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.

    As a nurse, do not worry til there is really something to worry about. Yes being on your period could affect outcome of urinary test. Did you tell your doctor? Do not less pessimism destroy your postive steps toward good health.
