Scary Test Results
Monday, May 10, 2010
So I went to the dr. for a blood pressure check and, in that department , I'm in control. But I've been having problems with my legs recently and don't really think it's restless leg syndrome. My dr. gave me a referral for a neurologist. That, I'm grateful for.
But, she also ordered blood work and a urinalysis. (mind you, I just had this done in February and everything looked really good.) But I got a call the other day that we need to do the test again. I guess they found some protein in the urine. (In Feb. it was fine) And, they want my blood test to be fasting. Am I finally facing a Type 2 Diabetes diagnosis? I can handle that, if it happens. But, what scares me is, do I already have neuropathy and kidney involvement? How can that be? I've never been diagnosed...but my dr. and I have watched this pretty carefully (because of my risk factors).
I suppose the only thing I can do is wait for the newer results. Looking on the internet is scary because of all the doom and gloom. I also wonder about the accuracy of the urine test because I was on my period at the time. Could that skew the results? Oh boy. Something more to worry about.
