Total col 226, HDL 56, LDL 151, LDL/HDL ratio 2.70. Is this good?

Fair: Your good cholesterol and your bad cholesterol are both high, but your good cholesterol is proportionally higher than your bad cholesterol. So I would say, that this amounts to a modest elevation in your cholesterol. ...Read more

Total col. 226, HDL 56, ldl 151, ratio ldl/HDL 2.70. Do I need a statin?

Not really: your ldls are considered bordeline. Unless you have had a heart attack or stroke, I would just try and follow a diet low in saturated fatty acids such as animal fats. Follow one that is high in unsturated such as nuts, avacados, olive oils. and don't smoke ...Read more

"diaper rash": A number of conditions cause so called "diaper rash." i wonder about the duration of treatment rendered since 6 different creams, independently or in combination, have been used in 2 weeks period. If no response to Nystatin was observed in a week, the child is unlikely to have yeast infection unless immunocompromised. Seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, and zinc deficiency are other possibilities. ...Read more

Total protein 7.9 albumin 3.7 globulin 4.2. And albumin/globulin ratio is 0.9.  Is this concerning?

Generically not prob: Overall this is not a problem. Typically you want your Albumin a little higher so it would be helpful to know if you are dieting or have a good amount of protein in your meals. Ratio should be about 1. ...Read more

Neg. 4 HIV. H/S ratio low 0.84. CD4 ratio was low at 30.7. CD8 ratio high at 36.5. Both adsolute were normal CD4 583 CD8 694. Should I be concerned?

HIV negative: The HIV test is the only one that matters. If you were tested long enough after the last possible exposure (4-8 weeks, depending on the particular test or combination of tests), you don't have it. It was pointless to have the other tests. Nobody without a positive HIV test should be tested for CD4 etc. Your results are fine and don't indicate any health problem. Stop testing. ...Read more

Kappa/lambda FLC ratio high (2.75) w/ normal K(10.21mg/dl) & low L(3.68mg/dl). Hem-onc unsure if ratio implies K monoclonality since serum/urine IFE ok & neither chain is elevated. Could monoclonal K be suppressing L? IgA a bit high IgG &IgM a bitlow

Kappa/lambda FLC ratio high (2.75) w/ normal K(10.21mg/dl) & low L(3.68mg/dl). Hem-onc unsure if ratio implies K monoclonality since serum/urine IFE ok & neither chain is elevated. Could monoclonal K be suppressing L? IgA a bit high IgG &IgM a bitlow

Useless test: K/L ratio is not a useful test. About one third of patients without monoclonal immunoglboulin have an abnormal ratio, usually with kappa excess. If you must, the next step would be a bone marrow examination. You may consult this article that I wrote: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27473738 At your age you are unlikely to have myeloma. ...Read more

Sure: This s very serious. I wonder whether you have familial hypercholesterolemia. It kills people who use it, often at your age or a little later. Flax seed is unlikely to help more than a little bit. Best wishes. ...Read more

Are the any creams that have Triamcinolone Acetonide BP 1 mg Econazole Nitrate BP 10 mg Gentamicin Sulphate BP 1 mg Sold in America?

Are the any creams that have Triamcinolone Acetonide BP 1 mg
Econazole Nitrate BP 10 mg
Gentamicin Sulphate BP 1 mg
Sold in America?

Don't think so: Haven't heard of that combination cream. However, individual creams can be prescribed if needed, and a patient can use a little bit from each tube of cream, to treat a particular rash if her doctor feels that such medications are the proper treatment of that rash. Usually, there is more than one type of cream able to treat a rash, which means that alternatives should also be available in the US. ...Read more

Globulin level: 4.5, Albumin level: 3.9, Total Protein: 8.4, Albumin/Globulin Ratio: 0.9, AST: 68, ALT: 105. What do these levels mean?

Globulin level: 4.5, Albumin level: 3.9, Total Protein: 8.4, Albumin/Globulin Ratio: 0.9, AST: 68, ALT: 105. What do these levels mean?

Need med history: You need to tell us why was this test done. Did you have some complaints? Once we know your symtoms, if any, it is easier to interpret your lab results. Your liver enzymes are slightly high and so is the globulin level which can occur due to liver problems like Hepatitis. Your doctor needs to recheck these labs in another one or two months and find the cause?hepatitis? ...Read more

My Glucose, Serum is 5 mg/dL BUN/ Creatinine Ratio is 22 CO2 is 9 mmol/L AST 54 IU/L ALT 54 IU/L What does all this indicate?

Mistake?: Normal BG - 60-100 range. BG of 5 mg/dl produces profound neurologic disturbance. Please recheck that value. BUN could indicate mild dehydration. CO2 -really bicarbonate- is low indicating excess acid in blood stream. AST and ALT both mildly / nonspecifically elevated. Line by line interpretation of labs -not very helpful. Need to know context in which they were drawn in order to understand. ...Read more
