After every one and their dog telling me I most likely had a thyroid issue and realizing I hadn’t had a lady-part exam in a long time I finally broke down and got a doctor…
and I saw her.
I literally just picked one out of the offered doctors, which is really not like me, but it was good. I like her, and I actually think I’m going to switch my whole family to their office. I ended-up not really being a fan of Mesa Peds, and I think they’re over-priced, but that’s a blog for another day.
Back to me.
I got my lab results back
My thyroid was 1.63 — which is on the lower side of normal, but still normal. Guess that’s not why I am fat.
My glucose was 93, which I am not thrilled about… still seems a little high.
My cholesterol is still high (224). Which it has been since before I got married. And it’s just dang annoying. Anyone have anything that actually brought their cholesterol down? I have lost like 40 pounds and it’s still the same. It may have gone down about 10 points, so I am hopeful that further weight loss will bring it down more… but I am still not happy with it.
Anyway — oh, my pap smear was normal. Hip-hip horray.
So, the moral of this story is:
Have you had a check up recently? You really should. It’s important to be seen, and thanks to Obamacare, mine was free. 🙂
I mean, “free” (with my 505 monthly insurance premium).
