Hi, I am an American Board Certified Neurologist with vast experience in diagnosing & treating all types of neurological & other medical conditions including the concerns of blood test reports you have mentioned here and I am very glad to help you with your health concerns.

I see that you have mentioned certain blood test results here, could I ask you what is your exact question to us or what are your exact health concerns?

If you are wondering whether these blood test results are normal, the answer is yes these are essentially normal. The blood glucose, anion gap, BUN & Calcium levels you have mentioned are essentially normal.

The normal blood glucose range is usually 70 to 100, yours is 102, so either normal or if at all minimally elevated

The normal anion gap is usually around 3 to 11 and yours is 5

The normal BUN is usually around 7 to 20 and yours is 19

The normal calcium level is usually around 8.5 to 10.2, and yours is 8.4

Yours blood glucose is 102 which is minimally elevated and the calcium level is minimally decreased, but it also depends upon the labs, for certain labs these ranges may be normal too. Even otherwise the numbers are just minimally out of range. Sometimes repeating these tests may show these within normal range. On most occasions such minor differences are not clinically significant, however repeating these tests again is a good idea too.

If you please mention to me what are your exact health concerns or what are your exact concerns with these blood test results we can discuss this further.

Please let me know if you have any further questions; and please click a positive rating (preferably 5 Star/Excellent) to credit for the time & effort put by me in answering your health question, and this is the only way I will be credited for my service to you. If you have follow-up or additional questions you can ask them after the rating too.

Best regards,
