No Six Month Day Curve

I went into hospital today thinking that I’d be in for the day to have a “Day Curve” and an modified Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (for Growth Hormone). It’s almost exactly six months since my operation. I’d got a book to read, my MP3 player ready, and I’d fasted overnight.

It turned out that it was only an appointment for a catch-up with one of the doctors there. I didn’t learn anything new that I hadn’t already been told, and I’m not sure if I had any news either.

Silly me. They took a sample of blood anyhow, so from that they’ll be able to get my IGF-1 level.

I was told I should exercise more, and lose weight. Excellent advice, and one I will endeavour to heed.
