I was due for my bi-yearly laboratory works such as FBS, HDL, LDL and what-have-you. It was also time for an ECG and carotid doppler tests. I needed to see a doctor for the request so I can charge the procedures to my HMO. I hate these tests! However, they are necessary so I comply. I was troubled though as my doctor added another test in my list. It was a test for TSH or thyroid stimulating hormone! Hmmm.... my doctor noticed that my neck is quite "fat" and thought that I could have a Thyroid imbalance. Thank God my lab tests are all fine.
