I got a copy of my blood/urine test results from a physical for a new job and it recommends I see a Dr. I have some parts that say I was high and low...
 
anyone know a good site to look up the tests? I have no idea what some of them mean. I also can't decide if I should take them to my Primary care Dr (someone I rarely see) or to my GI.
 
here are some I failed :-)
BUN/ Creat ratio result 25.0 high
 
CBC
RBC 3.92      low
 
CBC
MCH 32.7     high
 
MPV 11.1     high
 
Urine test
blood moderate  high
 
urine test
WBC UF50  17     high
 
urine test
SQ EPI UF50  142    high
 
any ideas where I can look those up? or should i run to my DR or GI?
 
thanks!!!
Karen

will tell you about the blood and urinalysis test results. 
 
Talk to your GI about the blood tests.

Re: Urinalysis, I suggest you see your primary about that. Are you having any lower back pain or pain when you urinate? Your urinalysis results could indicate kidney or bladder infection, so you probably want to do a repeat urinalysis with a urine culture.

Here is another site you might like...........

Looking at your labs you may want to share these with your physician.

thanks everyone! I had a terrible bladder infection a month ago and it makes me think it might still be there... I will make an apt with my primary doc.
