Doctors Appointment - Need To Know What To Ask!
0

4 posts in this topic

hi

im going to docs on thurday next week for a discussion abt my results - the receptionist gave me an overview of them - within normal range!! i,ve taken that as everything was normal!.

so my question is - if my results are negative what can i ask the doctor regarding treatment. do i ask for another blood test?, is there something the doctor can do for me that they havent done already? is there a specific test that i can ask for?

all ive had done is blood test - we dont see the results here coz you phone the receptionist and she just tells you if alls well. and the endoscopy.

ive read about checking vitamin levels - is this done with normal blood tests - or a specific one?

im thinkin of asking for all my blood results while ive been with this doc- just to see if it will jolt her into action- maybe she will compare them to see if anythings lowered or, raised,

looking for some advice - thanks

Hi Jillian,

They should give you copies of the test results. If they don't whack 'em upside the head! Nicely of course! :)

Vitamins are A, E D, K and B's and iron that should be tested.

Thyroid is TSH, T3 and T4 and TPO antibodies.

Bone density is not a bad thing to ask for if they have it..

Sounds good Jillian. Writing down your symptoms ahead of time to give them at the visit is a good idea. Not as likely for them to miss something that way. Just use a water pistol for the blazing tho, that should get their attention well enough! :)

Thanks for looking at my art site. It is great fun to do. I hope you do get back into it sometime, It's a good way to get rid of art supplies... :)
