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..

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.
Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and hard work. have a good day! :-) Paul

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... :)
