My HbA1c was 7.1. This is a measure of how well controlled my diabetes has been. While a little high, the physician thought the result was reasonable, given my age and the amount of time I have had diabetes.
Some other tests were
Cholesterol 2.3 mmoll/L (desired range 3.6 – 7.3)
Triglycerides 1.9 mmol/L (desired result < 1.5)
HDL 0.47 mmol/L (desired result <1.00)
LDL 0.89 mmol/L (desired result > 2.0)
The only result of concern was my serum vitamin B12 which was 92 mmol/L. The normal range is 162 – 811. This is a side effect of long term taking of metaformin, a diabetic drug, I use. I was given a vitamin B injection and I will require regular injections of this vitamin. I guess I can arrange this at Chiang Mai Ram hospital.
My iron studies show some anemia and the physician said I should resume taking iron tablets.
Next Friday I see the cardioogist who no doubt will do an echo- cardiogram.
The dentist check up found no cavities.
