Hi there,

I did not get your test results in full.

I do see some values posted by you now,

Mean corpuscular volume refers to the average size of the red blood cell. your value 98.5 is considered normal.

Pancreatic amylase 11 is considered normal --no inflammation in pancreas. Amylase goes up in pancreatitis.

Your urine sample contains blood cells. This can be due to the infection or due to the passage of kidney stone as well.

BUN creatinine ratio bit high can be due to the dehydration commonly.

I did not receive any further results.

Please reply back here with any further questions.
