Well it was a beautiful day in Sydney to visit the Immunologist Professor McCool. Good news on most fronts with several nasty conditions being ruled out. Prediabetes was confirmed with findings of both high glucose and high insulin so dietary changes are in the cards for Displaced. Hashimoto's reconfirmed (but with lower levels of antibodies which is interesting). I also tested positive for Gastric Parietal Antibodies which can be associated with atrophic gastritis and with a B 12 deficiency (but my B 12 levels were ok). (I thought there were only two Bananas in Pajamas, B1 and B2, -- who the hell knew they were up to twelve!!!)
Unfortunately the radiographers had not yet made the MRI report available but Cool McCool had a glance through the hard copies of the scans and said he couldn't see anything that wasn't meant to be there. The thing in my brain that looked like a bobby pin was pronounced to be a flaw in the film not a miracle worthy of a Lifetime movie.
Off I staggered to the pathology department to have more bloods taken, only seven vials this time, among the things that are being tested for is Myasthenia Gravis (an auto immune condition meaning muscle weakness) and heaven only knows what else he is looking for.
I'm feeling ok about the results except for the prediabetes. The best thing I can do for that is to exercise more but my muscles are so badly reactive to exercise at the moment I don't know how I am going to do that. I got a pretty severe lecture from The Horsewoman about starting to change my diet and my activity level. I'm still experiencing muscle weakness and pain on use from my activity on Friday night. My arms are still super sore. Otherwise a pretty good day!
