What Happens When You Have High Zinc Levels In Blood
Mustache, body, and scalp hair/thinning following a period of high zinc intake (115+mg a day), and blood tests reveal low vit. D, copper levels. Why?
High zinc in blood? What can I do? What ca n cause it? How do I lower it? Please help, I lost a job over this.
Let me explian: Two main reasons to have high zinc in the body. 1-taking zinc supplement more than you need 2-work around area with fumes or zinc containers. The body does not store the zinc normally. You have to find the reason then treat it. Good luck.
Is it possible to get a false negative on a zinc toxicity test? I had zinc, copper and lead testing done. My zinc results in blood and urine were at the high end of normal. My lead was negative but my copper results came back as low. I have all of the
Any: Any test has a risk of being a false negative or even false positve for that matter. Heavy metal toxicity/poisoning is a very difficult issue, and has been a challenge for a lot of doctors. I recommend you consult a medical toxicologist. These doctors specialize in poison and metal toxicity. If you have already done so, I suggest a second opinion by another doctor in the field. Good luck.
Will most pcp test any blood values you request? Or would the patient have to show symptoms? For example could I get B12 and zinc levels checked?
I have suffer from lower zinc deficiency. My blood has an orange colour. I would like to know which diseases cause this.
Zinc deficiency: ..in itself does not cause orange-colored urine. Deficiency is usually diagnosed by serum or plasma blood tests or hair analysis. Conditions which are associated with orange urine color include liver or bile duct problems or significant dehydration which can concentrate your urine and make it much deeper in color. I would rehydrate generously and see what happens. Good wishes:)
What happens if our bodies have excess or high blood sodium levels, what happens to the kidney to regulate sodium levels?
Its water problem: Alteration in sodium levels in the blood is related to water loss or gain, not related to sodium intake. Kidneys and thirst mechanism regulate water metabolism, hence sodium levels. If you increase sodium in the blood by increased sweating, kidneys retain more water to normalize sodium levels. If you have less sodium in the blood due to increased retention of ater, kdienys excrete more water.
High intake: Since vitamins, by definition, are substances that we cannot make ourselves, a high level can only come from high intake. Vitamin B12 is not very toxic, but in high amounts can cause diarrhea, edema and increase risk of clots. If you are taking a vitamin B12 supplement, or injections you may want to cut back (discuss with your doctor if you are taking under a doctor's supervision).
Many things: There are over 40 reasons - ask your doctor why it was drawn and what the next step in the differential is.
Ambient air is about: 21% o2, and healthy lungs produce a po2 of 80-100%. Babies in nicu's treated with 100% due to respiratory immaturity could get pulmonarty and retro lentar fibrosis. One does not do well with higher levels of o2. Like goldylocks, not too little, not too much: just right.
More information: To answer your question more information is needed like exactly what the issue is you are asking the cause of.
Depends: This depends on the cause, level, & type of elevated bilirubin (conjugated vs unconjugated). There are many causes of high bilirubin levels, some of which are relatively benign, and some that may be serious. In some cases, high bilirubin may cause yellowing of the skin/eyes or increased risk for gallstones. In newborns, a significantly high bilirubin is dangerous due to the risk of brain damage.
Not the key: Don't treat a lab value. You need to find out why your bilirubin is up. If it's indirect and everything else is normal, you have Gilbert's which is a non-disease or hemolysis for which your physician should seek the cause. If liver enzymes are also up, or direct is too high, a workup is in order. Food choice is almost never the key to treating disease despite all the internet junk. Best wishes.
It requires consulta: A consultation with a hematologist may be useful if you have high hemoglobin. There is a rare medical condition called polycythemia vera but it also has some changes in white cell counts. It requires a specialist to confirm the diagnosis as hemoglobin can be high due to several different reasons. These can be sorted out by visiting a hematologist.
High cortisol: Walk in nature, meditate, take phosphatidyl serine, and/ or use adaptagenic herbs like ashwaganda to lower your cortisol levels.
