For so many years, I have ignored so many little things about my health because I did not want to go to a Dr. and discuss the "Elephant" in the room. (MY WEIGHT)....I was also afraid what any test results would show. However, in January I bit the bullet and with my husband by my side, we visited a doctor. She was amazing! She immediately knew I had some signs of PCOS and placed me on Metformin.
She also ordered full bloodwork which made me a nervous wreck, but hubby escorted me to the LAB. Those results were better than expected with most everything normal except slightly elevated liver enzymes and insulin levels.
Fast Forward 3 months to my dr. checkup and updated bloodwork. This time...with a 26 pound weightloss in 3 months, my liver enzymes were down in normal ranges and so were my insulin levels.
What a relief to find a dr. that I can talk to and that is honest, but compassionate and genuine in her approach. She told me on day one that her ONLY goal for me was good health. She is not interested in the past, but in what we need to do from this day forward. She was so proud of my weightloss and test results that it made all the difference. I am so glad I found her and so glad I finally went..it is a relief just knowing that I didn't wait too long and have an entirely different outcome!!!!
Find a dr. you like and don't be afraid....that's my advice!!
