First, the good news. We are gonna drop me down from 400mg of Tasigna per day to 300mg and retest after 3 months. My docs thought it totally reasonable (even though I had to ask for it which bums me out a little bit). My last two readings were .016 (Jan 21) and .013 (July 20) so Im excited about that.
The distressing (if not actually bad) news was my most recent Liver Panel came back a little wonky:
All levels were normal except:
Billirubin 1.1 (ref range .3 - 1.0) ... not worried about that since its been slightly high for a long time.
LDH 123 (ref range 140 - 271)
ALT 58 (ref range 7 - 52)... this is the one that kinda freaked me out the most - I mean obviously its one of the most important markers but its also not *that* high.
Anion Gap 4.1 (ref range 6.2 - 14.7)... seems these are very rarely low so I dont know what to think... all my electrolytes are within reference ranges.
The doctor said that they were "no big deal" and "okay" (according to the nurse I spoke to) but this just fills me with so much anxiety. Does anyone have any thoughts and does anyone else share my terrible habit of overthinking their blood tests?
