A WBC of 11.1 is completely with normal range. It has no significance.
Hi did you see what I wrote?
What is specific gravity in a urine test
It basically means how concentrated the urine is.
It can change in kidney disease or it can change in terms of hydration. High specific gravity means you have a lot of concentrated solutes in the urine and you are dehydrated.
if it is low, is that ok??
If your other labs are normal, it just means that you are well hydrated.
It is often used for drug testing - people often drink a lot to dilute their urine... and so they will have low specific gravity
how about high chol calc
it is listed as LDL-CHOL CALC 173'2 High
it means that your LDL level of cholesterol (bad cholesterol) is a little high
You should work on eating a low cholesterol diet, make sure you have daily oatmeal, exercise, etc.
if this is still high after a few months, then you may need to take medication like statins
Thanks-appreciate your answers---sounds like I was worried over nothing
Did I provide you with excellent service?
