Doctor insights on:
Mmol To Mg Dl Conversion
Yes: A Hba1c above 6.5% is consistent with diabetes. Although your fasting glucose is normal, you likely have high sugars later in the day after eating. You should obtain a glucose monitor and start checking your sugar at different times of the day to see when it is running high.See 1 more doctor answer
Not likely: Lactic acidosis is not so much a cause of pain, but more a marker of poor perfusion, starvation, or other metabolic derangement. If we are still talking about the same patient as in the previous questions, low blood pressures and increased metabolic stress from critical illness can most definitely cause an increase in lactate levels.
No: If the range is in reference to Urobilinogen this is a normal value.
What is your: Question. There is no problem with low shbg. Your testosterone level can vary with lab, time of day, other factors. Do you have a morning free testosterone level? Discuss w/your doctor.
Anemia...: ...Is a low red blood cell count/low hemoglobin level. It can be caused by either decreased production of red blood cells, increase loss of them, or both. Best to talk with the doctor who ordered the testing to discuss diagnosis and treatment. Good luck!
Hi, I have a qestion regarding the ogtt (75 g): if the 1 h result is above 11 mmol/l (200 mg/dl) could that mean diabetes? Or only the 2 h one? Thx:)
The 2 hour one.: This test is designed to see how the body reacts to a sugar challenge after 2 hours. It is also important to get your glucose level before the test, as anything >125 mg/dl is diagnostic of diabetes anyway. As for the ogtt, if your 2 hour is <=140 mg/dl, it's normal, if >140 but <200, it's impaired glucose tolerance, and if > 200, it confirms diabetes. I hope this helps.
Quantity: This is a mass per unit volume. The meaning in terms of "significance" from a medical, health, legal, or other standpoint is unique to the substance/material being evaluated. We would need more information to give you a clearer answer on that.See 1 more doctor answer
Probably normal: Total bilirubin is broken down into direct and indirect bilirubin. Different labs report different values that fall in the normal range for total bilirubin, which usually is 1.2 or less. Your indirect bilirubin is probably in the normal range or slightly above normal. Other liver tests can be helpful. I wouldn't worry, but talk to your liver doctor or pcp if concerned.
See your PCP: Serum creatinine is affected by several factors other than the filtering function of your kidneys. These include muscle mass (e.g. bodybuilders) and degree of hydration. If your Scr is repeatedly mildly elevated, see your PCP and have urinalysis done. Any presence of protein, red or white blood cells may indicate renal disease.See 1 more doctor answer
