Hello- I saw my physician last week for some vague symptoms of fatigue, hair loss and headaches. Most of my resulting labs came back normal , though 3 readings were ever so slightly below the assigned reference range. These were a serum calcium of 8.9 (normal range 9.1 – 10.6 mg/dL), red blood cell count of 3.8 (normal range 4.0 - 5.3 M/uL) and hemoglobin 11.9 (normal range 12.0 - 16.0 gm/dL).
I received these results through an automated on-line system, with no commentary from my doctor. Is it safe to assume that since these results are so borderline, there is no cause for concern? For reference, I am a 40 year old female in normally good health. I am also a long distance runner and have definitely been feeling more fatigued that usual during runs, which was one of my reasons for getting my blood worked up. Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
