Hello Dr. Roberts
thank you for responding. this test was done on 5/29 of this year and as far as medical conditions I have occasional IBS. and occasional GERD. I also have seasonal allergies..
my blood work came in with everything in reference range however one was test name showed higher result.
the name is : MON% is 17.6 and MON# XXXXX XXXXX its higher then the norm and I am wondering why.
the blood test was not taken in the morning on the empty stomach as suggested so I am not sure if it might have something to do with this. and I did go to the gym prior to coming to the dr. Few days before that I had a very big scare with one of my family members and was very stressed out. that resulted in aggravating my IBS. that's why I came to the dr. after the dr looked over my blood work he suggested that there is nothing to be alarmed about. he said this result can vary through out the day. just wanted to hear another opinion
thank you for your detailed explanation. the reason why I got alarmed is because on the reference range it says HIGH on both test names
so it says %MON 17.6 and reference range 4.0-10.0
#MON 1.7 and reference range 0.3-0.8
is there something I can do to lower it ? I am just trying to understand why it would be out of range if all other tests r absolutely normal
ok great I will do that .. one last question I have been taking magnesium with B6 vitamin...and multivitamins as well
I've been told that it help with nervous system since I am prone to a lot of stress and anxiety..
magnesium relaxes me
I just want to know if continuous use of magnesium and multivitamins are ok or I need to take breaks
