Thanks ppm guy
My labs came in, pretty consistent with the labs they took in July, hey 6 more months and i'm still chugging along.
bilirubin - 1.2 in July and 1.1 in Dec
serum sodium - 142 in July and 140 in Dec
INR - 1.3 in July and 1.3 in Dec
serum creatinine - 0.94 in July and 0.95 in Dec
plateletes - 44 in July and 47 in Dec
ALT - 47 in July and 45 in Dec
AST - 27 in July and 29 in Dec
PT - 16 in July and 13.4 in Dec
There were some other items that were outside the normal range like white blood cells (low at 3.1), hemoglobin (high at 17.5), hematocrit (high at 50.5), MPV (high at 14.8), lymphocytes (low at 769). These were only just outside the norm ranges and I sent a note to my Hep Dr to find out what these mean.
All in all, I am doing well, didn't eat any junk food at all over the holidays. My wife is very surprised and impressed as I've always loved cakes and sweets. None for me.
And eating so well really makes me feel great, no sugar high and low easy digestion, easy to sleep. I'll work on getting something back from Atlanta and I'll stay the course on investigating the copper and I'll get these last 10 pounds off. It looks like I'm still a MELD 10 so I'll hold for now and then deal with the transplant issue if and when I get there.
Merry Christmas! Happy New Year! Best wishes for 2018!
