My labs came back. Admittedly, I fully expected everything to be normal -- they always are!
This time, not so normal, so I'm a little concerned. I'm frustrated.
Lymphs (Relative) were high at 49. The range is (14 - 46)
Total Cholesterol is 128 (awesome, right?) The range is 100 - 199
Triglycerides, 74 (awesome again) The range is 0 - 149
Vitamin D, 25 Hydoxy was low at 27. The range is 32 - 100
Vitamin B6 was high (not good!) at 43.7. The range is 2.0 - 32.8
Vitamin B1 was high (also not good!) at 85.9. The range is 25 - 75
Methylmalonic Acid was also high at 618. The range is 73 - 376
Doc wants me to come in with all my Vitamins. :(
Chewable Calcium Citrate
Biotin (a B)
He's concerned about my low HDL, elevated Methylmalonic Acid, B6 and low Vitamin D
I don't get it -- why is it that some people who don't give a rat's ass when it comes to taking care of themselves post-op, seem to fly through without issue?. 16 months later I still eat right, journal my food and take all my vitamins and exercise more than moderately, regularly!
Damnit it pisses me off. I guess it is all part of post-op life. I just thought if I followed the rules, that I would be fine.
My hope is that these labs ae off, because they were taken while I stil had the diseased gall bladder and was suffering the effects of it the week before it was removed. I'm hoping the low HDL can be corrected by taking my supps again; I had cancelled out of my diet everything that had fat (good or bad) because of the gall bladder stuff.
