MCH slightly elevated at 34 (MCV) normal but on high side is it any relation to low t3 (liothyronine) levels 46 ? TSH and T4 also low laying but normal range.
Neutrophil % high at 76.2% along w/ high neut. Absolute at 7.0, lymphocyte % low at 16.5% -- all other bloodwork (cbc) normal. What could this be?
Likely nothing to ..: Worry about if you are otherwise feeling well. Your total WBC count, based on the data you provide, is within the normal range. The modest left shift (ie., relative increased neutrophil %) could indicate an effort to address a mild bacterial infection. But more likely it's just normal variation. I do wonder what prompted the check to begin with? Additional details? ...Read more
F,43, have seizures? ca ev 2 wk, hit back of head on faucet, fnd only venous angioma & wbc & eos slight high and bp & blsugar higher nonfast noth else
Seizures: It is not uncommon to find no "cause" for seizures. Unlikely to be due to the venous angioma. Make sure you are seeing a neurologist to discuss treatments, and obtaining an EEG (electroencephalogram). Usually epileptic seizures can be easily controlled/ prevented with medicines. Hypoglycemia can also cause seizure occasionally- to avoid that eat small frequent meals of low glycemic index foods. ...Read more

Moms blood protein high@ 8.5g/dl (8.3 upper limit). Alb ok. Glob@ upper limit of normal. A/G ratio low@ .8 (1.1-2.2). Low iron,high ferritin. Hgb low@ 12g/dl (12.5-16). eGFR 59. Can biopsy-proven chronic gastritis explain? Push for electrophoresis?
Repeat labs: All of the abnormal labs there are borderline. None of them seem to stand out as a major problem. I think if she has a diagnosis of gastritis, and it is being treated, it would be OK to wait a few weeks and redraw her blood work to see if it is still abnormal. Good luck to both of you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Cbc showed a flag on the following. Bilirubin 0.15, alk phosphatase 141, cholesterol 282 (put on med) mpv 10.9, monocytes 0.6. Are they normal?
Normal is relative : Lab numbers are often meaningless without knowing the reasons as to way they were obtained. Comparing them to previous labs is also important. In this case these lab numbers are normal. Alk phos is on the higher end of normal and based on symptoms the doctor may repeat it in about 3 months when re-checking fasting lipids. ...Read more

Ruled out all possible reasons for ALT 170 & AST 65 for 6 months except liver biopsy.I suspect nafld.Bmi is 19 with perfect lipid profile what 2 do?
Suspect NAFLD also: I trust hepatitis b and c, hemochromatosis, antitrypsin, wilson's and autoimmunity were ruled out. Glad you don't drink. Trust it's not behcet's. Nafld almost never presents textbook-perfect. The real question might be whether you'd do well to undertake a serious program of aerobic fitness, which would be likely to get your liver back in shape. Or do it 4 its own sake without definitive diagnosis. ...Read more

Listen Charlie: Please forgive me. I'm a pathologist focused on lab medicine. Labs mean NOTHING in the absence of a history and physical exam. And labs are not simply "high" or "low". These may be the labs of a bodybuilder with hookworms, or a man gravely sick. All I know is that if your physician won't sit and explain your labs -- and these worry me greatly -- get with some else. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
