Is there a Doctor in the house?

      4 Comments on Is there a Doctor in the house?


I posted this morning about receiving 9 pages of lab results from the Cleveland Clinic but not having an explanation. Most of the test results say abnormal and that is a bit concerning to us. So I was hoping that someone out there can understand this better then I do. I would appreciate your input on this, as we are concerned that something may be wrong.

I’m not looking for rock solid answers but more of a general understanding of what these might mean. We will see Gavin’s Doctor next week and ask him to explain these to us, as he likely hasn’t seen them yet either.

The only thing I redacted was some personal information and account numbers.

 



Thank you for your help.

OK I am a medical student who does not have a degree and is not even in my program yet. I would not freak out at this point. Most of the test looks good and a few that need a bit tweaking are not life threatening. You should defiantly ask your doctor about it and let them know what kind of diet, medicines and vitamins the patient is on.

Jacob pretty much said what I was going to – one thing being out of wack may be related to another being off. I wouldn't completely freak out untill you talk to G's Dr. It may say it's "abnormal" but it may just be normal for G due to all his meds and stellar metabolism. This is one of the reasons I don't think anyone (myself included) should get a copy of your labs till you see your doctor. I think this has the ability to cause undo stress and worry on our parts. :/ Lemme know what they say.
