Reading Your Blood Test Results - Anemia, Hemochromatosis,etc.

Posted by Bob on December 10, 2002 at 03:50:22:

Hi,

Since I have been getting a lot of help and advice from Dr. Stoll and others on this board, i thought i would give something back.

I have been trying to educate myself about the results of my blood lab work and found this website. It explains the basics of what is in your CBC report for instance.

I hope you find it helpful.

Thanks everybody.

Bob

Thanks Bob: I bookmarked the site so I'll be able to find it next time I have blood work done.

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to have blood counts out of whack and not know before going to see a Doc. and having blood tests? Specifically I know that with white couunts high this may indicate some kind of infection etc.. can you have an infection and don't generally feel sick. I am having some trouble with flatulence, a feeling of hunger even after I have eaten and some mornings my BM is softer with a little mucos ( is having mucos in the BM worrisome?)but I don't generally feel sick. I am just sick and tired of wondering what this is. I know it must sound insane. I don't appear to have a fever though a digital themo. may indicate 97.8 - 98.3. THe old fashioned them. says normal 98.6... go figure. What is a normal temp? and if BELOW 98.6 what does this mean? If you have an infection shouldn't you be SICK, neausea, vomiting, blood in the stool, a high temp. etc. any ideas????
Thanks

Hi, Paul.

Doctors did pretty well before all these fancy tests became available. Certainly there are signs one can find without tests. It takes a lot of training for a receptive person and there are fewer and fewer of them around since physicians have become overly dependent upon "tests".

Holistic physicians tend to be the most interested in using their senses and training BEFORE running lots of tests. Find a good one and hold onto her.

Normal temp depends upon what time of day you take it and how you take it.

Walt
