Disclaimer: I am not a doctor or any other medical provider.
If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to get healthier in 2018, I’ve got you covered: I’ll be offering daily challenges to help you improve your health next year. But first, you’ll need to get a full check-up. Ask some questions: Are you healthy enough to exercise? How much exercise should you aim for? What should your diet look like? Do you need to lose or gain weight? (Note: I have the greatest endocrinologist who answers these questions at every visit. Everyone should have a doctor like her!)
So call today and set an appointment before the new year begins.
What I Did
I met with my endocrinologist instead of my primary care physician earlier this month. She always tells me everything I need to know!
Call your doctor’s office and make an appointment for a full check-up at a convenient time for you. Then make a list of questions you want to ask. For example, do you need blood work done? I didn’t have blood work done for years until I lost an unborn child to Hashimoto’s thyroidism because of a couple of really bad medical providers. Be proactive! Ask questions! You really are your best advocate.
