Make sure you get the B12 numbers... so we can know if CC is using the new criteria!
Copper = 136 Range is 85-155
Methylmalonic Acid = 194 Range is 79-376
Vitamin B12 = 712 Range 221-700
Anti-dlial Nuc Ab
PCA, 1 S
PCA 2, S
Amphiphysin Ab, S
Striational Ab, S (MYGRAV)
Ca Chn Bind Ab, P/Q (Lambrt)
Ca Ch Bind Ab, N Type (Lambrt)
ACh Receptr Bind Ab (MYGRAV)
AChR Ganglionic Neur
Neuronal V-GK+ Channel Ab All were negative
SED RATE WESTERGREN = 24 Range is 0-30
MPA Serium IgG= 999
MPA Serum IgA = 137
MPA Serum IgM = 77
MPA Serum Kappa = 853
MPA Serum Lambda = 342
MPA Kappa/Lambda Ratio = 2.49 Range is 1-3
Vitamin B-6 = 23.2 Range is 5-30

I was sent copies of these results to my home, without my having to ask. I still have to complete the 2 hr GTT, skin biopsies and repeat EMG/NCS.

Anyone see anything interesting or shocking here?

Hi Have you had your D levels checked? ARe any of these tests for auto immune conditions? I can't understand what those you listed mean. I just know when I had all my blood work we tested for auto immune conditions that could continue to this and I know D levels that are low can be signs of certain conditions. I had 2 nc/emg. The first one did not show and the 2nd showed PN. I hope you get some answers and relief. Hey how is the neurontin going?

While your B12 is in the upper range I see CC is still using the antiquated range going down to 220! That's telling on THEM.

Your copper is approaching the upper range, but it is still normal.
Do you eat meat? or take a vitamin with zinc in it? I would wonder what your zinc level is therefore, because when one is up the other can be down. They are reciprocal.

Your sed rate is about what mine tests at.

I would definitely get the serum D run. Many people are very low with D.

This raccoon has come out yesterday since the snow recently melted and can't decide which cherry tomato to eat first. Hubby put them on the feeding bench yesterday morning. (he doesn't like them). They were all gone by this morning.

Neurontin does interfere with Vit D levels and that may be a reason for a change in blood sugars. It should not worsen or cause neuropathy.

Default Results of 2 hr GTT

12 hr fast before the test

Fingerstick = 100
Initial lab draw = 102
75 gm glucola
2 hr lab draw = 122

No other tests until skin biopsies and EMG/NCS which will be on 7/26 at Cleveland Clinic.
