Lab Update from Monday and Thursday

Greetings blog readers! With today comes another chapter in the ever-so-interesting world of Nathan's Lab Reports (patent pending). If you remember our last conversation, I had a slightly higher creatinine than I had in the past, so the doctor had my blood drawn both Monday and Thursday to see if there was a problem.

The blood draw last Thursday, this Monday, and this Thursday all showed that my creatinine was up to 1.1. The PA that I saw this week said that I should not worry. I have gained about ten pounds since I was in the hospital to get my transplant, and higher mass can cause higher creatinine. She said not to worry about it, and that it was not a problem.

She also congratulated me again on my high number from the Glofil test. She said I should be very pleased with my new kidney and at how well it was functioning. She also said that she didn't see any other problems with my other labs.

I am going to try and list the full lab results for Monday and Thursday below. It might not fit on everyone's screen, and I apologize. Just change your resolution to 1024x768 or higher today to view the report, and then you can switch back to whatever you were using before.

Enjoy.
