Another lab test
Lets back up to last week. I had a follow up appointment with the G.I. Dr. It went okay. I am to stay on the diet I am following already. We had a discussion about me possibly having a gluten allergy. I was sent to the lab for some blood work. I don't have that particular allergy but my glucose was 161 (it should be around 70-110) and my inflammatory CRP number was 32 (it should be no higher then 8). I went back in today to get my glucose checked again to see if I am diabetic or pre-diabetic. If I am either of those I can possibly just control them with diet and excersize. My diet will change some, but not to much so that part will be easy, the excersizing not so easy. I should find out about my blood work in the morning. I don't know if I could get anymore drawn. I still have a bruise on my arm from last week so I asked if they could take from my left arm today. The lady stuck me, then had to dig the needle around and still couldn't find the vein. After a minute or two of pain I told them to take it out and just do my right arm. To be nice she used a smaller needle. It hurt like crazy because she stuck right in the middle of the already bruise. Giving blood doesn't usually bother me but I think this morning might have scarred me for life!
