Pain in stomach and confusing blood test

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hello All,

My stomach hurt to touch for about a month. Then it just starting hurting all the time. I got some blood test done last week and went to get the results today to bring to a specialist.

The GP mentioned that I would need to repeat the blood test in a week because of the low glucose (57) and  some other things.

The other things are low eGFR, ALT, MCH, MCHC, Co2. ( I think co2,  MCH and MCHC has to do with being dehydrated). Also high Total protien, RBC, Hematocrit.

The urinalysis shows Bilirubin, ketones, blood, andurobilinogen.

I am a 31 yo female. Up until a week ago I exercised for 30 minutes 6 days a week. I eat healthy and do not smoke. I drink less than once a month.

I'm at a loss

    Hi adnola,

    Bilirubin and ketones in urine can also point to dehydration, the blood in urine can either be from.If you were on your period (contamination of the sample) or of you have a bladder or kidney infection.

    High hematocrit rbc and total protein can de due to dehydration too.

    Low egfr (kidney filtration rate) can also mean dehydration.

    The only test results that cannot be explained by dehydration are low ALT and blood in urine. Usually people who are dehydrated will have high ALT so this suggests in conjunction with blood in urine that you have a urinary tract infection.

    Some of the results (ketones, alt, low blood glucose) could suggest inadequate nutrition.

    In short, while you wait to see the Specialist make sure you drink enough fluid and eat well. I hope your abdominal pain is resolved quickly.

      By the way your abdominal pain could therefore be caused by a UTI. Do you have any burning or discomfort when you urinate?

      Makes sense. I don't want to eat or drink to much because of the pain.

    I had the endoscopy done today. The Dr. found inflammation and white spots in the stomach. Said he still didn't know what causes the pain. Come back next week for results of the biopsy.
