When I posted the other day, several responses related to cholesterol. That would be LDL - the bad cholestero that should be under 100. LDH can relate to tissue damage, heart, kidneys and liver. The lab tech called me back yesterday and said the doctor said it was "OK." I'm thinking - 70 points higher than beginning of December does not sound "OK" to me. She then said the doctor ha dnot even been IN yesterday....I'm thinking he didn't even SEE the lab report. My PCP's nurse did as did my PCP. It appears I need another opinion. Fatiguye and lack of energy seems to be the norm for me nowadays. I am playing tennis still, but can't hit as hard and I tire easily. I will call my Primary today and see if and where he wants me to go next. My other suggestion to the lab tech, that appeared to be "protecting" her territory is to repeat the labs in 2 weeks. If they are still on an upward road - should I not try and find out why?? They are making me feel like an annoyance - I am trying to protect myself from a total collapse. The SLE and the ITP is enough to deal with -- what am I dealing with now????
