Earlier today I was looking at the Diagnostic Codes listed on my Lab work paper for tomorrow. I will be going in to get my "Grab & Jab" which will lead to the "hit and miss." Anyways, I saw these diagnostic codes and wondered what they were.
Thank goodness that Google is my friend
780.79 = Other Malaise & Fatigue.
625.4 = Premenstrual tension syndromes
280.0 = Iron deficiency anemia secondary to blood loss (chronic)
288.0 = Agranulocytosis
According to Medline Plus, "Agranulocytosis means a failure of the bone marrow to make enough white blood cells (neutrophils). Bone marrow is the soft tissue inside bones that helps form blood cells."
Medlineplus also says, "Agranulocytosis results in a person not having enough of a specific type of white blood cells, called neutrophils or granulocytes. A low neutrophil count (neutropenia) may also occur when white blood cells are destroyed faster than they can be produced."
People with this condition are more likely to get infections. So in order to insure that Lyme doesn't rear it's ugly head (since it IS a bacterial infection), we have to keep a check on my blood cells. I've had a problem with my cell counts in the past so my LLMD likes to keep a check on them. This is also something that the LDN should have helped.
Cross your fingers that the Grab & Jab goes well.
