I'm not really sure which forum I should post this under so if this is the wrong one please excuse me.
A little back ground info:
I just got out of the Navy. I am in the process of getting my new healthcare set up and have an appointment with my new doctor who I've NEVER MET OR EVEN SEEN BEFORE. She called and wanted me to get blood work done so she could evaluate it.
So I just got a phone call from her and she said she was concerned about some of my blood work, specifically my kidneys. She asked me if I have been taking protein and if I've been on any medications like motrin or IB profin lately and I said yes.
Then she asked what my height/weight were and I told her 5'11" and 210lbs. She said my kidneys are only operating at 75% because I am OVERWEIGHT. She said it is taxing on my kidneys because for my height I should weigh "170-180lbs MAX."
She told me to lose 10lbs by the time I have my appointment with her on the 10th of next month. I am in no way fat (my avatar was taken last week) and there is no way I'll ever be back down to 170lbs.
All my responses to her were "ok. ok. sounds good. see you then." I didnt want to get into any sort of debate with her but I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this before? Does anyone have any tips/advice on how to handle this when talking to a doctor?
I know a lot/most doctors dont know shit about weight training but I dont like the fact that she said my kidneys arent operating at 100%
Thanks in advance for any advice/comments
