More tests. Yuck.

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

My doctor gave me heck for not coming in more often and scheduled me for some tests, a sleep study, my thyroid, and blood sugar. She also referred me to a nutritionist.
She thinks that I might have sleep apnea due to all the weight and that could cause my oxygen level to go down at night and cause fatigue.
No quick cure yesterday:(
Anyway thank you for your support. I am going to go for a walk this a.m. I am not giving up! No way! Have an awesome day:)

    I hope you feel better soon! Meeting with a nutritionist can really help you. You were looking for things to eat to stay within range, so this can be a really positive thing for you. I hope they find nothing else wrong.

    Laurie,

    So glad to hear they are doing a full work up on you to make sure they have covered all of the bases. Once they know what they are dealing with and are able to treat it you are going to feel amazing!!

    In the meantime continue to listen to your body and don't over do it!!

    Take Care,
    Rhonda

    It is always better to know -- isn't it? Hang on there! I've been through all those tests and everyone always says "Patience is a virtue". Yeah, but waiting still frustrates the heck out of people!

    emoticon stay focussed!
