Chronic hgb in the 3.5-4.0 range. Dying of metastatic probably rectal dancer, survived almost a year.
a1c 16.9, very alive and one of my best-behaved diabetics now.
TSH 490. Manic but definitely alive
a1c's of 15, systolic BPs in the 200s, and trigs of 3000 sadly become very mundane very quickly in community practice. It's amazing how resilient the human body can be.
