I got a phone call at 5:30 on Christmas Eve from the surgery to tell me my VitD results had come back. Had to wait till 29th to get telephone consult! Anyway, spoke to a different GP then who said "Oh, your Vit D is a bit low." Me, "What exactly are the results?" "23". "And what is the range?" "Well the low range is (25 - 50), so it's just a wee bit low". !!! Flabbergasted.
She has also, apparently, looked at the rest of the results I previously received and says she would like to do more blood tests to check if anything else might be going on..........
So on 13th I will be getting tested for Kidney Function (repeat following CKD stage3), and now
Parathyroid and Calcium.
Until then she does not want me to start any new meds as she does not want to skew any results. So I cannot start taking Iron or B12.
I would have posted this earlier but I have been ill with a really bad dose of flu. Hardly surprising given my blood results. I am getting over it now, but I am completely wiped out.
Anyway, does anybody have any ideas why this GP wants Parathyroid and Calcium?
