I'm in my home town right now. I went for a blood test this morning. My mother works at Pathlab, so that's where I went. The results will be available in 2 days, but the results for blood pressure and bone density are immediate.
I have wonderful blood pressure. The first reading was 110/66. Then we did the bone density test, and returned to do another reading for blood pressure, which came out at 108/68. These levels would indicate that my arteries are very unlikely to be clogged, so heart attacks and strokes are unlikely.
(But just to be certain, I am also being tested for C-reactive protein and methionine.)
The bone density test was done with an ultrasound machine. A bit of ultrasound gel was applied to my forearm, right above where one would wear a watch, and the handheld emitter was rubbed several times around part of the arm circumference. This was done until the machine has collected sufficient data points. The procedure was repeated three times.
The results are a disaster. My bone density is in osteopenia category, which is pretty close to osteoporosis. It may have to do with years of whey consumption. Excessive protein consumption is linked to low bone mineral density, because a by-product of protein digestion is an acid which dissolves bones. Maybe it's also due to the coffee habit -- caffein inhibits calcium absorption. Whatever the case, I need to do something about this. Also, I have to make sure I do not trip and fall, or play futsall (the dumbest game to achieve popular appeal).
