Forget HIPPA I need some help understanding my blood test results - my Dr. did not explain so I could understand and my research on the net did not help either. Forum members, take this as a compliment, I know that I will get some great info back, thanks in advance. I should mention that I did see on the net something about vigorous exercise in close proximity to a blood test may effect results but I could find no further info. I am not even sure when I worked out in relationship to my early AM fasting blood sample.
Over the last couple of years I have been riding and exercising at a high level (for a 60 yr old). I have lost over 110 lbs mostly through exercise. I had a Lipid Panel, Hepatic Function Panel and Homocysteine, cardiovascular blood test done. The out of range results were:HDL 25 - Dr. said this was unusual since the only thing he knows that raises HDL is exercise. All other Lipids were good, including Triglycerides which were 600 before exercise program and were 68 this time. In the Hepatic Function Panel my Protein (5.5) and Globulin (1.9) were Low and Alkaline Phosphatase (133), AST (61) and ALT (83) were all above range.
