Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am suffering from hypertension, tachycardia, and gastrointestinal issue for a few months. I have been taking medications like tablet Nebivolol 5 mg daily, vitamin D3 6000 IU daily, and vitamin K 150 mg daily. I do not take drugs, alcohol, and tobacco. My blood test results are as follows:

Normal level: Potassium, sodium, CRP, WBC, HGB, HCT, MCV, MCH, MCHC, thyroid-stimulating hormone TSH-3.

Slightly below the referential range: Glucose 72 mg/dl but randomly testing blood sugar during the day showed results in the referential range.

Slightly above the referential range: RBC 5.53 microliter.

I consulted with a cardiologist after a bunch of tests, he does not see any notable problems. He suggested it may be some sort of infection and to get my intestines and kidneys checked but I have not had a chance yet.

Please advise.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

Based on the information provided, it is difficult to provide a definitive diagnosis. However, given the symptoms you have described, it is possible that you are experiencing some kind of infection or inflammation. Your cardiologist's suggestion to check your intestines and kidneys is a good thing, as these organs can be affected by infections or inflammation. In addition to those tests, it may be helpful to have some additional blood tests to check creatinine, urine, and ultrasound abdomen. Your slightly elevated RBC count could be indicative of a condition such as polycythemia, but this would need to be further investigated by a hematologist if you have HCT (hematocrit test) > 50. It may also be helpful to track your symptoms in a journal, noting any triggers or experience.patterns that you notice. This can help your healthcare provider in determining the cause of your symptoms.

Feel free to contact me for further queries.
