So I have my first real Doctor appointment in a long time. I haven't had a regular doctor since mine passed away when I was in college (7 years ago). I am trying to establish a new PCP and basically get a physical, and maybe get blood work done. The doctor I am going to see is a doctor of Internal Medicine with a focus of Preventative Medicine.
The lady who took my appointment asked me if I take any Rx's.. no. She said they will want me to bring in any supplements I take in the original containers for them to look at. I obviously am not carrying in a box of supplements, but it made me wonder...
Do you disclose?
I am not a supplement whore really (ok, kind of). I mainly take a multi (but instead of 3 pills with random RDA's, I take each vitamin separately [IE, 1g Vit C, B-50 Complex, Vit D, etc], minerals, digestive enzymes, probiotics, fish oil, borage oil, coq10, ala.
I also drink MD Muscle Growth. I use PeriWorkout, etc.
I am definitely not bringing all of these containers in. But I would list them all or print their labels.
So back to my question.. do you disclose to your Dr and how much?
