    Exclamation Lab Results ?!?!?!?!

    First Time Being On These Type Of Forums... Allow Me To Introduce My Self. My Name Is Frank Im 18 Years Old. I Suffer From Anxiety/Depression And Insomnia. Im Currently On 200 Mg Of Sertraline (ZOLOFT) One Tablet 2 Times Daily. Which Would Be 100 Mg Morning And 100 Mg At Evening. For Insomnia I Take Trazodone 150 Mg At Bedtime As Needed.

    Anyways I Went To The Doctors For A Yearly Checkup And He Made Me Do Some Blood Work.

    I Need Someone To Explain These Results To Me Because My Doctor Is On Vacation And Im Worried About It, I Saw Some Things That Were High. Wbc; Eos (Absolute); And Calcium Serum. And For Low I Got Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy. Am I In Any Danger?

    Here Are The Results.

    Hi, welcome to forum. I'm not a Dr but your lab tests cause no alarm to me.

    Your wbc value is only .1 from normal. From NORMAL! It's .1 out of normal and I don't call that cause for alarm whatsoever. A high wbc could be from common infection, inflammation, or even aellergy, etc.

    Your calcium is also only .1 from NORMAL. For me, I would not be concerned. Maybe eat too much dairy?

    If these levels go higher on your next blood tests, then I would be concerned.

    For me, I would certainly not take a med to 'adjust' these! If calcium doesn't go down, and you want it to, I would just take some magnesium. High calcium can mean low magnesium levels. (They can't test for magnesium levels)

    The Vit D is low and that's common (mine was too). Raise this with more sun or Vit D3 supplements.

    Nothing I see suggests taking a med. Take some Vit D3 and watch the other levels on next blood test. ONE test is just a reference. The next test will tell you if something is wrong (if wbc & calcium levels go higher)

    So no, from your blood tests, in my opinion, you are in no danger whatsoever.
