I had my bloodwork done a couple of weeks ago but held off posting as there was no urgency.
I requested to have the Thyroid function done (TSH) and also Vitamin D3 along with the other routine tests.
The TSH came back in the normal range 1.54 uiu/ml (Ref Range: 00.35 - 4.94)
Notes under D3 : Vit D deficiency is a common cause of seconday Hyperarathyroidism. In conjunction with other clinical dats, the results may be used as an aid in the assessment of bone metabolism. NOTE ON EXPECTED VALUES: Currently there is no standard definition of the optimal Vit D results. A recent consensus of experts leads to the conclusion that for general health a desirable concentration of Vit D3 is >30ng/ml.
All good there.
My RBC was down at 4.15 (Ref: 4.3 - 5.7)
This is not uncommon as a result of Rads and Chem.
One strange one, and feedback welcome, was BICARBONATE up at 34 (Ref: 21 - 32)
Anyone had similar results and explanations ??
Tx and hope all are doing well.
