What Is A Normal Inr Lab Value
A cmp blood test says albumin/globulin ratio is 2.6 (says normal range is 1-2.1). What is this ratio, and what do results mean? Should i be concerned?
I wouldn't worry: High albumin doesn't occur except in dehydration which also raises globulin, so your total globulin is a bit low overall. Chances are you're one of the folks who makes less in the way of antibodies than other folks, at least right now. This level's no danger to you. These investigations are seldom productive and if you feel well, I'd simply be thankful for good health and keep an eye on it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No such thing: We don't publish a reference range as people would worry. The more muscle mass you have, the more creatinine you put out daily. The level in turn is also a function of how much water you drink -- whether the urine is concentrated or dilute. And there's no illness for which increased or decreased production is a marker. If you do find a published range, ignore it. ...Read more
Labs results normal? Had a comp metabolic panel w/egfr egfr non-afr american 89 ml/min/1.73m2. What is this lab test? And is this result normal?
EGFR: An egfr is an "estimated glomerular filtration rate". It is not exact. To get the exact figure go to a nephrologist (n) to have a 24 hour urine collection for creatinine clearance. That will give you an actual gfr. As a young woman, your results, estimated, a bit abnormal. If you are an african-american, your egfr is normal, if not, see a n. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does elevated IgM means in serum electrophoresis, everything else is at normal values? Patient expirienced frequently angioedemas recently? Thank
Depends: The IgM elevation would depend on how high & whether it is monoclonal or polyclonal. If the value is just moderately elevated, it may signal the presence of a current infection which can potentially be the cause for the angioedema. On the other hand, it is more likely that it has nothing to do with your angioedema at all. Consult an allergist if this remains an issue. ...Read more

Repeat the test: Trace sugar in the urine is not worrisome by itself. It may represent the onset of diabetes. You should have it repeated along with glucose measurements performed while fasting to rule out diabetes. As with any subtle abnormal lab test, it should always be repeated to make sure it is not a false positive. ...Read more
