Why am I neutropenic while other blood counts are normal?

Hello l was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2015 and treatment included a right hemicolectomy and chemotherapy for 6 months (carbonating and elodea). Unfortunately on the 2nd June l have been diagnosed with an Unknown primary tumour. I have had CT guided biopsies of nodes at the para aortic arch and USB, CT and PET which all are negative. L have recently commenced Carboplatin and gemsitabin and have become so neutropenic on the first cycle. My remaining bloods are normal except C19.9 (785). I would appreciate your input especially to wondering why l remain neutropenic and the other counts are within normL limits. The neutrophils decreased from 1.2 to 0.6. Many thanks for your input

I recently got my hormone levels tested, my SHBG is above range?

Hello, I recently got my hormone levels tested (female) and all the other levels were within normal range apart from SHBG which was above range at 187 nmol/l. I have no idea how harmful or dangerous that is – my gp just reported my results as ‘normal’ (eventhough the maximum level for SHBG is 144 nmol/l?). I have a history of eating disorder and read that could contribute to SHBG level. Is my SHBG level dangerous and how can I lower it?

I am trying to keep my liver enzymes in normal range for upcoming blood test?

I am trying to keep my liver enzymes in normal range for upcoming blood test. They were normal in April – AST was 32, ALT was 28, at that time I was drinking maybe 4 or 5 pints of beer on weekends. Since, I have been consuming a bit more, only on weekends (6-10 pints on weekends). My blood test is next Friday (8 days from now), and I have not had any alcohol since sunday (4 days ago). Is it likely my liver levels will rise from this? Or generally remain in the same range? I am a healthy male, 44 yrs….I am not over weight and exercise daily.

I have much higher blood pressure when resting…is it unusual?

On checking my blood pressure over the last 3 days I have found that i have much higher blood pressure when resting – either on going to bed or waking – 150/100 to 145/95 with a pulse rate of 55 to 63. However when active during the day it varies between 135/90 to 118/74 with a pulse rate of 65 to 80. I am 66 years of age/ 6′ 2″ tall and 15 1/2 stone.
This seems illogical. I am a non smoker and light drinker and have no historic illnesses.
I have recently been referred to a cardiologist following a single episode of moderate chest pain that woke me up from sleep and lasted about 1 hour but with no other symptoms. he found no obvious reasons for the pain but arranged an echo cardiogram which showed some enlargement of the arteries in my heart(?) which he wanted to follow up in 12 months.
I am on vacation at the moment so cannot speak to my GP with the findings. Can you advise or confirm that the readings are not unusual or require urgent investigation
Many thanks
