What's the relation of the results of 24-hour urine calcium test to slightly below normal IONIZED CALCIUM and slightly elevated INTACT PTH?
Here are some ...: Why have you been tested for PTH, 24-hr urine ... ? Of course, I assumed concerning recurrent urinary stone, right? How to interpret the report? All the reports have to be correlated & corresponded with clinical scenario, and slight variation (even off the chart) may carry no clinical significance. Before implementing strict stone prevention, take the general measures to keep daily U-output >2.5 L ...Read more

Jaundice occurs...: ...by defintion, when your liver doesn't metabolize bilirubin the way it's supposed to. Depending on the clinical situation, jaundice and cholestasis may coexist or each may exist without the other. Serum bilirubin levels are however normal in patients with yellow skin caused by carotenemia or quinacrine. Ref: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK413/ ...Read more
Not known.: No one knows exactly why high calcium levels occur in granuloma-forming disorders such as sarcoidosis. Contributing factors may include dehydration, increased uptake of oral calcium and/or decreased calcium excretion, especially if the kidneys are not 100% functional. ACE activity is also increased, but again no one knows exactly why. ACE is thought to be produced by cells in the granulomas. ...Read more

POT and Minerals: A twenties female taking Aldactone (spironolactone) and who has dizziness needs blood mineral and thyroid tests. If these are normal a mild case of postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (pots) becomes of concern. I have seen pots problem in women with joint hypermobility syndrome (jhs), and generalized musculoskeletal deconditioning seems etiologic. See an osteopath. ...Read more
Yes, and no.: Sodium and potassium are both positive elements that when combined with negative chloride molecules make salts that are both important parts of serum, and potassium in particular an important element in red blood cells (nb: sea water is very similar in composition to our blood). Abnormalities of potassium (hypo or hyperkalemia) or sodium (hypo/hypernatremia) are very distinct entities. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can serum potassium levels be normal while red blood cell potassium levels are low? When is the red cell potassium test used?
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

Other causes are chronic kidney disease, diabetic ketoacidosis, or acidosis of any type, use of ace-inhibitors, or angiotensin blockers and the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents. ...Read more
Can high bun/creatinine ratio (53, 2.0) in absence of GI bleeding mean dehydration if sodium and chloride is slightly lower than normal range and potassium is slightly elevated? Patient has diabetes, anemia, chf and on fluid restriction.
My daughter has hydronephrosis. High platelet levels, high creatinine and bun levels, white blood cells in her urine. No reflux.Possible kidney disease?
Azotemia: Your daughter needs to be evaluated by both pediatric urologist & pediatric nephrologist.
