no problem, thank you again

You're very welcome. And thank you for being so patient. I've reviewed all your results and see there are only a few that were flagged as abnormal. The first, the RBC (red blood cell) number was only slightly higher than the upper limit of normal. This is basically fine, since the RBC's are what carry oxygen in your bloodstream and being minimal high is okay. Better a little high than low, so you are definitely not anemic. The next "abnormal" was the Alk Phos or alkaline phosphatase. On a complete metabolic panel (CMP) the alk phos measures an enzyme released by the gall bladder. Again, yours was minimally above the upper limit of normal, so again, essentially fine, no sign of gall bladder disease at all. Finally, the last value flagged was the mucous on your urinalysis (UA) "Few/LPF" means a few bits of mucous was visible per low powered field on a miscroscope where usually there are none. Again, a little mucous in the urine with no other signs like blood, white blood cells, protein, bacteria etc. is of no clinical concern at all, simply a variation of normal.

Anything else I can help explain regarding your lab test results?

You know the reason why I got these tests was about two years ago I had an ultrasound on my kidneys that showed my kidneys were slightly small, so this new kidney doctor performed these tests; my main complain is more or less bad bowel movements, not fluid; almost like I am not digesting food, when I eat meals like chicken sandwiches, I get exhausted, and I have these reoccurring uncomfortable feeling on both sides of my ribs ( mid range) like when I have to go to the bathroom, or I don't eat food, strange

I understand, thank you for that information. The results from your blood and urine tests show perfectly normal kidney function, so that's good. Your digestive symptoms do not appear to be due to any kidney, liver or gall bladder problems. You may wish to consider consulting with a gastroenterologist should they persist, or if it's already been going on chronically.

Can I answer anything else for you today?

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
