Thanks very much, Poopydoop, for that interesting info.!!!! Really enlightening!!!! It's annoying when doctors expect us to follow through with tests though they don't have or take time to explain what is being assessed and why it's relevant to our health condition. Glad you can get more detailed communication from your doc, and could share it here. / Old Hat (40+ yrs with left-sided UC; in remission taking Colazal)
When Dr. S writes a script
he does it for a few dozen different bloodwork tests. He never explains them to me unless they are off and he is concerned about
them. Sometimes I ask for certain tests like b-12 or testosterone levels if I feel extra tired.
