Looks Like I'm Going To Live

Just got back from seeing my primary care physician at the VA.

I'm pushing the upper limit of 'good' on several things, but nothing is over.

The only scary thing is a critical vitamin D deficiency.  This is despite eating more of the foods with it and getting more outdoors time.  The doctor says this is very rare for pasty white boys.  Getting a huge supplement for that to see if it helps.  If it don't... dunno.

The B12 deficiency has been corrected with a multi-vitamin.  We're happy to see that.

Diet and exercise didn't move my weight even an ounce.  But we're really just starting on the exercise thing again.

I renewed my complaints that my legs fucking hurt and that it affects my mobility.  I declined gabapentin again.

Getting new orthotic inserts too!

  1. From WebMD: "If you shun the sun, suffer from milk allergies, or adhere to a strict vegan diet, you may be at risk for vitamin D deficiency. Known as the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D is produced by the body in response to skin being exposed to sunlight. It is also occurs naturally in a few foods -- including some fish, fish liver oils, and egg yolks -- and in fortified dairy and grain products."

    So you are a lactose-intolerant vegan that lives in a basement. LOL

    1. Basement? I live in Florida!

      The disturbing thing is I've added vitamin D rich foods to my diet and have been getting more sun.

  2. I was also detected with Vitamin D deficiency. The doc told me to get more sun and I reminded him about my previous bout with skin cancer...

    Lots of vitamin D
