Hello Doctor, I am intresting to know about my 2 months old baby s bloodtest results: Neutrophils % confirm 13.3 Lymphocytes % confirm 77.6 Plasma cells % Confirm 0.7 Monocytes % confirm. 5.6 Eosinophils ...
I have several questions actually. what do these lab test results mean :absolute neutrophil count 9.2, erythrocyte sedimentation rate 37, c-reactive protein 2.6, urine epithelial cells 10-15, lupus anticoagulant ...
No it is not the test for HIV. It is comprehensive metabolic panel. It will include kidney function test, liver function test, body electrolytes and blood sugar and protein levels.
On bloodtest results what is VLDL and CO2
VLDL is very low density lipoprotein. Lipoproteins are substances made of cholesterol, triglycerides, and proteins. Having a high level is considered bad as it helps the build up of cholesterol on the walls of arteries.
CO2 is carbon dioxide which is a gas that we breath out of our lungs. It also dissolved in the blood and contributes to the acidity of the blood.

can a doctor know if something is not right by a general bloodtest ? like just a regular bloodtest ?
If it is related to blood specifically rbc, wbc, platelets or bit about plasma - yes. However, specialized tests are necessary for confirmation.
