When I went through my initial psych consult, Mickey asked me if I had any health problems. I told her other than the weight, I was healthy as a horse. She looked at me and said "No, you're morbidly obese, you aren't healthy."
Well, ok, like I said, besides the weight I am healthy....
So today I went for the follow up with Nicole. She had ordered the echo and labs back on July 2nd. I have to admit I was REALLY nervous about it all. I had never had my thyroid tested, never had a cholesterol screen, etc.
Wanna know my numbers?
OMG are you serious?? I know people on cholesterol meds whose numbers aren't that good! You've got to be kidding me??
Fasting glucose was 85
thyroid was normal, sodium a little high but Nicole said that was probably due to the huge amounts of water I'm drinking.
My echo was perfectly normal, no issues.
So yeah, like I said, other than being morbidly obese, I'm healthy as a horse!
