I tested positive for a JAK2 mutation on a blood test and when my marrow was tested the JAK2 mutation was not found. How can this be?

I tested positive for a JAK2 mutation on a blood test and when my marrow was tested the JAK2 mutation was not found.  How can this be?

Borderline result?: You are correct to wonder how a genetic test that is positive in blood can be negative in marrow, because a marrow aspirate is around 50% blood. If a blood test was borderline to begin with (due to a low percentage of positive cells), or if it was a false positive, then it may turn up negative in the marrow. ...Read more

Recent blood test showed my bun at 18 and my creative at 1.02 both on high end of range, should I be worried ?

No: If you are a muscular male, these results would be right in the normal range. As it is the results are within normal limits. However, all lab 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.

Recently got a blood test and had a bun level of 6.0 mg/dl and b/c ratio is 6.6. They said they were low. Should i be concerned?

Recently got a blood test and had a bun level of 6.0 mg/dl and b/c ratio is 6.6. They said they were low. Should i be concerned?

BUN of 5: Your BUN of 6 mg/dl is low. It is important to know that its level varies from lab to lab. And it is related to your protein intake and your state of hydration. You did not give your creatinine (c) level. Your c is dependent on your sex, age, weight and age. If the physician (p) who ordered the test is not worried, as he did not call you, do not worry about it. If you need reassurance, call the p. ...Read more

Need more info: Creatinine level in blood depends on the kidney function, but also on the amount of protein intake and muscle mass and activity that you have. You need a glomerular filtration test for a better evaluation of your kidney function. ...Read more

I had blood test done at er everything came back normal but what is b/cr test it was 6.2 and A/G was 1.0 should I be worried and my bun is 5 mg ?

Both in normal range: Bun and creatinine are common blood tests used to measure kidney function. The ratio is typically around 10 for normal. The ratio can go above 20 in various conditions such as dehydration or intrinsic kidney problems. The albumin/globulin ratio is also in the normal range. Which is a non specific test to determine the different types of proteins in your blood including antibodies. ...Read more

Dehydration?: Sounds like dehydration (if no kidney disease) as we grow younger, we cannot rely on our thirst, and have to drink by the clock... Our osmotic receptors get old before we do. ...Read more

Regarding blood test-what is co2 is high, creatine is high, egfr is low, bun/creat ratio high?

Lab results: The lab results you mention, low creatinine high and egfr is low are consistent with a person with chronic kidney disease. The co2 in chronic kidney disease is not high and can be low. The high bun-creatinine ratio is suggestive of a dehydrated state. Please provide the actual numbers of the lab values you stated for a better answer. ...Read more

Hard to say: Without knowing your past medical history and past testing. But from what you mention your testing suggest some element of kidney dysfunction. It's not clear if it's chronic or acute. But you should reach out to your doctor if you have questions too. He/she will know you vest to be able to give you the most accurate description of what's going on. ...Read more

Maybe infection,,,: From your information, it looks like you've got infection. Your white count is high and that is a very telling sign of infection which could be a complication of your endometriosis. You'd need an aids test and would have other general signs like long standing fever and not necessarily abdominal pain and wouldn't have such a high white count for aids. Best of luck. ...Read more

What is the meaning of the following blood test results creatinine from 1.67 down to 0.83. Ast(sgot) 50, bun creat ratio 22.00, est GFR less than 60?

What is the meaning of the following blood test results   creatinine from 1.67 down to 0.83. Ast(sgot) 50, bun creat ratio 22.00, est GFR less than 60?

Kidney and Liver T: Egfr (normal >60), creatinine, bun/cr ratio are all lab values to suggest how the kidney function is, ast is an enzyme secreted by the liver, if its elevated there is something wrong with the liver (it varies from mild to severe). Check with your doctor or mentor about the normal values and the abnormal ones. ...Read more

Age 65 w/fem. Serum Creatinine 1.02. Bun 8. Ratio 8. Egfr down from 70's to 58. Took Zantac (ranitidine) 150 32 hrs. prior to blood test. No health concerns. CKD?

I don't think so: With a BUN of 8, anybody worried about their kidneys should be very happy. The lack of real science behind the "EGFR" promotion is showcased by the adjustment for race "because black people are more muscular." Many of us in pathology think this is an attempt by Big Pharma to make healthy people think they are sick. I'd be glad for good health. Creatine's fine for your age. Best wishes. ...Read more

High creatinine: You need to see a nephrologist (n) and have a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein done. This will give you an acutal measure of your kidney function. If you have proteinuria (p), you will need to be started on either an ace-i or an arb to reduce your BP and p. You should also have a renal ultrasound done. You may need another agent to control your bp. See a n for more answers. ...Read more
