Customer Question
I got my blood...

I got my blood drawn a week ago and I still have a large bruise in my forearm. It has not turned yellow or dark brown yet?

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

I have somewhat high blood pressure, not too bad. My liver function was up to 80 and then last month it was down to 50.

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

Fatty liver . Taking lisinopril and pravastatin. Although I haven't taken the statin in 1 month

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
