Sons urinalysis was negative. Does that mean there isnt any possibilty of liver/kidney/thyroid problems?

No: A urinalysis does not test for thyroid or liver disease. It also does not test for kidney function completely.

Other tests need to be done to look for problems in the areas you asked about. ...Read more

Done an sgpt test and it says on the result that mine is 66 (ref: 9.00-52 u/l(h). Do i need to worry? I am drinking ptu (propylthiouracil) for my thyroidism continuously

PTU (propylthiouracil) and liver : Drugs like ptu (propylthiouracil) and Methimazole can cause liver toxicity but hyperthyroidism can also cause elevation int the liver enzyme test you had done. If your still early in your treatment and your thyroid hormone levels (free t4) is still high it could be that. Hope this helps. ...Read more

1.1 CM bilat persistent neck lymph node in healthy child w/ CMV igg186 ua; IgM neg. Us=reactive, cbc/hsr normal. 4weeks, no increasing. Need follow up?

Always good : To have an enlarged lymph node followed up. Depends on other circumstances, signs and symptoms associated with it, your physician will want to see you sooner or monitor you once a year or have you come in sooner if condition has changed.Sounds more like reactive lymphadenopathy due to past infections- viral , strep throat, skin infections etc it may take time to resolve. ...Read more
