Question: Dear Doctor,

I am enclosing the Blood Report of my WIFE and request you to go through the same and advise me on the same.

This test is done as general health checkup and not for with a specific reason sir,

Thank and regards,

Thanks for writing in. I have seen your reports. Firstly, I want to tell the reports are from authentic laboratory.

Thyroid, liver, blood cells, blood sugar, kidney function, hemoglobin, cholesterol, and calcium levels are completely within normal range. Vitamin B12 and iron are essential for blood cells formation, which are also normal.

Only Vitamin D level is low. It can be corrected in around 6 months. Just consult your physician and start with Vitamin D capsules. Make sure that your wife gets exposure to natural sunlight in morning for at least 15 minutes. Because, Vitamin D is synthesized only in skin.

Another thing is that Erythrocyte sedimentation rate is mildly increased. However, it can be transient. Just repeat this single investigation after 1 month.

Hope I have answered your query. Any follow up are welcome.

Thank you Doctor for your quick response and advise.

Could you please explain me “Erythrocyte sedimentation” & is any precaution is necessary sir?
Some times she feels very exhausted and normally she complains for headache, is there any particular reason sir?
I am enclosing again her medical report by highlighting where ever test reports exceed/shortages its normal range (page No 2, 4, 7&10), if possible please advice on the same or can I ignore sir.
Since she has not gone for any tests like ECG/SCAN/ etc, as such is there any other tests are required or this blood test will take care everything Sir?

Sorry to bother you again and once again thank you very much sir,

With kind regards,

Dear XXXXXXX welcome back...

We have already discussed reports on pages 7 and 10. Pages 2 and 4 reports are also within normal limits. You can ignore that also.

Erythrocyte sedimentation is response to stress/any inflammation of body like work, exercise etc. As I said previously you can repeat it after 1 month.

For headache, please consult a physician and get basic test done like blood pressure, sinus tenderness, vision problem done. If indicated, then also go for MRI brain. We can be able to deduce the cause of headache and its treatment better with these tests.

Hope your all doubts are answered. Let me know if you have other concerns.
If all your queries are answered, please close this discussion.

Hi. I am a thirty five year old female with a history of depression. 2 years ago I had a couple of seizure like episodes while still concious but my mri came out normal. I am 5 feet 3 inches tall, weigh 135 lbs and in overall good health.
My concern is I experience body tremors while asleep that wake up my husband. Im not usually aware of this happening since I am deep asleep. I wonder what would cause that. Since the seizure episodes, my hands shake a lot during waking hours when holding my phone or using keys to open a lock. I would like to know what this means. Thanks.

My mother is 89 and on hospice care for advanced A.D. she has developed, over past year, an indentation on the top of her skull running left to right about three inches back from the front of the scalp.

She also has had significant loss in brain mass in past 12 years per MRI studies ren years apart.
