What Vitamin Controls Neutrophils
What causes low serum phosphate other than parathyroidism? PTH & calcium are constantly normal. Normal D vitamin because of high dose supplements.
Low phos: Phos metabolism is intake /shift/ losses. I am assuming you have good intake. So the other two are the reason, either shift inside the cells or losses from the kidney. How low is the phos? Your medication list shows no meds that can cause losses. A lab doesn't need to be treated, so rpt lab and then get a urine fractional excretion if still low. Talk to your MD. ...Read more

Monocytes 15%; bun/creatinine ratio 24; esterase (abnormal); microalbumin 77.9; vitamin d 24.8. What does this mean with remaining results all normal?
Nothing alone: Percentages of white cells are totally uninformative in the absence of absolute counts. Your bun/creatinine ratio may be nothing more than your having just eaten a steak dinner.

Recent CBC: RBC 4.48, Hgb 11.8, Hct 38.1, MCV 85.0, MCH 26.3, MCHC 31.0, RDW 15.8, Plt 503. How "abnormal" is my Plt in relative terms? What is likely the cause of high Plt (poss iron deficiency?)?
Check for low iron: Your platelet count by itself is not worrisome, but elevated platelets with an elevated RDW (the spread of Red Cell sizes) is often an indicator of iron deficiency. Iron deficiency is common in menstruating women, especially vegetarians, and can cause fatigue before it is severe enough to cause anemia. Ask your doctor to check your iron saturation level, and consider a daily vitamin "for women." ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My age is 72 .The level of vitamin d has risen to376. Tell me the reason and the way to control it?
Lab Error: The commonest reason for a lab result to be that high is lab error in the reporting of the results. Typical vitamin d elvel is 24-100. Lower than 24 is deficency and above 100 would be toxicity. I am not sure a level much above 100 is possible without developing some type of toxicity. I would stop any supplement that I am on, and repeat a level. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
