Second Visit to Doctor

I went to see my doctor today, hoping to get my blood test results. Unfortunately, the Growth Factor (IGF1) result hasn’t come back yet.

While I was there, my doctor found that my cholesterol is getting high (HDL 1.6 mmol/L, LDL 4.2 mmol/L). He suggested I perhaps reduce the number of fatty meals. He was very good about it, saying it was a bit of a case of “Do as I say, not do as I do”, with a big smile.

Anyhow he took a bit of blood while I was there (quite painless really) to check for calcium levels or something (I can only assume that is something to do with bone growth in acromegaly?).

Anyhow, a bit more waiting.
