    Doctor Recall

    Primal Fuel
    Hi PBrs,

    I had some bloods done the other day, and today the doctors
    office has called me back in. Now my head is spinning, what
    could be wrong? there is nothing wrong with me, probably
    something stupid, but my head want stop thinking now.

    Also can I ask for a print out of my test results so I can let
    you guy's let me know what they actually mean, I have seen
    others put there's up, but I don't understand them.

    Talk soon
    couchie

    Yes, you have a legal right to your medical files and test results. It's a good idea to get a copy of all test results.

    What tests did they run?

    In Australia we have no legal right to our medical records. We do have the right to change GP. I've never had any problem getting my GP to give me test results

    Yeah, they have the right to pay for them, through insurance or not, right?

    Sorry, had it wrong. There is a right to access, with some restrictions http://www.privacy.gov.au/faq/health/q5 May have to pay to get copies though.

    couchie, how'd you go?

    Just commenting so I can find this post later. I'm curious, as my doctor recently "freaked out" when I got my VAP results.

    I'd suggest reading Griff's cholesterol primer before you go, as it sounds like there's a good chance they're going to freak out over numbers that may actually be of no concern at all.

    Ha, Barbeygirl,

    I wish I had of seen your post before I went this morning,
    because that is what has happened, I have high cholestrol, 210.
    I have just finished reading Griff's post, so I feel better.
    That number is all I now, couldn't get any other results, sucks.
    So he has told me to diet and exercise to lose weight, no der!
