I'm new to the board so let me give you a brief intro of who I am. I'm a 24 year old, recently married guy. Over the course of the last few years, I've given up school, exercise and many other things to a job in grocery management. (Quick, easy to get into, and more $$ than I was getting elsewhere) In doing this, I've gone from a muscular 200 lbs in around 2001 (I'm 5'9" ) to a whopping 275lbs currently. It's like I'm the same guy as before but wearing several layers of clothes on top hahaha. Anyway, I've been offered a much better paying job, one that required a complete physical. Part of this ordeal was a BLOOD TEST lol I just got the results back today and just need some advice and medical insight as to what I'm looking at. I plan on seeing a physician once my new health plan and payroll kicks in, but please tell me what you can based on this test!
Anyways, the medical center sent me a copy of the blood test results with a later saying I need to follow up with a family physician saying "Need follow up PCP". Many things here are mid-range, so I'm going to list what is high/low, the actual value, and what the report says is normal. Here goes:
My blood pressure was 128/82 Pulse of 88bpm
Attribute Actual Value "Normal" value
--------- ------------- ------------
Protein 8.5 gm/dl 6.0-8.3
Globulin 3.7 gm/dl 2.3-3.5
Alkaline Phosphatase 139 U/L 30-122
ALT 58 U/L 7-40
Cholesterol 249!!!!!! 0-200
Triglycerides 190 40-160
HDL Cholesterol 35 40-70
LDL Cholesterol Cacl. 176 <130
VLDL 38 8-32
LDL/HDL ratio 5.03 0-3.0
WBC 11.91 5-10
MCV 81.2 82-96
Total Neutrophils Abs 8.2 2-8
Glucose 100 65-110
So that's really everything that stands out. Is there any more information you guys need? I need to know what I'm at risk for. I understand my cholesterol is extremely high and I've already started taking steps to correct this. if there is ANY other information you may have PLEASE share. I mean, is there a chance that i may be becoming or may already be diabetic?
Thanks guys for all your help.
