I got my blood work back from my doctors visit last week. Of course it isn't the sheet with the complete numbers and I can't call until tomorrow because the doctor isn't in today. I've tried lab tests online, but it didn't really help. So I'm looking for any help you guys can give until I can call, cause I am really confused.
My CBC Just says High platelet count - does that mean my B12 is still too low?
Then My Cholesterol is totally whacky. Total cholesterol 207, Trigylcerides 425, HDL 52 and no number for LDL. I don't eat anything with cholesterol in it, no red meat, no dairy, very little fat, no fried food and I've had my TI removed which I was told was where cholesterol was absorbed. about 8 years ago my cholesterlo was 105, how could it get this high so fast! I've done some research and it says that birth control, steriods and vitamin D, all of which I am on, can increase your cholesterol. Last year my cholesterol was a little high and my GI said not to worry because any medication they would use would bind to the B12 and I need all the B12 I can get. So now what, just wait for the heart attack?
Also my liver test came back abnormal. Once again, though I don't have the numbers. I think it must be the 6MP. But could that be tied in to the Cholesterol?
I know there isn't much to go on, and I will be calling the doctor tomorrow, but any advice? I just can't stop thinking about this.
