HGB-A1C Blood Test and Chem Panel

Posted Dec 01 2009 10:04pm
I have some good news. I called and demanded a blood test be done for my sugars. The test I demanded is the HGB-A1C. This test will tell how my body has handled sugar in the last 6 months. I also found out that Metformin can cause liver damage. I did not know this. With this new information I am going to have a chem panel done to check my liver function. After I called and spoke to the nurse she told me she would go over this with the doctor and call me back. She called me back about one hour later and informed me the doctor has approved me having the blood work and she would mail me the lab slip today and I should get it by Wednesday. So I will be having the blood draw on Thursday. I am not sure how long it will take to get the results but I will be finding that part out soon. I am just thrilled to be getting the tests finally done!! Well that is all for today.

Baby Dust to ALL!!!
