My doctor has this cool patient portal where you can review your past or current lab results as well as download them or reply with comments to the doctor. They also provide the doctor’s feedback on the results and any actions needed. Today I received some of my results from the various needle sticks I have had the last few weeks. Iron is low, take a supplement, VitD is low, take a supplement, Ferritin is low, take a supplement, VitB and Metabolic Panel looks good overall. We are still waiting on Zinc and another panel to check for infection since my levels were elevated due to the flu I had recently, or at least we think that is the cause. It is amazing how immune you become to having blood drawn…”sure, stick me again and draw some blood.” But all in all, it is for a good reason and I am not complaining at all, but at this point, I think I could draw my own blood having watched it so many times over this last year.
