    What do these urinalysis and blood reports indicate?

default
Posted on Sat, 4 Jun 2016 in Internal Doctor Category
Question: Hello,
Earlier this week I visited my doctor for an annual checkup. I had blood work done as well as an urinalysis. I was anxious to see the lab results so I went to Medical Records to get them, but am having difficulty understanding them and how to correctly read them. The doctor called me and left me a voice mail saying that everything was looking good, and to call him back to talk about it. When I called back the next day to speak with the doctor, the receptionist said she was told to tell me that everything was good. So I am assuming that everything is quite fine, but I would like someone to take a look at the results and tell me if there is anything I should be concerned about. I am a 32 year old male and I weigh 280-285 pounds. I know weight is a big thing and I am currently working on losing weight. I just want someone to read my lab results and then tell me what, if anything, I should be concerned about and what might I need to do in order to resolve any issues (if any).

Brief Answer:
Relax .. almost all the values are within normal limits..

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX , Welcome to HCM,

Yes I can understand your concern , I've gone through your query as well as all the reports..

Well the good news is most of your reports are within normal limits so not to worry..

Now it's quite understandable that explanation of this kind of parameters should always come directly from the responsible physician and not via 'Receptionist', so your concern is quite justified..

Now as per your age and BMI , your weight is needed to be aggressively monitored and preferably reduced by at least 5-10% within next 3-4 months..

Among those lab parameters , the LDL (bad cholesterol) is found borderline high while the HDL (good cholesterol) is just borderline lower side..

Considering your age , and these kind of borderline values, even I don't think that you'll be needing any medications for this in the beginning..this should get corrected with the help of daily exercises, life style and diet modifications..

First of all, don't just keep on working-out on your own, join a professional gym (if you haven't already), along with a complete diet plan and goal for weight reduction over a period of time..

Gym is not only for building packs and muscles but also for a toned body and a healthy mind.. So talk to the trainer and get a proper plan chalked out..

Also it'll be better to seek help of a dietitian to get a complete Diet chart as per your need with keeping in mind that you need a High protein, mod Fiber, Low Carb and low fat diet plan..

Drink a lot of water(as per your weight , you should be drinking at least 4-5 Ltr per day), you won't believe it actually helps you to loose weight..

Avoid junk foods, deep fried or greasy foods.. try to include green leafy veggies, whole grains , fish products(Salmon, tuna, sardine , herring etc.) they contain lean meat , and naturally rich in HDL which will be really beneficial for you, try to avoid too much cheese and go for yogurt instead..also avoid drinking those fizzy carbonated market beverages..

I hope this'll clear your doubts, let me know if anything's not clear..

With strict plans and regimes , it'll be just a matter of time till you'll be perfectly fine , so have faith..

Take Care
Kind Regards
