had blood tests last week along with sample and after trouble getting the tests done i only found out today the bloods had gone walk about so only have to go through the whole thing again.

reasons is that doctors think diabetes could be causing high urine output but at the same time i did have a bad prostate infection and the gland infection could also be the course along with BP.

finding the cause could be tricky to say the least.

the problem with blood tests is that they struggle to get bloods so here we go again.

one thing urine sample was showing some bugs so they are also looking at that and of course another sample is needed.

think this is going to be a barrel of fun.

Damn it, and it's nearly an arm full! :( Mum had a few vials taken yesterday, I had to go in the other room. Hope it all goes smoothly next time.

Sorry to hear your samples got lost and you need more taken. If they have difficulty getting it, maybe have a glass of water before you go to give the samples. Hope they manage to find the cause of your problems and it is easy to treat.
Nurses love me because I'm like a tap.... just so easy to get blood samples. It probably helps that I usually have a brisk walk along to the surgery so the blood is circulating well when I get there.

i seem to be just so mean giving blood, seems the first sign of a needle and yep it disappears.

told one nurse must be something there or my arms would drop off :)

still struggled to give blood and don't think there may be enough for the glucose and hba1c will wait and see.
