"I've had to do the 24-hour urine collection four or five times for my adrenal issues. While it is kind of inconvenient, it's not really that bad -- I just rented some movies, read a good book, did some projects around the house and stayed…"

I recently switched endos due to lack of communication and negativity of my last doctor. After meeting with new doctor last Tuesday they called and told me to make an appointment with a nephrologist because my microalbumin test came back so high (1400 is the ratio). After freaking out at first I went online to do some research and found that the test should not be done when a…See More
