Explanation Of Blood Test Results?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The examination that you include is a laboratory examination, and with this examination, the first thing you need to know is that not always the abnormal results are abnormalities.
For example, for low hemoglobin. If it is listed there the normal number is between 12-17 mg / dL, if the results you get are 11.8 mg / dL, the computer will still call it abnormal, but medically, the difference of 0.2 mg / dL is not meaningful. Or if indeed the difference is rather large, but at that time you are menstruating, then low hemoglobin is normal, because there is indeed a lot of blood coming out.
Then for urine that is rather turbid, it needs to be seen again, how long has it been cloudy, and what color is cloudy. If you are fasting when checking, or just happen to be drinking less, it's only natural that the urine is cloudy yellow or even dark yellow, not clear. But the important thing is, the color can return clear as you meet the fluid needs, and not remain turbid. The thing to remember is that the laboratory examination is a supporting examination, and can not stand alone. If an abnormality is found in a laboratory, it must be supported previously by a chief complaint, or an abnormality found in a physical examination or other support.
So in responding to the MCU or routine checks like this, what is important for you is to look at the pages of conclusions and suggestions that are usually placed on the back. In that section, it is usually written whether the abnormal results really need to be followed up with an examination by a particular specialist doctor, or it is just a variant that can still be tolerated as we stated earlier.
If the page or section does not exist, our advice is that you should check your condition to a general practitioner first to ensure that the abnormal number is really abnormal, and only later to look for example anemia (lack of red blood cells), anemia due to what, is it because of lack of nutrition, lack of fluids, or are there certain medical conditions.
Meanwhile, what is important for you to do is just maintain a healthy lifestyle with adequate rest, avoid cigarette smoke, don't worry too much, maintain ideal body weight, multiply the consumption of nutrient-rich foods such as vegetables and fruits, and get enough rest. So, hopefully answering your question.
