Doctor comments for the bloodwork below.
Here is my doctor's review of your test answers:
Your blood (Hemoglobin) value is good.
Your MCHC value is just below the lower reference value, which in some cases may be due to iron deficiency. In your case, this is probably a normal variant with no link to illness because your blood (Hemoglobin) value is good and the deviation is so discrete.
In your blood fats you will see a low HDL value, which is also called "the good cholesterol", and at the same time your LDL value is higher compared to the desired level below 3.0. LDL is also known as "bad cholesterol". This means that your cholesterol distribution becomes somewhat disadvantageous, which is illustrated by a slightly increased ApoB / ApoA1 ratio. What is being sought for men is a ratio below 0.7, which can often be affected by dietary changes (eg a decreased intake of saturated fat and an increased intake of fiber) and with increased exercise.
Your blood sugar levels are good and make no suspicion of diabetes. Your C-peptide value indicates normal insulin production.
Your value for leukocytes (white blood cells) is slightly elevated, which is quite nonspecific and the value can e.g. be elevated in a variety of mild infections.
Your value for high-sensitivity CRP is between 1-3 mg / L. The optimal level is <1 mg / L, which indicates a low risk level for future cardiovascular disease, while a CRP value> 3 mg / L may indicate an increased risk for future cardiovascular disease. For a clearer picture, repeated sampling over time is recommended. Note that the risk of cardiovascular disease is also affected by factors such as age, sex, smoking, blood sugar levels, blood fats and blood pressure.
No signs of iron deficiency can be seen in your test answers. Your Ferritin value, which is a measure of the body's iron deposits, has fallen slightly since the previous sampling, but is still at a good level. Your values ***8203;***8203;for Iron, Transferrin (iron transporter in the blood) and Transferrin saturation (iron saturation) are all within the normal reference range. Thus, all your iron deficiency samples are good, but as your Ferritin value has dropped, it may be good to follow your iron values ***8203;***8203;in the long run to see that they do not decrease further.
All your vitamin levels are good. Your vitamin D has increased and is now at an optimal and healthy level, which is considered to be values ***8203;***8203;between 75-250 nmol / L.
Your thyroid specimens (thyroid specimens) are within the normal reference range and no signs of abnormal thyroid function are seen in your test responses.
Your testosterone value is elevated this time, but since it is a relatively discrete increase this may be a normal variant. However, it may be of value to follow up with a new test in 2-3 months to see that the testosterone value does not deviate further.
Your estradiol value has increased since the previous sampling and is now also elevated, which is an observation that you should discuss with your health care doctor if this is new or unexpected for you.
Your Phosphate value is just below the reference range, which can be seen with treatment with certain medicines or be a normal variant.
Your Chloride value is slightly elevated, which can be seen when taking certain medicines, at a slight under-hydration or it can be a normal variant with no connection to illness.
Otherwise, no deviations are seen in your test answers.
The goal of a health check is to identify risk factors and prevent future ill health, so it is especially meaningful to follow their values ***8203;***8203;over time. I hope that knowing your values ***8203;***8203;can give you continued motivation and inspiration for good health!
Please note that it is not possible to determine if you are healthy or ill only through blood tests. If you have a suspicion of illness, you should seek regular medical care for an overall assessment. Read more at werlabs.se/faq under "Frequently asked questions".
