Dilantin and albumin

Common Questions and Answers about Dilantin and albumin


Avatar_n_tn So, for example if a stANDard blood test showed Phenytoin 64.6umol/L <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>AND</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ALBUMIN</span> was 30g/L, can you predict accurately whether the unbound or free LEVELS are in the therapeutic range? Would other factors like creatinine be considered?
Avatar_n_tn My mother, 67, has CHF, Renal Insufficiency, is on enteral feeding at 65cc/constant AND has been allowed 100cc of H2O every 6 hours. She also takes 100mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>DILANTIN</span> 3x daily <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>AND</span> 20mg of Lasix daily. Being that we have to stop feeding 1 hour prior to AND after giving DILANTIN, she loses a total of 6 hours of feeding. Is it okay to double the rate of the enteral feed to 130cc for 2 hours after resuming feed each time DILANTIN is given to make up for the lost time?
Avatar_n_tn She is on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>DILANTIN</span> for seizures <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>AND</span> is not doing well. Very tired all the time. Her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>DILANTIN</span> level came back at 21 so the doctor just lowered her dose. I'm just wondering if she should be taking the Free T3 test instead. My parents doctor is an older gentlemen AND he never checked their thyroid LEVELS until I asked him too. Thank you for any response.
335728_tn?1331418012 Patient has now had cerebrospinal fluid exam. Both the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ALBUMIN</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>AND</span> absolute LEVELS of IgG were markedly increased. In addition she had an increased IgG index AND daily rate of IgG synthesis at 45mg/day. These features are highly characteristic of MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS AND seem to support the MRI observations. DIAGNOSES: 1. Multiple Sclerosis, in remission 2. Single GrAND Mal Convulsion 3. Olefactory sensations.
Avatar_f_tn 2kpa 233CAP (slightly above the 220 threshold) Ultrasound , All perfectly normal 3 sets of bloods months apart ALT 23 then 20 finally 20 AST 20 only the last set had this GGT 23 then 19 finally 16 ALP 47 then 55 finally 50 Bili 1.9 then 1.3 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>AND</span> finally 1.3 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ALBUMIN</span> 50 then 49 AND finally 48 I am aiming to get rid of the slight fat, exercise, no alcohol AND no sugars of fats. Do I have anything to worry about with the information?
Avatar_n_tn The child developed seizures almost immediately after birth, requiring TX with Phenbarb, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>DILANTIN</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>AND</span> Activan. LP done which was bloody. Initial CT showed subarachnoid blood. EEG showed burst suppression pattern. EEGs on 5/10, 5/11, 5/15, 5/26 AND 6/5 all showing persistence of burst suppression. MRI on 5/18 showed scattered areas of subarachnoid blood, increased signal intensity AND some hemorrhage within the Basal Ganglia.
Avatar_m_tn Sorry but the information you provided does not give us enough information to tell why your ALT is high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>AND</span> AST slightly elevated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>AND</span> GGT is high. It only tells us what isn't causing the higher than normal LEVELS. You don't have hepatitis A, B or C according to your tests. So that is not the cause of the elevated blood LEVELS. Hepatitis A IgG are antibodies.
648382_tn?1223811096 5 mg/dl, SGOT(AST)-16 iu/l, Serum total protein-7.4 g/dl, Serum <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ALBUMIN</span>-4.7 g/dl, Serum Globulin-2.7, SGPT(ALT)-26 iu/l, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>AND</span> GGTP(IFCC)-109 iu/l. GGTP of Apr08 is above reference range of 10-50: but has been dismissed away by 9 of 10 different specialists I consulted whereas my neurologist thinks it to be significant; putting me on 450 mg Udiliv (ursodesoxycholic acid), 250 mg Diamox (Acetazolamide), AND 250 mg Becosules (VitaminB complex) from Sep11 (approx 1 month now).
Avatar_m_tn He said to take the vit D for 3 months <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>AND</span> then come back to retest to see what my Vit D, b12, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>AND</span> folate LEVELS were, He also said the thyroid can be affected by stress AND as my body was low in vit D it would be good to retest thyroid again in 3 months after the Vit D kicks in.
Avatar_n_tn My hair <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>AND</span> skin is healthy also. I'm really scared <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>AND</span> don't know who to turn too. My doctor said I have to take the medicine or I'll be sick. She won't listen to me AND won't think of Armour. I was to get my adrenal glANDs checked AND my progesterone checked but she isn't calling. If feel so lost. I know two people on synthroid AND they can't even walk 1 mile, can't lose weight AND have hair loss....
551343_tn?1350880995 I'm 42yrs old, mother of adult son, but have had undiagnosed symptoms off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>AND</span> on for years. From Joint pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>AND</span> swelling to lymph node swelling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>AND</span> tenderness to now currently weakness (heavy feeling) AND constant tiredness. I was diagnosed about a year AND a half ago with a dead gallbladder which was removed...AND it was dead. But now my PCP is testing for Autoimune AND Viral/baterial infections: Mono, Lyme, Celiac AND Lupus. I won't get the test results for another 24hrs or so.
