my ESR and CRP are completely normal. no signs of an inflammatory condition. my tumor necrosis factor is elevated however, not sure if that’s sensitive enough as an inflammatory marker
no diabetes. i also don’t believe i have breathing obstruction. i’ve had many x-rays and ct scans of my chest that were all normal. no lung function testing however, but i’m not sure anything would show there (never suffered with any symptoms that would lead me to pursue this avenue).
my carbon dioxide level is normal in every lab. pretty sure all bicarbonate testing has been normal (not even high normal)
interestingly, they also found higher MPV in patient with orthostatic intolerance and found it correlated with sympathetic activation. (but orthostatic intolerance also correlates with some degree of brain hypoxia to my understanding).
