Hey Hardy.

So, Quest messed up, and mishandled my blood sample, so I did not get a result on my plasma metanephines.

The urine metanephrines came in low. The metanephrine was below the optimal range (33; range: 36-190), while normetanephrine was normal (89; range: 35-482), and total metanephrines was normal (122; range: 115-695).

Interestingly, the report states that Total Volume was 750 ml. I dropped off 3.5 l of urine. I don't know what else total volume could refer to other than urine volume. I dont know what to make of that, and whether my numbers should be multiplied by 4.5 to get to 3.5 l of urine. Even then, I still will fall in normal range. Any thoughts?

So, it looks like no pheo. Sort of a mixed bag, as now we need to figure out what the heck is going on.

Thanks for any help.
