Confusing lab results....low protein?
Latest labs show low total protein of 6.5 g/dl (normal for this lab is 6.7 - 8.5). As a person who eats meat usually twice a day, this is confusing. Or am I confusing correlation? My typical labs show low RDW, but this time I also got low readings in RBC, HGB HCT, CA, Alk Phos, C Reactive Protein and C3 (82.3 mg/dL).
I typically also have normal glucose readings but this time showed 115, although I had just eaten my once/twice monthly rice allowance at sushi so that doesn't concern me too much.
I follow-up with my doc in 3 weeks. Is he going to wig on me because of my diet? He already gasped when I told him I sup with 5000 iu of D3 daily, although my results look good there (58).
Has anyone had similar-ish labs while eating primally?
Perspective: I have mixed connective tissue disease (possibly UCTD but who knows....).
