What are the signs of kidney problems


"Kidney problems" is a bit non-specific, as it might mean anything from stones to cancer, but it could be found with

- elevated blood pressure
- unusual u r inary habits
- frothy or odd looking u r ine
- swollen legs or ankles
- fatigue
- nausea
- bad breath and a metallic taste in the mouth
- muscle cramps
- pain around the kidney area

Kidney disease is sometimes silent, but there are good tests for it, so if you are concerned, see a doctor.

Blood test results


Blood tests sometimes called blood panels, are one of a physician's most basic tools. Not that long ago, doctors diagnosed patients through observation and the patients' answers to questions.
Blood tests allow a doctor to see a detailed analysis of any disease markers, the nutrients and waste products in your blood as well as how various organs (e.g., kidneys and liver) are functioning.
During a physical examination, your doctor will often draw blood for chemistry and complete blood count (CBC) tests as well as a lipid profile, which measures cholesterol and related elements.

What causes high potassium


Often, a report of high blood potassium isn't true hyperkalemia. Instead, it may be caused by the rupture of blood cells in the blood sample during or shortly after the blood draw. The ruptured cells leak their potassium into the sample. This falsely raises the amount of potassium in the blood sample, even though the potassium level in your body is actually normal. When this is suspected, a repeat blood sample is done.
The most common cause of genuinely high potassium (hyperkalemia) is related to your kidneys, such as:
- Acute kidney failure
- Chronic kidney disease
Other causes of hyperkalemia include:
- Addison's disease (adrenal failure)
- Alcoholism or heavy **** use that causes rhabdomyolysis, - a breakdown of muscle fibers that results in the release of -- potassium into the bloodstream
- Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors
- Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs)
- Destruction of red blood cells due to severe injury or burns
- Excessive use of potassium supplements
- Type 1 diabetes

What causes low red blood count


Anemia can be caused by pregnancy (usually normal), disease (eg cancer), bleeding (eg menstruation) or an infection somewhere (eg kidneys).

Since it can possibly indicate something serious, pay attention to your doctor and go with that advice.

What are blOod test Helicobacter serology, EBV,CMV,RRV,BFV,ANA, RF


My first suggestion would be to ask your doctor what they mean I think you should understand what he's doing for you.
sounds like he's doing a complete blood panel which usually means that they're testing for 1. how your kidneys are functioning
2.how your liver, heart and other organs are functioning as well. The blood test will usually rule out a whole bunch of things that maybe wrong and pick up on the one thing that you do need assistance with.

If the lab works over the weekend and a STAT request was put in, the results could be available. It depends upon the lab service schedule and workload.
