Blood test results

Recommended Posts

Hi All ,  So did a blood test last week in preparation for a beginner steroid cycle and the results came in and and some results seem out of whack and my test seems higher than I thought.
Also i have added the doctors note.

Hello Taiko,

Thank you for choosing Medichecks to monitor your health.

Overall, your results are healthy however, there are a few areas which are out of range or could be optimised and are worth discussing in more detail

You have slightly small red blood cells with a low MCH. Small red cells can be associated with anaemia and there are a number of possible causes. As your iron status is normal, the next step is to check for abnormal haemoglobin (such as that found in thalassaemia) with a haemoglobin electrophoresis test.

You have low serum folate. I recommend increasing your intake of folate rich foods such as broccoli, brussels sprouts, asparagus, peas, chickpeas and brown rice. You may also want to consider an over the counter folate supplement.

Your uric acid level does not place you at risk of gout (low is okay).

Your CK level is high, indicating either having high muscle mass, or engaging in heavy exercise or a protein rich meal prior to testing. Yours is only slightly raised today and not concerning.

You have a slightly high level of creatinine. This is used to calculate your estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). Your eGFR is 60 which is borderline. I recommend repeating your test within the next 3 months. Please take care to drink a normal amount of water before your test as dehydration can cause high creatinine levels.

Your basophil level is slightly high. Common causes for this include a recent infection and mild allergy. At this level there is no cause for concern.

Your results are otherwise very good. You have healthy liver function, low inflammation and sufficient levels of iron, vitamin D and active B12.

All your results for your thyroid profile are within the normal ranges. Your thyroid hormones are normal as are your thyroid antibodies revealing no evidence of autoimmune thyroid disease.

Your serum cortisol level is within normal limits making a disorder of your cortisol production unlikely.

Your hormone profile is normal with healthy levels of FSH, LH, DHEAs and Testosterone.

Your protein levels are also normal and thus your calculated free testosterone level is within the normal healthy range.

Your oestradiol and prolactin are normal.

Your cholesterol profile is excellent with healthy levels of protective HDL cholesterol and normal levels of unhealthy LDL cholesterol.

Your HbA1c is normal indicating that you do not have diabetes.

Best Wishes,
