that sounds like a good idea. Please keep us informed. It also will help that you have worked with this Dr before and have a trust bond. It always things easier. Good luck.

your current son's doc has a screw loose. probably more than one. i have had this happen myself, when i've questioned a doc about lab results....they tend to try and back themselves up, even if they know they're wrong. i had a lab done, with an age-sensitive range. the test came back, and i was "normal." upon reading closer, i saw they had used a range for someone born in 1932, not my age. when i called the endo about this and pointed that with my correct range for my age, i was actually well below normal. he said, and i quote, "well, it's not that bad." he HAD to support his original position, right or wrong. needless to say i never went to that endo again.

YES, to going to the new doc and as soon as possible. trends in labs are an important thing, and you are right on target with staying on top of this all. good for you in challenging the doc you have now.
