Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Seems like you're on the right track. The first thing to do with an abnormal lab of concern is to have the test repeated. Sometimes the abnormality was a lab error, sometimes transient and resolved by the time the repeat test is conducted.

If the second result is really of concern, your doctor isn't likely to simply have you wait for another month. More likely, if this is the case, you'll be asked to return to the clinic sooner.

In any event, if you develop additional symptoms or pain, just call your doctor (or write us back here at
