You might say, it’s one of those days.

Yes, it is.

This morning I went back to the Medical  City to have those laboratory tests done.   Last week, my doctor told me to have a uric acid test done since I was complaining about my aching knees. He included fasting blood sugar (FBS) as routine check  since I have maintenance medicines for my sugar. Although it was normal the previous testing, my doctor wanted to be sure it still is.

I asked the medical technologist early this morning what the Vitamin D deficiency  test was for, he told me that there are occasional instances where they request such. I must admit I am a bit paranoid when it comes to my health. In Tagalog, they call it “praning”.  So that was done too. Unfortunately, it would take a few days before I get the results so I have to go back again sometime next week, at the same time see my doctor.

Mr. Google is so helpful. I searched the effect of a high BUN.  I looked up why I need that Vitamin D deficiency test. I was diagnosed with osteoporosis more than twenty years  ago, before I had my hysterectomy.  The big problem is, I  don’t drink milk and Mom told me I never had it  even when I was a baby. I was breastfed all along. Until now, I don’t like the taste and smell of milk. I don’t like some ice cream flavors, I don’t like milky candies. Maybe that is why, my bones are weak and brittle.

Actually, I hate going and visiting a doctor. I have so many  maintenance medicines that I’m afraid my kidneys would fail because of it. But when you’re getting old, your health slowly deteriorates too.
