Hi everyone, thank you in advance for any help.
I'm currently trying to figure out labs and I am a little confused. I understand some of the basics I'm just having a hard time putting it all together.
1.) I was looking at a patients labs and do not know why her AST and BUN are elevated.
What I do know:
BUN is kidneys, but her Creat is normal, could it be due to dehydration?
AST is liver, but ALT is normal.
2.) Patient has a hx of anemia
RBC, HGB, HCT, are all low.
Pts SED rate is high, along with an elevated hemocysteine.... does this go along with anemia?
Pt also has a low platelet count 98,000.
