Hi everybody, I am planning on getting a DS, as soon as possible. My GP will be back in December. I'll be self paying and traveling abroad for it. I am hoping my GP will be co operative and will not refuse to order lab work and take care of follow up after surgery. If she's uncooperative, I'll have to start looking for a new GP. After my recent diabetes diagnosis, I'd really like to get things moving asap. A few questions for you and thanks in advance for your help 1) I am concerned if the BC healthcare plan will pay for my lab work post DS. Do you pay for your lab work or is it covered? What reason does your doctor write for the tests? 2) I was looking at the lab requisition for my recent blood tests, and it doesn't have the categories for tests DS'ers need. Does a separate lab do these tests or does the doctor just add these to the requisition sheet by hand? 3) Which vitamins do you purchase from amazon? Are there any you get from costco? Right now, I am only seeing the prices for the pre packaged vites on Vitalady's website. They're well over 400 dollars US for 3 months. Do you pay heavy import duties on these? I am hoping her regular bottles are cheaper and that they're still available. I want to get my first batch or two from Vitalady and then transition to ordering from Amazon, vitamin shoppe and costco. Thank you once again. Your help is deeply appreciated.
