Customer:

I do not know why he had the series of tests you inquired about.

Customer:

Sorry. Feeling stupid now. For past 72 hours my son has had severe discomfort in the abdominal area. No constipation. No diarrhea. No gas. Just achy discomfort that he described himself as what he would think would be an ulcer. He does not tend to go to the doctor, feeling that most things will heal themselves, but this is hurting enough that he was willing to go to the doctor. It is not a sharp pain but a dull, chronic aching that encompasses the entire abdominal area.

Dr. Brims :

the causes of elevated urobilinogen in this case could be hemolytic anaemia (excessive breakdown of red blood cells), increased urobilinogen production or re-absorption of a large hematoma (blood collection)

Customer:

If so, how can that be confirmed and how can it be successfully treated, and how does it happen in the first place?

Dr. Brims :

He should repeat the tests again on 30 days, for now they look normal, he can also to a reticulocyte count in his blood to rule out hemolytic anemia

Customer:

I understand repeating the tests in 30 days because for the most part they are normal, but what about how high the urobilinogen level is?

Customer:

.....correlated with the bad feeling in the stomach?

Dr. Brims :

It only says 1+, that is not a value, it should mean it is mildly elevated

Customer:

OK. I see. That explains a lot. Thank you. Sharon
