The last step standing between me and my husband starting on TTC is the outcome of my blood work, so I was pretty excited to see them posted online this evening. It looks like everything is fine with just two results being a bit high: the creatine clearance (which has the same name as the overall test?) and the ALT from the comprehensive metabolic panel. From my basic Google search, these are kidney and liver-related. (I’ve previously gotten some periodic high microalbumin results, but nothing that was consistent.)
I’ll call the doctor tomorrow but I’m guessing/hoping two things:
- that if my kidneys or liver were in real trouble, there’d be more red flags on the results, and
- that this would be something they watch during a pregnancy, rather than something that would cause the doctor to tell me not to start TTC.
Any reassuring or realistic thoughts between now and when I’m able to connect with the doctor? I promise not to take anything I read here as medical advice. Thanks!
