I am going to the doctor for the first time in 10+ years. I finally have insurance, and need them to fill out a qualification form.
The form requires:
BMI, Height, Weight, Blood Pressure, LDL, HDL, Total Cholesterol, Triglyceride, FBS, and A1C.
Plus having the standard physical.
I have been paleo for about a year. And feel healthier than ever before, I supplement with D3 and Fish Oil. Is there anything I else I should request from my doctor? Specific to bloodwork, etc? Secondly how many of you inform your doctors of your paleo diet?

If I were going for the first time, I would ask for
T3, T4, Rev T3, and TSH... all to see how my thyroid is doing. Probably ask for HS CRP also. Also, yeah the vit D check is good, and I would also ask for an Omega 3/6 ratio. That number could be VERY useful for your diet planning.
Yeah... I told my family doc about Paleo. She thought I was nuts, and told me to use Weight Watchers. shrugs That ain't gonna happen LOL.
