futurehope Posted February 21, 2006 Report Share Posted February 21, 2006 The one test I had of catecholamines was at NIH for the "intake" exam.My results are below:The first number is NE (norepinephrine)The second number is EPI (epinephrine)xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxNExxxxxxxxxxxxEPISupine venousxxxxxxx334xxxxxxxxxxx195 min upright xxxxxxxx699 xxxxxxxxxx48Lower limit of normalxx 80xxxxxxxxxxxx 4Upper limit of normalxx498xxxxxxxxxxxx83The Interpretation:Normal plasma NE during supine rest and normal increment in plasma NE after 5 minutes upright.I'm confused. It's looks like I'm above the upper limit on the NE after 5 minutes upright? Does anyone out there know? I will not be seeing my POTS doc for 4 months and I don't feel like waiting for an answer.
