Routine visit to GP to get pred prescription renewed. Asked about getting more info from the bone scan as I don't even have the T score. Told that the doctor's office does not get this part of the report, I will have to go to the hospital where procedure was done to get the info. Can you believe it! Not inconvenient for me as I walk past that building nearly every day, but still. Second thing, apparently she had not yet requested an appointment for me with the osteoporosis specialist and after a discussion where I once again refused the medications for OP she said there probably was no point referring me to the specialist. She was encouraging about my use of weighted walking vest and we also discussed my iron level which is down even more since last test in June. She recommended going to a health food store and asking for a liquid iron supplement, which I've done, and that unexpected recommendation cancelled out my disappointment that she is so gungho about my taking OP meds. She was dismissive of my concerns about diabetes as a pred side effect and worries about simple carbs.
