In Topic: Carotene

11 May 2004 - 07:58 AM

I previously posted a question about "keratine", but my spelling was wrong.
The blood test was for "carotene".

The DR said that it was "borderline" and I had a small bowel biopsy, which I have yet to receive the results from.

Does anyone know what the normal range for carotene might be???

By the way, when he told me that the carotene results were borderline, he no longer acted like I was stupid!

Thanks in advance for your help!!!

I saw my dr today and he said my CAROTENE (I spelled it wrong to begin with) was "borderline" so he was sure to get small bowel biopsies to be sure.

Apparantly if you have celiac, you don't absorb carotene (vit A??).

Thanks for all of your help.
