Years ago, my first endocrinologist checked my full labs at every visit. We're talking every three months, four times a year. It never occurred to me that this might be a bad thing. In fact, I thought it was necessary because I was diabetic, and surprised when I switched endos and my new doctor only checked once a year. Ish.
Turns out now that there are studies that say that obsessing over your health can actually make you sicker.
Tracking Your Own Health Data Too Closely Can Make You Sick
I know this is aimed at healthy people, but I think it applies to diabetics, too. The more often you run tests on yourself to verify that you're still healthy, the more likely you're going to get a false result. And false results can mean more tests, which could be potentially harmful.
I'd also add that stressing over your health to this degree can have a negative impact on your health. By focusing on it that much, you could actually be making it worse.
My first doctor, I should add, saw a little blip in my thyroid values and told me -- based on one blood test, the first he ever took from me -- that I was becoming hypothyroid. It turned out to be incorrect, but I could have ended up on drugs unnecessarily.
Moral of the story: Don't stress about your health. It doesn't pay to be a hypochondriac.
