Blood Tests


Recommended Posts

What, if any abnormalities have been found in your blood tests. No matter how allegedly insignificant. No close calls. Specifically out of normal range. Mine have been: high albumin twice, low vitamin d, high hgb, high hct, low potassium reoccuring and before florinef, high mchc, high testosterone.

Issie, it was barely high once and is ok now, I also had my estradiol tested and it was ok. I actually have a friend with pcos, and we are much different. Also have had ultrasounds done.

Low IGG

Low IGE

Undectable PTH

before hysterectomy:

Undectable Testosterone

Undectable Progesterone

Now onto things that have popped up here and there........

Low Vitamin D, fixed with RX

Low Red Blood Cells

Low Calcium

Low Sodium

Low Glucose

High Calcium

High Phosphorus

High Insulin

Borderline High A1C

High Seratonin

High C-Reactive Protein

High IGF-1

High Histamine

Bodily Fluids.......

Protein in Urine. Osmolality was way off before Florinef. Diabetes Insipidus Suspected until POTS Dx and Florinef helped.

Fat Malabsorption (stoole, sorry TMI)

Spinal Tap had a Low Albumin Ratio, but nothing else

Other Things..........

HLA-B27 Positive

CU Index result very HIGH

EBV Positive for past infection

CMV Positive for past infection

Long Tests with Multi-Reads..........

ACTH Stim Test High Dose; Low base Cortisol, Low base ACTH, response was minimal and gray area.

ACTH Stim Test Low Dose; Low Base Cortisol, Low Base ACTH, barely any response, DX adrenal insufficiency, pituitary origin

Growth Hormone Suppresion; High Growth Hormone Base, followed by Suppression at 90 minutes but didn't stay down and jumped back up. No one has explained.

3 Hour GTT with Insulin; normal baselines, all subsequent Glucose readings every 30 minutes were high. Insulin every 30 minutes was double the high end of the range. No DX yet, but probably Hyperinsulinemia as I do suffer from Hypoglycemia.

If I remember more I'll add them on.

I have these exact same levels, especially the albumin levels. The only thing a doctor has told me is that I was dehydrated. Bologna.

Mcblonde, yes, it happened when I picked up the nasty habit of smoking at bars. Quit and it went away.

Well darn! I have it without smoking or asthma! :) It doesn't cause me any problems that I know of.... I always just thought it was a little weird to have too much carbon dioxide in me!

My son has little or no haptoglobin. I believe that this could be one of the causal factors of his POTS, because a haptoglobin deficiency can lead to a nitric oxide deficiency, but I'm having trouble finding a doctor to investigate this angle. I will not give up on this one, however!

He also has high albumin.
