My Lab Report...August, 2010

 

My lab report for August, 2010. I have always thought some members here might think I am a fake, and I cannot possibly have very good health after 65 years of type 1. I thought I would post these labs to show people who do not know me well that I do have good numbers.

My FBS was 35 according to the report, but it was 50 when I got back to the car. If I had actually been 35 my wife would have been feeding me glucose tabs. I did not feel so bad and was able to take care of myself. I know the lab report of 35 was incorrect.

My doctor always scribbles all over the report when he goes over them with me. Lol!

Why don't they give you the actual GFR numbers? It's supposed to be above 90 (120 optimal), but the lab just says >59. BAFFLING! :o) I analyze labs a lot, so I'm just curious... heh heh.

All your labs look awesome, though! Great job, Richard :o)

Good job Richard!  Don't know if you do this, but I'm always worried about having a high blood sugar at doctor's appointments and so I tend to run a little low.  Guess it's my version of cramming for the test!

lol. my sugar is usually high when I get my labs taken. probably nervousness lol. but then they are like, 'oh a1c of 6 something..you're fine". lool.

beautiful numbers Richard :) I think you give a lot of us hope. The fact you have had diabetes so long ( and even back before we had any decent sort of medicines or care - truly amazing)and are in good health. I get all doomsday sometimes - my mom had diabetes her whole life and had a lot of health complications - she passed away in August at 53 :( Seeing her struggle has forced me into taking the best care of myself that I can - i hope to be a sucess story like you one day.

lol i like how they put all the diabetic a1c info at the bottom under your a1c..

Thank you friends, I may post my labs again in 2020! Lol!

 

C, I did not know that a particular number is sometimes given instead of the > 59.  Sorry I can't answer your question.

heh, it doesn't matter. maybe it was just the hospital i was working at did labs differently. :o)

i also had that issue when i got my labwork i had an fbs of like 30? but really i was like 80 something... no idea what happened there... but i also get veryyyy nervous when i take a blood test!

C and Aneka....there is a note on my lab report, just below my false BG reading that says:

"Glucose may be decreased due to prolonged incubation of serum on the red cells prior to analysis."

You can read that on the report. I think that means that the blood sample sat for too long before being analyzed. If They had done the analysis immediately after the sample was taken from my arm, then the result would probably have been higher. They gave me a number 15 points lower than my meter. Their number is ALWAYS lower than my meter. A CDE on another site pointed that out to me. I had not read the note.

Aneka, you result was about 50 points lower than your meter, so your blood sample may have sat much longer than mine before being analyzed.
