Customer Question
I don't know the...

I don't know the exact figures of my DUN (?) and Creatin9 blood tests by my surgeon suggested that my kidneys may be insufficiently functioning to handle a contrast MRI-what should I know?

Doctor's Assistant: Is this a time sensitive issue? What type of specimen are they testing?

Just 2 vials of blood-not sure of question

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

He knows I have Diabetes II, a recent history of a epidural abcess/sepsis episode-he mentioned it so casually from out of nowhere that I'm a little perturbed

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.

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.
