rapid heartbeat but it could be minimal like 100 or more concerning like 120. ...Read more

What can cause a high IgM 392 mg/dl, low mpv 7.1 fl, high mchc 37.2 g/dl, and high rdw14.3?

What can cause a high IgM 392 mg/dl, low mpv 7.1 fl, high mchc 37.2 g/dl, and high rdw14.3?

Can't tell: Isolated labs are not how doctors make diagnoses. History is the most important part of a medical evaluation. Why were the labs performed? The mpv is a measure of average platelet size; it is only meaningful if platelets are decreased. Mildly elevated igm levels can indicate infection or immune dysregulation. The RDW and MCHC are red blood cell properties. Many healthy people have these results. ...Read more

Low mpv (9.1), low neutrophil (34), high lymphocyte (48), high monocyte (9), high eosinophil (9). 17 yrs old li fraumeni female. Should i worry?

Low mpv (9.1), low neutrophil (34), high lymphocyte (48), high monocyte (9), high eosinophil (9).  17 yrs old li fraumeni female. Should i worry?

No: I often wish labs would not even report the percentages. Only the absolute values matter. The fact that you have li fraumeni means you must educate yourself about how to spot cancers early. This will greatly enhance your chances for a long, happy life. The only tip-off that a blood count will give is if there are abnormal cells circulating. ...Read more

That's not possible: to answer without an exam, history, and other basic elements of a medical assessment. You do have a local doctor since these tests were requested. What does your doc say about these things and why they were checked? You have lab values, but there is no detail about how you are feeling. That's the most important part. Abnormal labs in isolation are usually meaningless. Ask your doctor ?s. ...Read more

I had a pre employment blood test and had high RDW and low mpv, is this something to worry about?

I had a pre employment blood test and had high RDW and low mpv, is this something to worry about?

No not at all: If your CBC is normal, these two values have little significance. I would ignore them but make sure your hb, WBC and platelet counts are normal. ...Read more
