vemee Posted April 28, 2006 Report Share Posted April 28, 2006 I got my blood catecholamine test results from Vanderbilt other day and I was surprised at the findings. I went in thinking my levels would be low since I felt so bad and suffer from biochemical depression but this is what they found out.supine dhpg 1418 upright 2966supine ne 456 upright 2139supine dopa 1978 upright 2435supine epi 27 upright 47supine dopac 2400 upright 3086supine da 8 upright da 35supine renin .5 upright renin 2supine aldo less than 2.5 upright also 8.8I have not deciphered this yet except that my norepinepherine is super high and if I am reading it right only 10 percent of pots patients have ne above 2000. Perhaps those of us in the top ten percent should have a special smilie designed for us. Serioulsy I am not sure of the meaning. I am going to a neurologist at the University of Virginia so I am hoping he will shed some light. They also found I had small fiber neuopathy, that is the main reason I am going to UVA.
