Normal Levels Of A1c
Several causes: The correlation between a1c and FBS is not perfect. A1c is like a glu average. If you have frequent hypoglycemia, then that may be "balancing" the high glu.

An alternate to the a1c is a measure of fructosamine. ...Read more

Those are close: to the normal range and not necessarily a problem. cannot say in your particular case, but generally, tests that are within 5% of the normal range are not indicative of much. Furthermore alcohol certainly causes damage to the pancreas and some drinking can cause some (small) changes in lab tests at levels below that causing serious toxicity. ...Read more

Different thing: You could have more than one conditons like low in iron and low in vitamin B12 for instance- that would make normal MCV and high rdw. Or you could be just in the very beginning or mild case of low iron- that would present the same in cbc. Go to see your md and get checked. ...Read more
Diabetic measure.: The HgbA1C is a measure reflective of your degree of diabetic control in the long term. It essentially represents a three month average of your fingersticks, as if you took a fingerstick every minute, night and day, eating and fasting, for three months straight and then averaged them all. Technically, it's the percentage of red blood cells that have glucose attached to them. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
1.44 billirubin which is apparently slightly high. Enzymes and rest of liver functions all normal. AFP norma. CBC normal. What to think?
Need to examine: 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, if bilirubin is only abnormal result, you may watch and wait. If you have no symptoms. Do not use Tylenol (acetaminophen) and related meds, no alcohol and you may repeat it in a year or so. 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.

Most of the time the ordering physician considers the reason they ordered the test, and decides if the variation has any significance in relation to that reason. If so, then they sometimes re-order at a future date to see if it indicates a certain directional trend. ...Read more

Looks okay: If you feel okay, there is no such thing as "low blood pressure"; it need be only high enough to keep your body perfused. Whether these thyroid labs are okay depends on the units. Reference ranges are arbitrarily set so that several percent of healthies fall outside. Glad you're staying proactive. BEst wishes. ...Read more
What the causes of elevated creatinine with normal urea?and causes of increase urea with normal creatinine?
Homework?: This is more than we can handle in 400 words, you know reference ranges are set so several % of healthies fall outside, that all well-muscled men have "high creatinine" and that labs mean nothing apart from people. This said, (1) healthy bodybuilder, people on Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) or Tagamet, others; (2) dehydration, after big steak dinner. Try to understand the basic biology instead of just lists. ...Read more
