This is Dr. David

your sed rate is a bit high which can be a sign of inflammation or infection in your body.

platelets are a bit high but this can be a sign of infection or inflammation.

you should get blood work to check for influenza virus infection.

I hope your flu symptoms are getting better

make sure you wash your hands frequently.

your creatinine levels are a bit high and this can be a sign of dehydration or weakness of your kidneys

are you not drinking enough water or fluids?

Ok I had 2 different flus back to back so I'm not dying? Should I get my blood checked again in a couple weeks? I'm chugging my water
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

you should get your creatinine levels checked again to make sure it comes down properly.

you should not be dying. you could be suffering from bad viral infection.

you might need to take probiotics and eat more fruits and vegetables and get more rest to help your immune system

regular exercise can help your immune system

you should make sure you get regular sleep

if your thyroid levels are not correct, this can affect your sleep and worsens your immune system.
