Yesterday I went to see my primary care physician (PCP) for my monthly check-up. I did labs last week, so my doc gave me the results.
Surprisingly, most of my readings were within the normal range. Kidney function and liver function were fine. My sugar levels and bad cholesterol were also fine, but my good cholesterol is low.
My iron is extremely low, even though I take a supplement daily. This is due to the anemia, but I can’t take a higher strength dosage of iron because then it interferes with my thyroid meds.
My white and red blood cell levels are also off, so I’ve been referred to see a hemotologist. Most likely I’ll have to have an iron infusion IV treatment. I’m a bit nervous about this because this treatment could provoke an allergic reaction. But I guess I’ll figure it out after I talk to the hemotologist.
Next week, I see the eye doc and my cardiologist – both for the first time. It’s been years since I’ve had an eye exam, so hopefully I don’t need glasses.
But since my labs came back mostly positive, I don’t need to see my PCP for another 3 months. Yup, I don’t have to go back until January.
Compared to where I was a year ago, I’m really happy with the progress I’ve made.
