I am negative for both and would like to remain so. The labvalues on his HSV 2 test were quite high. My question is do your lab values fluctuate or go up when my partner is in an outbreak? An example of what I am asking would be similar to a case where someone has some sort of bacterial infection and their white count goes up.
AND HE BEGAN GETTING SYNAGIS SHOTS IN OCTOBER(THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO HELP PREVENT RSV)AND HE GOT RSV IN FEB. I DONT TAKE HIM MANY PLACES AND DONT ALLOW HIM AROUND OTHER CHILDREN. I FEEL LIKE I HAVE TAKEN MANY PRECAUTIONS AND YET HE IS STILL SICK. HE HAD CROUP 2 WEEKS AGO AND IT JUST CAME BACK AGAIN AND HE HAS YET ANOTHER EAR INFECTION.I AM IN THE PROCESS OF TRYING TO FIND A GOOD CHILDRENS HOSPITAL THAT I CAN TAKE HIM TO. LET ME KNOW IF YOU RECOMMEND ANY.
Because obviously he's sick. Xopenex is used to treat and PREVENT bronchospasm in children and adults. Pulmicort is used to prevent and reduce symptoms (wheezing and shortness of breath) caused by asthma. This medication belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids. It works directly in the lungs to make breathing easier by reducing the irritation and swelling of the airways. Amoxicillin is a antibiotic which a lot of times is used to treat bronchitis along with many other things.
That's not an easy question to answer since reference ranges for thyroid lab tests are very flawed. TSH is a pituitary hormone, and as such is a screening test at best for asymptomatic individuals. Typically, individuals who are hyper have TSH less-than 0.3, and hypos have TSH greater-than 3.0. However there are esoteric thyroid problems that don't conform to that rule and can actually reverse it.
My husbands grandmother had non-hodgkins. Now my husbands labvalues are abnormal. Wbc, Rbc, Hct, hgb, rdw, neut, lymph, mono, baso#'s are high. Just really concerned. Referring us to a hemotologist. what do you think.
re comparing apples to apples. Am I wrong about this, and now that I have 2 greatly different labvalues, how do you decide which one is the accurate on? Seems like another test needs to be sent to the original lab for re-testing.
TSH 0.29: free T-4 1.79. The TSH is on the low end of the scale and the free T-4 on the upper end. Where is my point of balance. Am I HYPER or HYPO? My regular D.O. says I'm High, and has ordered a lower dose of the synthroid. I've always dealt with the TSH and Total T-4 so I'm puzzled.
My husband is 27 years old. He had to get a physical for work almost a year ago. Everything came back normal but his TSH level. According to several doctors in our area, it was the most abnormal they had ever seen. It was over 100. His T3 and T4 was within normal limits. Our doctor started him on Synthroid and has increased the dosage 2 or 3 times since. We just went back for his check up and it's still not where it needs to be so the dosage is being increased again.
Welcome to the Caregiver's Forum.
Potassium supplements, other than the small amount included in a multivitamin, should be taken only under your doctor's supervision. If your lab values indicate hypokalemia (low potassium), your PCP will prescribe the correct form of potassium.
Here's the difference in the Potassium :
Potassium chloride is a common supplement given to people with low potassium levels who also have reduced blood levels of chloride.
My question is, are there any specific labvalues that represent ascites and if the “causes” of ascites specifically are getting better? I understand the cirrhosis is the cause but are there certain LAB values that represent or can be used to judge ascites and see if the TIPS will perhaps work again?
Please explain the meaning of INR lab results in relation to PT lab results. Alos can the effects of coumadin therapy for deep vein thrombosis be affected by either SIADH or hypothyroidism? Both of these conditions exist due to (I think) chronic use of DVPA and carbamazipine in a severly mental retarded female who has frequent seizures. Thanks for your help!
