New Blood Test Results and Need Help Posting to History


Hi Deborah,

You should be able to click in those spaces where your you initially wrote information and add new information--another row of lab values, info regarding body condition, etc.  Just put the date and the updated information in on the copy you have on your hard drive and then upload the new case history with the new information into your CH file.  You cannot do it online, as it will not save your new information.  Ask me how I know this!  Once you have updated all the information on your hard drive copy and save it, then go back to ECH7 and upload the new CH to your file and delete the old one. 

The reason that there is no place to put your iron test results is that KSU is the only place that can do all 3 tests, (including a ferritin level) required to test for iron overload.  You can put your iron test in the those spaces and just put a note in the far left column where the test was done.  Make sure you change the lab reference units and ranges if they are different. 

Hope that helps!

I just received Tara's newest blood test results: Insulin 14.42ulU/mL(Reference Interval 10-40),Glucose 85mg/dl(reference Interval 71-113), Leptin 3.34ng/mL(Reference Interval 1-4) and I also had an iron test done: 183ug/dL(Reference Interval 75-206).

 Looking at the IR Calculator it shows G:I Ratio is 5.89,RISQI is 0.26, MIRG is 7.64, Compensated IR/Laminitis Risk, and the Leptin Range is Low.

 I went to her History and it looks like there is no room to post the new results and keep the two previous test date results on there.

 Also, not sure where to put the iron test results as History shows a place for KSU Iron Panel but that wasn't what I had done. I just asked the vet to check her iron. Maybe that result should be entered under the place where I put the Insulin,Glucose and Leptin results?

 Should I delete the results and information regarding things like body condition scoring, etc.. and anything else that has changed from 2013 (I have a hard copy of them) or is there a way to add the new ones by adding spaces for the new information? Sorry, can't recall what I did to update last year. Thanks for any guidance in this.
