Question ??? about lab results.

Hi, I had some blood(no urine)tests done this a.m. I saw some of the results posted on line but have not heard back from the doctor. I am wondering if someone could tell me if these are in the normal range or perhaps a cause to worry. There are as follows:

Sodium: 139 mmol/L

Potassium: 4.4 mmol/L

BUN: 8 mg/dL

Creatinine: 0.53 mg/dL


A side note my A1C was 5.6 which I believe is doing pretty well.


Any help on my labs would be appreciated. Thanks!!!

Re: ??? about lab results.

Congratulations.... your A1c, while not nondiabetic, is excellent if you are a diabetic !!!! It shows a very good control of your sugars.

Of the four blood levels you state, 3 of them are in the "normal" range, and your creatnine is slightly lower than normal. Which probably just means that you have good kidney function.

You look healthy and well, by these results, and none of these look like any cause for worry to me .....
