Failed in Two Tests
July 27, 2016 10:00am CST
I got the laboratory results of my blood chemistry tests, and while the other results were good, I failed in the blood sugar and uric acid tests. They went overboard by two points each. At least all my cholesterol levels, triglycerides, etc.were on the normal levels, but I have to diet to reduce my sugar level to normal level; also with the uric acid. I am still happy they are manageable and I think I do not need to take medications for it. This was my assessment of the laboratory results though the doctor have to interpret it tomorrow during my consultation with her. It is easy to tell the results because the normal levels are indicated in the exam results, so I can compare if the results were high, low or at normal levels. This is just part of our regular checkup. Do you also get medical checkups each year or every six months or monthly?

It is good that controlling your diet can help remedy a few of the results. Nope. I do not go for checkups since I have had my fill of doctors from starting with kidney disease at age 5. I do consult a doctor is something appears to be wrong, though.

@hereandthere I am still using it, and from time to time drinking my "miracle" juice, plus my biking exercise. My husband and I were discussing that it could be the ones who helped me achieve this.In the past,I had my legs swollen, so painful and I could hardly walk.

@acelawrites No. I was expecting an automatic appointment in July. Some doctors do that, but it didn't happen, and I waited too long to make the appointment for August, so it's scheduled for the first week in September.

At least they are still manageable and doesn't need medication yet . I have mine every 3 months , because the doctor wants to always make sure that i am in normal level in all aspect of the blood chem . Though sometimes , my cholesterol would go beyond the normal .
