John, I know you are in southern Cal, so you may be close by a place known as Loma Linda.  They live on a natural diet and they may be able to get you leveled out on your lifestyle changes.  I have no idea what they are, but it is an infamous medical complex.  I hope that this can be of some assistance.  My wife and I have used natural eating since 1975.  We decided to become vegetarians, but now that we are getting older, it may be time to make some more changes.  Ugh!  I will go to a place like Loma Linda to see what they recommend.  Liver, I used to love it until about 7th grade health when I learned what the liver does.  No more but I love the smell.

I hope the procedure is not too bad and they do not find anything major! Good Luck, you are in my prayers.

Thanks Chips, I have an appointment July 2nd to check in with my primary physician, review blood levels one more time, and make the call. Thanks guys, appreciate all the supportive feedback greatly, and the humor!:)

Thank you so much for the research on your end Gator! I greatly appreciate it, and yes, Loma Linda is a state of the art hospital with a wonderful reputation and about 35 minutes from us, I did not know they had a special dietary division for eating organic and such, that is great to know, and I am very interested, thanks so much!

:huh: So, I am confused now... is Loma Linda a good place or a bad place?  (At least I know it's a place:))

 

And when it comes to liver, beef liver, it was always tough - about like (I think) eating a leather belt.  I didn't mind the liver gravy so much.

Today I occasionally see it as the lunch special at the diner... I take a pass and get something else!

I think Gator mistyped Cal, infamous. It's a cutting edge hospital with a great reputation.

I apologize for the confusion.  Loma Linda popped into the national news in the early 1990's with a heart transplant from some homo sapien for a baby.  I think I remember the child being a girl.  Then I saw a commercial the other day about the place and where people there live longer than any place on earth.  That's the limit of my knowledge but I did some research that they emphasize natural diet and lifestyle.  I went to a place like it in Chattanooga, TN about 40 years ago.  It was called Wildwood something or other.  Anyway, it was good information and we made the adaption well.  Those who consume meat don't have as much trouble with vitamin B2 as your mileage grows.  Now, my wife and I both are prescribed, yes, prescribed vitamin B complex to get sufficient dosage.  At this age, often the body won't absorb it or doesn't make enough of it or something like that.  Yep, got in over my head without a vest.  Anyway, John, I hope you get treated well, get recovery and get on a road that will keep you healthy.  Blessings to you on this journey.

Off topic but since I mentioned Vitamin B, as you age you may need to take some.  Anyway, my wife was telling the doctor that she takes Excedrin Migraine tablets for the migraine headaches.  He told us that taking that would be less effective as time goes on.  The better solution is to take Vitamin B2, about 500 mg daily.  No another new part of the journey.  I now take it because of nerve damage to my feet.  If I were diabetic, I would ask my doctor if Vitamin B would help with feet neuropathy which is a common issue.

@John,

I've been having abnormal blood test results which my Primary Care has tried to address with OTC supplements which did not help.  He finally referred me to a Hematologist. Sometimes you need a specialist.  Probably different reasons why doctors are hesitant or reluctant to refer you along.

The Hematologist did blood tests that the Primary Care never did.....stuff I have never heard of. Hematologist said he would check out a bunch of things and a bone marrow tap would be the very last thing he would consider.
