VA medical

While the VA medical can be good,for some things,others like immune disorders,like arthritis,can be tuff.
So for past 10 about I had to order predisone from overseas,to control flareups.
My a1c reading in march showed me diabetes 2. I told the knuckle heads,probably due to predisone.They don't listen put me own metaformin, which makes telemeres longer,making you young again.
Well I forgot and thought I was taking diabetes drugs,but forgot it.
A1C is 5.5, no diabetes 2. So I take meds for teleomermes and weight loss

You secure prednisone overseas? Under prescription? Does the VA know this? Do you arrive at your doctor visits with a list of all the medications and dosages you currently take?

You have to be proactive about your health; don't assume that the Doctor who sees you at the VA remembers anything about your medical history that isn't on your chart...

I'd rather die at home in my own bed than walk into a VA clinic.

Some folks will go to unreasonable lengths to avoid a little exercise...

I signed up for the VA hospital in Atlanta a few years ago. When I learned about the extensive wait time to get an appointment, I just went back to my regular doctor. Have never been back to VA.

Our family doctor suddenly announced semi retirement yesterday. He claims he will stiil do some work at the hospital emergency department but his office is closed at the first of August. I believe and so do other people that he was an exceptional doctor.

Even when they were not his patients. He told me in the last year retirement was not in his plans. Unfortunatly health issues caught up to him. Medicine was really a calling for him. So time will tell if he stays retired. He is 62.

You can only wish a guy like this well. An exceptional human being besides a good doctor. This area was lucky to get him 38 years ago. He had a massive practice with over three thousand patients.

Thumbs up Some Good News !

A local V.A. Clinic opened in Arcadia, Ca. , abut damn time as America owes Veterans LIFETIME HEALTH CARE ~ so many Veterans suffer from medical maladies directly related to their service .

" I'd rather die at home in my own bed than walk into a VA clinic. "

So there is hope .
