Mcb Blood Work And Thyroid
Yes: High TSH and high MCV are both seen in hypothyroidism. Were the labs fasting? If not taken fasting, high glucose may not be anything to worry about. Glucose testing to screen for diabetes should always be tested initially with strict fasting. Following up this lab data with your physician is important because you may need thyroid hormone and sequential follow up testing. ...Read more
Can you still have thyroid problems that the basic TSH blood test doesn't show? Is the full TSH blood panel better?
Fatigued all the time - had CBC, thyroid checked, hormones checked, different blood tests, EVERYTHING clear- testosterone is a little low. Help?
Blood work CBC and CMP all normal except BUN high 23 and MCHC low 30 for the past 2 months. Any indications or interpretation?
Will Ashwagandha taken daily effect my blood work done for thyroid levels to be checked? I have Hashimotos and get routine blood work. Effect levels?
Not directly but...: Ashwagandha will not alter the accuracy of blood tests but it may improve thyroid function. Animal studies suggest Ashwagandha may increase levels of thyroid hormone in those who are hypothyroid while reducing levels if hyperthyroid. The effects are usually subtle so I would not expect dramatic changes. It's wise to test levels.

Anemia and thyroid test which i understand but also added a liver and kidney blood test. Why would doc order these tests?
Ask your doc: This question needs to be asked of the doctor who ordered the tests. Without specific clinical information, the question is impossible for me to answer. ...Read more
Maybe: Hashimoto's disease is classically manifested with positive anti thyroid antibodies, usually anti thyroid peroxidase and to a lesser extent, anti thyroglobulin. On the other hand, hypothyroidism is defined by high TSH and/or low t4. If they one thing in common, that will be high or high normal tsh. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Crp was high now normal. Sed rate elevated. Ana+w/speck pattern. Thyroid ok. Metabilic and CBC and urine ok. Little low vitamin d... Any idea?
Labs mean little: CRP and sed rate vary greatly for no obvious reason frmo day to day. A majority of americans run a low vitamin d due to our diets & habits. My one concern is if the ANA is at a high-titer, which warns of lupus or a variety of other possibilities, but labs mean nothing apart from the history and physical exam. ...Read more
What causes low white bloodcells (3.6)and low platelets (135)? Blood clotting, fasting sugar, thyroid, electrolytes, kidney and liver function are normal.
These are: Lowish but not low enough to do anything but repeat the test. The issue is why were they drawn? Higher WBC counts indicate infection, low counts of one element ( red cell, white cell or platelets) can be a variety of things for each from lack of production to excess destruction, to crowding out by other things. Too much to detail here, repeat the test and call your doctor. ...Read more
I just had some lab work done. What would cause a low serum albumin level, high alpha 1 and 2 and high c-reactive protein and low vit d?
Likely inflammation: Generally, decreased Albumin and increased globulins are seen in inflammatory conditions, acute or chronic. The fever ; high CRP also support this. Of note, other conditions may cause this including cancer, but still, the most likely explanation is infection/inflammation. A low vitamin d level may be caused by inadequate intake, no sun exposure, absorbtion problem, kidney disease, obesity. ...Read more
After suffering various symptoms I had some blood tests which included TSH, 9am Cortisol, DHEA, Kidney function, Liver function and full blood count. All normal apart from very low DHEA what can I do?
Textbooks: This question, to answer, would require a full text book. But, there are sites and books to read if you want to know. In my office when labs are abnormal I have a 30 minute session to go over the basics for the problem. To give you any advice a doctor would need the full cholesterol and metabolic panels. Not just the diagnosis. They would need your medication list and medical history. ...Read more
Would regular two month blood donation affect bilirubin, albumin and other liver function bloodwork? wouldnt the blood loss skew the LFT numbers?
Is there a link between a high ANA and cancer ? Cbc ok metabolic ok. Thyroid ok. And lupus panel neg?
After a blood test the doctor said I have low beta cell function. Weight, glucose, cholesterol and basal insulin level are ok. Is that normal?
My blood work reveals chronic low lymphocytes and monocytes, high ch50, pos ssa and ssb. Possibly a result of anorexia?
Unlikely: Anorexia causes numerous metabolic, electrolyte and hematological abnormalities, but is not generally associated with positive anti-nuclear antibodies, such as ssa and ssb. Chronic low lymphocytes and monocytes are much more likely to bo due to malnutrition. (are you referring to anorexia nervosa, or simply anorexia - no appetite?) more information is needed for interpretation. ...Read more

Blood work done and results are- Iron tests lower side of normal. Ferritin 17 and Iron sat was 13 with range 15-55. Any input? Doctor said fine??
Take iron: 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, the results you provided suggest iron deficiency which not uncommon in women in reproductive years. Take oral iron supplement and multivitamins. 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. ...Read more
