off i go…

Off to my consultants appointment. But not before a strange call from my GP surgery telling me my blood test result was normal but my theophylline level was 14. I have no ideas what the therapuetic range is and have no idea if 14 is good bad or ugly?? Guess the call came at the right time so I can tell my consultant as he will know. I hope it is all fine as I dont waqnt to ahve to take more tablets or a higher dose as that will jsut make the side effects worse.

  1. The range for therapeutic levels is between 10 and 20, i think, hope appt goes ok and con has some ideas of what to do with you. 🙂

  2. Hmmm does your lack of an update post appt mean you’ve been admitted?
    Hope you’re feeling better soon!

  3. I’ve fond you again!

    Clare is right – the therapeutic range for theophylline is 10 – 20, but apparently there can be some benefits at a level as low as 4. You’re absolutely fine with a level of 14 though.
