Bailey's Lab History (for me and you)
« on: September 12, 2006, 06:33:34 PM »
Well, here's my lab history.  There are a couple missing, but this is a pretty complete record.   I'm posting this not only for others to view but so I have a comprehensive record of my labs.   I expect to get copies of all my labs in a few days to fully update the missing labs.

I think EVERYONE should ask for copies of ALL labs they get done and keep their OWN medical file.   I've been pretty good about it, but some labs have been lost or destroyed accidentally.

This is especially important if you move or relocate to other doctors, especially if you relationship with your own doctor has soured for whatever reason.

Always keep a record of your own labs.. most doctors will provide them free when they are taken but may charge afterwards... i guess it really depends on your doc... the most important thing is that if you have questions, people will want to know your exact numbers to give you good advice.

Frankly, I suggest that you either use the 'track your labs' feature on this website or create a thread like this to track them especially if there is a fire or hurricane or whatever and you lose your written copies.   I've listed all my available labs for the most pertinent numbers and any abnormalities and I'd recommend everyone do so as well in their own thread.   At least it will be a permanently accessible record of your stats.

Hello Bailey, it is Eldon.

Your numbers are looking fabulous! You VL is almost undetectable and this is a good thing. Also, I do appreciate the advice you have given as far as keeping a "virtual" record online in case something happens to your hard copies.

Have the BEST Day!
