bede0713 Posted August 27, 2014 Share Posted August 27, 2014 So about 3 days into my first Whole 30 (I'm on day 9 of my second) I had a physical with my general doctor. My cholesterol was up (260 total) and my blood pressure was high (130/100 I believe - I don't have it written down in front of me). I also told her about my UC diagnosis (hadn't been back to her since I had it) and let her know that I had just started a Whole 30. Her response was annoying at best and condescending (but I've really liked her in the past so I shook it off as a bad day for her). She said "well you go ahead and play with your food for awhile and when you're done call me and I'll write you a prescription for the blood pressure, cholesterol and get you on UC meds". So fast forward to this morning. I called to set up another appt to do a blood pressure check and get blood work done again - just to see how things have changed or improved if it at all over the past 30+ days. I just got a call back from my doctor that she won't authorize additional blood work unless I agree to start meds for the blood pressure, cholesterol and UC. What? I told her my UC symptoms have been virtually non-existent and the other two, who knows?? I'm so frustrated right now. Searching for a functional medical doc - does everyone thing that's the best route to go or just another general doc? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
