high lymphocytes, alanine tran, creatine serum, cell volume, cell hemoglobin
Sep 22, 2003
Over the last 9 months, my blood work revealed the following:
High reading: lymphocytes (53), alanine tran (36), creatinine serum (1.5), mean cell volume (98.4), mean cell hemoglobin (33.9), glucose serum (139), cholesterol (227), triglycerides (324), and monocytes (11.7).
Low readings: total white blood cell count (3.2), red blood cell count (4.47), mean platelet volume (7.2), segmented neutrophils (30), and granulocytes (38.7).
Are any of these major cause for alarm and if so, what do you suggest that I do?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Your total WBC is a bit on the low side, but no cause for alarm, otherwise your blood counts are normal. Your creatinine, which measures kidney function, is high normal and should be watched. Your serum glucose, cholesterol and triglycerides are high. These tests should always be done when you are fasting for several hours. If you were fasting, then these results also require watching. Treatment might be indicated if you have significant cardiac risk factors (family history, smoking, high blood pressure, etc).
