Been a while since I updated my status wrt MM.
Got the CBP , LFT and RFT tests done a couple of days ago.
All renal parameters are fine. Potassium , Glucose , TLC are also within normal ranges.
ESR : 51 ( This is expected , 0-20 is the normal range)
Hb : 10.6 (was 11 in November 2017 )
Globulin Serum : 4.0 (increased from 3.8 in November, normal values are between 1.8 and 3.6 )
This is a cause of concern.
Spoke to my Ayurvedic Doctor who felt there is nothing to be worried about. However I am not comfortable and asked him if I can increase the dosage to 3 capsules three times a day. He actually wants to reduce my dosage if possible. But I am not yet comfortable reducing the dosage right now.
I have been observing a little dip in my energy levels and was also feeling cranky during the last one month.
I had been taking 3 caps of Curcumin for almost 2 and half years since May 2015. All was well during this period and hence a few months back I was put on Turmeric. But the tests in November 2017 revealed that Globulin Serum increased to 3.8 . I was back on Curcumin 500mg 2 Capsules three times a day in December 2017. With the latest reports I feel the dosage of Curcumin has to be further increased .
Glad he agreed and I am back to my original dosage of 3 capsules of Curcumin 500mg three times a day. I will continue to take Ashwagandha , Tinospora Cordifolia , Satavari along with Curcumin . I am hopefull that my counts will jump back to normal very soon.
I shared the reports of my results with a confidante at work. She knows a lot about me and my style of working and feels that I have been exerting myself at work and it is better that I slow down a bit 🙂 . Will do something about this .
In my next set of tests after a month I will be including tests for Vit D , B12 , Uric acid and Calcium levels.
That’s all for now.
Time to take loong deeep breaths and relax :))
