Avatar n tn Hi, How are you? It is good that the CT scan was normal. Basing on your complete blood count, the significant result is the increased wbc or white blood cell. This may indicate infection. Although it is important that your symptoms should be correlated as well to the lab results. Was there a urinalysis done? With pain in your kidney area, nausea and vomiting, one differential is a urinary tract infection. It is best that you talk to your attending. Direct clinical examination is essential.
Avatar n tn The doctor also explained that a normal liver count is 0.9 and my count is 13. I have searched for info, but have only found sites regarding infection, not "exposure". I also have found no info on this type of liver count, only numbers in the 100's. I am a recovering addict, so contracting it is no mystery, but I am slightly confused on the rest. Can anyone explain this to me? Thanks for reading....
1475202 tn?1536274577 Hi Randy, Overall, your ultrasound is very much in line with cirrhosis: "heterogenous echotexture" is consistent with cirrhotic tissue, no surprises there.' "without masses" is excellent: means no tumors or hcc, which is a risk for cirrhotics. "patent ... veins... no ascites" is all good news, means there's no blood obstruction and no fluid build up. "coleilthiasis" just means you have gallstones...
Avatar n tn The results were all normal except for a slightly higher than normal red blood cell count; all other results including liver enzymes was normal. The doctor explained that the elevation of red blood cells could be from a B12 deficiency or drinking too much alcohol. Since I described myself as a social drinker she dismissed this. Note: I do drink 1 glass of wine daily and 2-3 glasses on weekends.
Avatar n tn You need to see another doctor about this stuff. A GP or an Endo. Adrenal Fatigue may be part of the problem, and there may be other reasons for the sleep problems.

4896357 tn?1360674504 When they tell you the number is under 2, I am thinking they are referring to the complete white blood count. Carl, it is not unusual for the WBC to be under 2 on tx. In the two times I have treated, my WBC has rarely been over 2 for the entire treatment. A lot of doctors get all bent out of shape about this, but it is the absolute neutriphil count (ANC) that has more meaning, and even then, that can go as low as .5 like dee said before it becomes an issue.

Avatar n tn I also am having blood in my spit. I've been to an ENT, a gastroentorologist, and my primary care. I've been scoped every which way. No sinus bleeding, no stomach or ulcer bleeding, clean chest xray and semi clean CT scan. The CT scan came back with enlarged nasal walls, which are symptomatic of a person with constant allergies and sinus problems, which is me. The ENT put me on a nasal spray as well, to hopefully reduce that and I'm going for another CT scan in 6 weeks.

Avatar n tn THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO DO NOW IS GET THOSE BLOOD TESTS ASAP. TODAY IF POSSIBLE. YOU SHOULD HAVE A LIVER PANAL,CBC, VIRAL COUNT, AND GYNOTYPE... I COULD BE FORGETING SOME. YOU WILL WANT TO KNOW WHAT GYNOTYPE YOU ARE BEFORE IT DISAPEARS AND FOR SOME THAT HAPPENS QUICKLY. AND YOU WILL NEED YOUR VIRAL LOAD!!! ASAP!!! SO THAT YOU WILL HAVE SOMETHING TO COMPARE YOUR 12 WEEK PCR RNA TO.
Avatar n tn I am wondering now after years of unexplained symtoms, what the accuracy of blood tests are for liver and kidney function. (I also had an ultrasound that was normal). I've had varying symptoms over the years, many of which could be related to my liver or kidneys but blood tests always were normal. I've read in some places that you may fall within the "normal" range but there could still be problems that aren't detected.
Avatar n tn When I saw thick red blood coming out instead of semen, I freaked out. I had a complete checkup recently. My PSA is normal, prostate is not swollen, blood pressure normal, no cholesterol, blood chemistry is fine. I don't smoke and drink only occasionally. I am about 10-15 pounds overweight but that's not unusual for a man my age. I don't exercise enough but I do watch what I eat. In every occurence, the pattern is the same: blood in my semen and more often than not, small blood clots.

Avatar f tn I went to the docs the next day and explained to her the symptoms I was having and after a quick feel of my tummy she said it seems quite tender and she told me she was referring me to the hospital for a vaginal ultrasound scan to see what's going on. She phoned the unit whilst I was in the room and she booked me in with them for a scan. I was told because it was a suspected ectopic I had to go there straight away. I went straight to the hospital and had to wait a little while.

987242 tn?1335494370 The necessary test for ruling out leukemia is a simple blood test. It is called a complete blood count (CBC) and it includes evaluation of the white blood cells, red blood cells, hemoglobin/hematocrit, and platelets (which are all important components of your blood). If there are no abnormalities evident on this test, you do not have leukemia.
683231 tn?1467326617 Lucinda is saying that even low levels of virus (not those just considered below the level of quantification) does not mean treatment failure in Harvoni patients. I believe that is true of Viekira Pak patients as well. This happened to a few in my trial. The only thing I disagree with is she writes of the Abbvie Assay what undetected means, " This means that if you have 12 IU/ml of hepatitis C (HCV RNA) in your blood, the test will detect it.
Avatar f tn A complete blood count may also help rule out an anemic state. Do you have any problems at work or at home? Have you been sleeping well lately? Have you been eating well lately or are you on a diet?

Avatar f tn Just trying to understand how the live works...so the blood comes in through the portal vein and hepetatic artery, gets processed in the liver and goes back out veins to the body? so grade/inflamation covers the vein/ arteries and how well the blood can flow in and out of the liver and the stage covers how your liver can process or filter your blood?
Avatar f tn They probably did a complete blood count. That would also show besides the hemoglobin being low that your RDW is high (this is the red cell distribution and how many cells are abnormal). When you have iron deficiency anemia you don't have enough iron in the red cells so they have different shapes and sizes. I have gone through this but didn't need the iron or ferritin transfusion.
