CBC and Supplements… what not to take….

My aha moment came this morning… been going over the conversation with the doctor this week, yea, I remember it, almost verbetum… so this memory thing is spooking me… anyhow….

I take Bioastin… it’s a Hawaiian supplement they discovered and we have been on it for over a year… and this had stuff in it, along with other supplements I take that interfer with a CBC….

I remember a sign at one of the labs, if you take Biotin or B vitamins… it will impact thyroid tests and other blood work….. AHA…..

I take a couple thousand units or MG of B, C, D, A, BioAstin, Multi, Krill, CoQ10, Folic acid, B12, Super B complex… think that is all of them an half of these interfer with blood work…these are all taken because of the beatings I recieved as a child… it is all for the Autonomic and Peripherial neuropathy….

The reality of my blood work, it was awesome…..

My cholesterol for me, was good… both Ldl & Hdl….. my blood sugar, white count, everything, but the one level on the thyroid and it struck the doctor and I both odd, and I was in PTSD motor mouth mode, so, wasn’t going to get the answer in the office… it just took me a couple days to figure it out…. tadah…………..

I will request a checkup in November and get blood done again, with full CBC and that time I will skip my supplements for 24 hours per the literature on blood testing at the lab……

Eyesight… still got some glob behind my new lens and he’ll take care of that with a laser in his office…. next week last post op and it’s my pre-op for the next eye surgery… still freaked over seeing him remove my lens in my right eye… plan to tell cutie gas passer, just a touch more… I want to sleep thru this one…

Headaches, just the usual tension ones and the ones I have always had, from the areas of my skull that received impact….

Diet… eating is a struggle… if I am careful, I do okay, the bone is not as painful as it was for the last few years… but it’s sore, because of the partial… maxillary and mandible…

but graves on Kauai is more important than taking care of a living veteran….. triple sigh……………………………….

Hot an muggy, we went for our walk and were drenched and it’s not 8AM…. house closed, AC on, we slept thru the roosters…. this AC will freeze you out… I finally realized I had the setting on economy and changed it to regular, now I have to grab a throw to put over my legs in the living room… rest of house is comfortable during the day, not cold, but at night…. you are under a blankie…..go figure I sabotaged us on selling…. helps to see the green lights on the unit…. lol…..but that electric bill will push $400, I am betting, so a surprise would be nice if less….

We are getting so much rain, now fall has started and for us that means, late October before we cool down…. and everything is growing so fast, Mike is cutting grass for the 3rd time this week….. this I will miss, watching nature at it’s best…. though we saw 6 road kills yesterday… all but 1 was a wild goat… where are you going to go on an island that a few minutes slower drive matters???

Day started, much to do, before it gets to hot to do it…. rain expected, and my attitude to keep working on….

grave yard versus health care… Sen Shatz, you really disappoint this veteran….
