    I see pcp on Thursday. I want him to add more blood tests. Trying to be prepared. He thought he ordered too much last time.
    Have recorded results from 2017 and 2018. I do think he’ll see me and order the labs every 6 months. I don’t want to change any supplements until I get my new results.
    I’m hoping I can keep on top of things. I’m 10 years out. I’ve been on Vitalady’s beginner’s regimen since my surgery!!

    You have to be aggressive. IF you have to, remind him you are the customer. And it isn't coming out of his pocket to order appropriate labs for a DS. There is a copy of a generic DS lab order here. You could also grab Dr. Rabkin's order (same thread as the generic one).

    I saw a new PCP last week. ONLY one he questioned was the c-reactive protein and I had no good reason. So I let that one pass.

    If they use EPIC software, see if there is already a bariatric panel built. If so, compare to the list here for DS, add whats missing.

    You gotta fight.

    I specifically asked about the Bariatric panel cause my new PCP uses MyChart by Epic. Unfortunately, he couldn't find one. He had to do it the hard way.

    That sucks. But from now on, it should be one click.
