Laboratory Testing on Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year!

I am yet to go to my physician but I thought of going to the laboratory first to get my blood testing done. At least the doctor will have something to work on. I am not sure if I have diseases or something, God forbid, but well it has been awhile since I have seen my OB-Gyne and I am long overdue for a pap smear–3+ years!).

Not sure what to have, I got two blood test packages that included the following at the Medical Plaza laboratory here in Bacolod City:

1. Heart Panel Package: FBS, Na, K, Creatinine, SGPT, Cholesterol, LDL, HDL, Urinalysis.

2. Thyroid Panel Package: TSH, T3, T4.

The two packages cost me more than P2,400, but well, it has been years since I had been to the doctor and had my blood checked. I guess I was traumatized during pregnancy and childbirth.

Anyway, I am off to my OB-Gyne by lunchtime. Depending on my blood works, I may have to go to another doctor. But I am hoping that I won’t have to and to take medication. Maybe I will just need to go on a diet.
