3 month vitamin blood test



Recommended Posts

So i had my 3 month blood test for Vitamins and such. I got the results early this morning and everything is in the green. Only small issue is my Iron saturation is just 1 point below normal. But iron total levels are good. Other than that every other Vitamin, Protein, Calcium ect... are good. I thought this blood test would have had my cholesterol checked as well because it was high before surgery but i guess not. I will go ahead and order my own cholesterol test here next week to see how it is.

This is good news! Congrats!

I think my clinic holds off on cholesterol tests until the one year follow up. I read that a lot of patients cholesterol tends to rise after surgery due to cholesterol being stored in fat, so as your body purges fat during weight loss, so it's expected that it can rise for some months, I'm not exactly sure how long until you settle in to your "real" actual cholesterol level.

^^ that could be true. I know it's true for liver enzymes - it's pretty common for them to become pretty elevated that first year, because rapid weight loss is hard on livers. They eventually normalize, though.

Congratulations on your good reports. I have to say that I didn’t realize you are male until recently. I had to laugh at myself for assuming.

I think you and I were on here about a month before I realized you were a male LOL.

I go for my 3 month labs in the next few days. I hope all goes well for me like yours but Im a bit weary.

Congrats on your good numbers tho :)
