Blood Test results High on TSH, IgA Serum, Triglycerides, Sodium and hsCRP

Recently I had blood test done and my TSH is 5.120, IgA Serum 522, Triglycerides 156, sodium is147 and hsCRP 4.2 which I really don't know what it is. My cholesterol and blood pressure are fine. I'm a 61 yr old female with no known medical problems. During the time of the blood test, I was going through some stressful situation with my mom in ICU.
Please let me know what I should do, I already started taking Lovaza for the high Triglycerides but I don't understand about IgA Serum or the hsCRP which It's a risk for MI or stroke? Thanks for your help with this one, Minerva

Hi Minerva,

These lab tests appear to be checking for your risk of cardiovascular disease-- which looks to be high. You will have to speak to your doctor regarding whether or not this is a true marker for heart disease or whether a certain inflammation gave you a false high result. For example, a person with arthritis and otherwise healthy would have a false high hs-CRP.

Please consult your results with your doctor and keep us posted,

Thanks Rosa Cabrera, RN for your response. At the time of the test I was also having abdominal cramping and a CAT scan showed I had a mass or cyst in my Uterus, I had a D&C and the Doctor removed a 2.2cm Polyp which turned out benign, so I don't know if all of these things contributed to my blood test being so high. I will consult with my primary to follow up. Thanks Again
