Clean Bill of Medical Health

AS part of the study that I'm in, they did some blood tests and came up with some interesting results (not necessarily for them, but for me it's interesting).

First off, I had told them that I was unsure if I had a thyroid issue (since there is a family history of it and I exhibited a lot of the symptoms), but the blood test showed that I do not, in fact, have any problems with my thyroid. Thank God.

Secondly, I had told them that I had never been tested for diabetes, but that I know of several cases in my family. Blood test results: no diabetes. Thank God.

Thirdly, I was a little concerned about my cholesterol level, since I don't really have a very good diet. Survey says: normal levels. However, normal is anything below 200 mg/dL, and my results show a 197 mg/dL. So, while it's in normal range, I still could take some measures to keep it down. It still means I have normal levels, though. Thank God.

Pretty much everything checked out fine, with the exception of an anomaly in one of the liver tests, but there's three different tests and the other two were fine, so there's nothing to really worry about.

Now, I'm on my second week of pills. I had been taking them at ten o'clock at night, but I requested to push them back to five o'clock because I want to see if they might have been affecting my sleep. Basically, if I have trouble falling asleep this week, then I'll know it's not necessarily the pills.

My family also has a history of thyroid troubles and diabetes.. I've had blood tests taken to see if there was anything wrong with my thyroid but they kept screwing the results up. So, I'm pretty sure it's all good, but who knows.

Good to know everything's going fine for you.

Hurrah for having good blood work! I have been getting test results as well, and only one thing abnormal, but I don't know what it means. I'll find out sooner or later I guess.

I'm glad you have good health, thrilled actually because you deserve good health. You are a genuinely good person down to your core. However, you'd know for damn sure if you were a diabetic. It's pretty hard to miss.

I hope your health continues to be good.
