Tsh Results And What They Mean
Humoral immune-: deficiency 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, low levels of IgG and IgA indicate deficiency of antibodies and susceptibility to infections and auto-immune disorders. ...Read more
Depends: A physician will need to know more about your immune history (particularly with regard to infection severity and frequency, family history, vaccination history, context of laboratory testing when IgG/A found to be low and whether there is GI/liver/kidney/skin disease. You could begin by requesting a virtual consult. Good health! ...Read more
Negative: AFP is the screening test for neural tube defects and down's syndrome .Normal test means your risk of having a baby with down's is very low compared to what the riskis at your age. ...Read more
HYPOTHRYOID: Your thyroid gland is underactive it is not producing enough thyroxine. The pituitary gland is working overtime to try to get the thyroid gland to produce enough thyroxine which regulates the bodies metabolic rate. You need supplementation of what your gland produces. You also need to be checked for autoimmune thyroiditis, see your doctor. ...Read more
I had blood tests recently and the results say 'liver chemistry normal'. What does this mean? What have they tested?
What does it mean when you have a low MCH range in your blood results. All other blood results are in normal range.
How low?: 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, it would have been useful to have the actual values of your results. If MCH is the only abnormal finding, I would not worry at all, especially if your hemoglobin level is normal. ...Read more
What is ALT & AST and what does it do? Test results from my blood work came back and these two results were doubled the norm and i would like to know what that means.
ALT : Alt (alanine aminotransferase) and ast (aspartate aminotransferase) are enzymes found predominantly in liver cells that leak out when there is liver cell damage. Alt is pretty specific to the liver even though small amounts of alt can be found in heart, kidney, and skeletal muscle. Ast can be elevated after a myocardial infarction (heart attack), and during pancreatitis, hemolytic anemia, severe burns, acute renal disease, musculoskeletal diseases, and trauma - it is pretty non-specific. Talk to your doctor about why your tests may be mildly abnormal (doubled from the norm is pretty mild). Various medications, infections, or other illnesses can cause elevated liver enzymes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My lab test came back and they are making me nervous. my anion gap is7. alkaline phos is 123.. AST is140. What do these results mean?
Dr says my glucose levels high and liver levels are slightly high what does this all mean and what will be done next?
Glucose : It could mean you have pre-diabetes or diabetes. There are many reasons why liver enzymes will be high but in someone with glucose elevation, fatty liver is also a possibility. I would work closely with your doctor to get the risk factors under control. Discuss all this with the doctor who ordered the tests for you. Good luck. ...Read more
Is FT4 correct?: Your TSH appears normal. Did you have a typp with the ft4, as a value of 15 is an order of magnitude too high. 1.5 would be normal. Another possibility is that the 15 is a T4 not a ft4. Either way, it's hard to tell but probably normal. Check w/your doctor. ...Read more
My lymphs are 19.4, my absolute lymphs are 6.7, and my neutrophils are 6.7. What does this mean? I also may have ms? What do these labs mean?
Not sure- need units: These results are limited. What are the units? Are these blood counts, fractions of white blood cells (i.e. percents) or counts from CSF? If they are blood counts, it appears the white blood cell count is high. A virus can cause lymphocyte counts to be elevated, as well as many other conditions. Blood tests do not diagnose MS. These results as they are also do not indicate MS. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Please explain what it means when you have a blood test and the results say there are ovalocytes and anisocytosis present , and abnormal?
Need more info: 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, you did not give the actual value. Total serum protein consists of a number of separate proteins and next thing should be to determine which protein is increased. ...Read more
Help u/standing results, pls. TSH, FT4, FT3 all bottom end of normal range. TgAb and TPOAb are neg. Have both hypO/ER syms. What could this mean?
Euthyroid: Your thyroid function is normal and your symptoms are not due to thyroid disease. Remember, TSH is suppressed by thyroid hormone so a low level means overactivity. If all measures are low normal, you're normal. You could have pituitary insufficiency, but that wouldn't give you sx of thyroid excess-just the opposite. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi. Need your help please to interpret the ast (36.1) and alt (128) result. What is the ratio and what does it mean? My overall CBC test is normal.
Likely benign.: The numbers by themselves don't tell us much. Since they are so only slightly elevated I would recommend repeating them in about four weeks. The ratio is only relevant when the numbers are much higher than what you are reporting. Also depends on what symptoms you have. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
