I have been waiting to do this post since ages. Chronic Fatigue is a lifestyle disease of this age. I too am suffering from the same since two years! The irregular office timings, easily available fast food options, lack of time to take care of health, everything culminates into a poor diet and weak body. People hardly have time to go for even a blood test or doctor’s consultation.
Similar thing has been happening to my other half. He had some severe stomach ache for which we had to consult a doctor. She asked him to get some blood tests done. We did everything required but the major issue came when he had to go and give his blood sample after breaking his fast and collecting the reports. Either we would forget or some or the other work would come. It took us two months to just collect those reports and, for the record, the clinic is just 2-3 kms away.
The same scenario is repeating again. I have to get my blood tests done but I am a certified injection screecher and a horrible one at that!! I used to shout when getting pricked for haemoglobin testing. Blood test was a huge step for me. Now, I am used to it but still I like to have someone with me. But, Mr. P hardly has time on weekdays and on weekends we promptly forget our health needs! This when I recalled how Thyrocare had come to our aid a few years back.
Two years back, my father-in-law had booked the appointment for the blood tests collection at our home and the person in charge had promptly arrived a convenient half hour before we all started for work. Thankfully, he was very skilled at taking the blood so it was not much of a hassle. He took all our samples and our reports arrived in two days. We had probably taken one of the Thyrocare Arogyam packages which involves all the major tests. I should do the same this time as well to know the root cause of my chronic fatigue.
Coming back to the real reason behind Chronic Fatigue, any doctor would ask you for a few standard blood tests which you can even get done regularly to just keep an eye on your vitamin and other levels. The doctors I have visited in the past two years have all been saying one thing. There is a marked vitamin deficiency in people around 25-35 which is causing their health issues. So, which blood tests can you done even without wasting your fee on doctor’s consultation.
