I saw the doc yesterday and got the results of all the tests he ran. He said I have a lot going on. I have an intestinal parasite for one thing. He wouldn't be too worried about it but with all the constipation and gas and stomach problems I have been having he wants me to do this cleanse to get rid of it. More on that later. I am also a little anemic so he gave me a supplement to try. He also noted that my liver doesn't seem to be functioning as well as it should and I actually do have hypothyroidism.
He gave me this cleanse and 10 day diet to do, which I am going to start tomorrow, I am going to starve, but its supposed to really clean me out and make me feel so much better. I have to go grocery shopping tomorrow for food, its really limited with what I can eat. I have enough for breakfast and lunch but really should go shopping after that. I actually should go now but I'm not feeling that good and I didn't get much sleep last night because I had to get up early to go see my Medi-Cal case worker this morning at 8am. I am trying to get rid of my share of cost. So I will go shopping tomorrow.
The doc said that on the day I took the blood test I had an infection, he can't be sure where but it was somewhere. I guess it wasn't too bad or he would have wanted me to get tested again or given me something for it. He also said that the tests showed that I had some dehydration issues, which is weird because I drink a lot of water. Though I do get up several times during the night to go to the bathroom.
Well, hopefully this cleanse and the supplements he gave me will help with at least some of my problems.
