Answer: It can mean a number of things. One very probable possibility to the blood in the urine is early signs of failing kidneys. Or even some sort of trauma to the kidneys such as a hard hit. The protein in the blood is most likely a separate issue and easily solved, if your diet has more protein than your body uses, it dispenses the excess protein to the bloodstream. Eat less meat.
Answer: Thrombocytopenia, or thrombopenia, is defined as the abnormally lowpresence or absence of platelets in blood. Platelets are small cellfragments found in blood that are essential for hemostasis andformation of clots. A normal platelet count for an adult is 150,000to 450,000 platelets per microlitre of blood. However, there arealways anomalies where people may have exceedingly high or lowlevels of platelets and still be perfectly healthy. However, whenplatelet counts drop to levels below 50,000 platelets permicrolitre, a patient is generally defined as having clinicthrombocytopenia. Symptoms of thrombopenia include bruising thatdoes not go away (purpura), small haemorrhages on skin and mucousmembranes, blood filled bubbles in mouth, nosebleeds and bleedinggums. People may feel generally ill, with fatigue and weakness.Severe thrombopenia leads to spontaneous bruising on body.
These symptoms occur because platelets serve to clot broken bloodvessels. Clotting is a mechanism where platelets are sent to abroken are of vein, artery, or capillary, where they congeal into amass that staunches bleeding. When one does not have enoughplatelets, the body is unable to stop bleeding in an efficientmanner.

Answer: In humans, normal blood sodium levels are between 135 and 145 millequivalents per liter. Low blood sodium levels are when the sodiumlevels in the blood fall below 135. This is also known ashyponatremia.
Answer: High levels of glucose indicate an inability of the body to produce insulin sufficient enough to support metabolism. Glucose is used by the body in normal aerobic metabolism, converting sugar into energy for muscles. A delicate balance called homeostasis is maintained by the brain to ensure enough sugar is present for the functions needed. This is where hunger and thirst come into play. However, the body needs insulin, a hormone created by the pancreas, to unlock the sugar and use it properly. If sugar levels drop too low lethargy can set in and will not be remedied until glucose is introduced into the body orally or dextrose injected into a vein. Too much glucose can also cause lethargy but because of the body resorting to the less efficient anaerobic metabolism. This method produces large amounts of waste in the cells and blood stream and requires the introduction of insulin. high levels of glucose may indicate a disruption of homeostasis or problems with the pancreas, likely due to early onset type II Diabetes. Talk to your Doctor.
What is the hormonal response to elevated blood levels?
Answer: There are many factors which can cause an increase in these twosubstances in the blood. The most common cause for an increase inthese two together is some sort of an allergic sensitivityresponse. It would be best to discuss your results with your doctorto determine the cause of your results in order to see if eitherfurther testing or some type of treatment is needed.
Answer: SIMPLE LOGIC! WHEN THERE IS SUGAR INFLUX, BLOOD GLUCOSE SHOOTS UP. TO COUNTER THIS(HOMEOSTASIS), ALL THE HORMONES CAUSING HYPOGLYCEMIA(DECREASE IN BLOOD SUGAR) INCERASES AND ALL THE HORNOMES CAUSING HYPERGLYCEMIA(INCREASE IN BLOOD SUGAR) DECREASES. THATS IT!
Answer: Elevated glutamate levels opens calcium permeable ion channels, which flood the cell interior with calcium. This in turn opens pores in the mitochondria, which allows for proteins guarding apoptosis to flood the cell in great numbers, thus killing the cell from inside.
Nitrous oxide is a gas that leaves the system quickly and generally does not show up on routine drug screens. The creatinine is a blood test that measure kidney function. It usually is not part of a drug abuse screen and is not affected by nitrous oxide.
Answer: Respiratory gas levels are monitored in the blood by looking at the gases in the blood through extraction. This influences respiration because it one of the main ways gases are transported in the body.
