Customer Question
I have several diseases/syndromes/medical complications...
I have several diseases/syndromes/medical complications, as a result over the years I have become accustom to my own personal tracking, from heartrate/bp- to surgical and invasive treatments and everything in between. I have several specialists that I am currently seeing. Heres the thing-I dont really know if I am tracking the right stuff, or checking sufficiently to satisfy what they are looking for. Is there a general "rule of thumb" that provides guidelines? What/how often do they want to see? Anything out of the ordinary would produce and obscene amount of information, in line with I would assume, doesn't matter/apply to them. I dont hate doctors...okay, perhaps I feel bullied/intimidated, I dont hate them, I just hate talking to them :) from time to time, but arriving with documentation and substantial history of any illness has me cruising through appointments on an intellectual level instead of an emotional one, and every one wins.

Hello from JustAnswer.

There is no general rule of thumb of what should be tracked or how often it should be tracked, as it would vary according to which disease or conditions are present and the severity of each condition. Since it would vary according to each individual, your doctor will instruct you on what should be tracked and how often it should be monitored.

Please let me know if I can provide any clarification.

What Customers are Saying:

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
