Avatar f tn oops I meant ccbc=complete cell blood count, but hardly anyone uses that anymore. complete blood count or full blood count is the norm. Tsh and T4 & T3 uptakes are the tests done for the thyroid. cryoglobulins test would be nice to have, if you haven't. as well as the HLA-B27 which is another test useful if you have arthritis or autoimmune symptoms. for that matter HLA markers should be done if rheumatological symptoms are present.
Avatar f tn Neupogen aka filgrastim is another rescue drug that is typically used to encourage growth of white cells call neutrophils. Docs monitor these levels via CBC (complete blood count) your sis, and your mom, probably have had several cbc's.

462771 tn?1358359443 My first MRI revealed an abnormality at C3-C4 which was the only thing found in the complete course of the MRI between my L-Spine, C-Spine and brain. No legions have been found anywhere else in any scans thus far. Due to the location of the legion in C3-C4, my neurologist put me on a 7 day treatment of Dexamethasone 4 MG tablets, which didn't change the symptoms, but I can rattle off a list of side-effects that I observed.

Avatar n tn I started taking pro-biotics and this really seems to help. Although my blood work came back with some weird findings. Red blood cells are a little large and I have too many white blood cells. This is odd to me. When I read up on it everything points to leukemia. Does anybody else have these things going on? what did your doctors find out?
