Health Report

I had my blood test done last Thursday and the nurse told me that it should be ready in 3 days. So last Sunday, I dropped by the clinic and asked if my report had arrived. Not yet so I tried again yesterday afternoon after fetching my girl back from school. It was 2 pm and there were not many patients at that time. I was number three. Waiting for my turn and I saw the same doctor.

I was just keen to know about my report but he asked about my trigger thumb. So considerate of him! Well, I almost finished my medication and I felt much better. But according to him, there is still a slight swell. He told me the trigger thumb should heal in a few days time.

 
 Next, he opened up my report and started analysing and explaining to me. Such a conscientious doctor.

My haemoglobin is 15! Considered high. I used to be a little anemic. Guess my consumption of my Fitline Restorate with Iron helps.

My total cholesterol level is at borderline. He told me that no medication is needed but I need to cut down on seafood which is definitely my favorite.

My uric acid is also at borderline. I need to cut down on soya bean as according to the doctor, the skin of nuts/beans can cause uric acid. Mind you, I used to consume lots of soya beans and other beans too which are my favorite.

The rest of the results is good. He said, 'Overall Good'. I said, 'Thank God!'..

  7. Remember my father was admitted to Pantai a few months back. In order to control cholesterol, doctor advised that 1 week only can have 2 eggs. A month can only consume 6 large prawns, without the head. For fish, try not to eat the fish head.

  19. Congratulations, Wenn, for a clean bill of health.

    You know what? I attended a talk on cancer some years ago and the doctor who gave the talk emphasised that soya beans are not to be taken in excess. They cause the big C. I've also read an article from a lady who used to take soya products day in day out and ended up with continuous tumour problems. She later realised it and when she stopped taking it, her problems no longer surfaced.

    Soya products are also high in uric acid. That is why people with arthritis or rheumatism best to avoid them.

    My two cents.

    Btw, milk is also not a good product but that's for another time.

    Congrats again!
