So I am 2yrs out from my quad by-pass and suddenly after a bout of a virus followed by a nasty bacteria infection which took 3 different antibiotics to kill, I got heart palpitations.

Sitting here filling out what blood work I want to do so far I got:

Liver function
Kidney function
Electrolytes, Ca, Na, K, Mg, P, CO2
Vit-D
B-12, Folate
C-reactive Protein
Thyroid, TSH, free and total T3, T4
NMR LipoProtein test (chl)
Testosterone free and total

I would like to see if I got anything imbalanced before I make the trip to the cardio guy. I can't think of anything else, any ideas?

Off-topic for diabetes, but ... PSA?

I think that is a very good list! Are you able to just hand that to your doc and he'll request the labs or do you go through one of those blood work websites?

My doc gave me a signed lab sheet, its been sitting here for a while, so I thought I would take advantage of it.

Wow, I want one of those!!! :D I have to beg for each test.

I hope the palpitations turn out to be nothing terrible. Are you still taking GABA? I thought you mentioned on another thread that it can cause palpitations? Or maybe I am mixing everything up in my head... :) I am sure you would have tried ruling that out already.

I stopped the GABA for a while. It wasn't causing the palpitations just making them more noticeable

The deed is done, I added DHEA at the last minute in the office before I handed her the lab sheet.

I'm crossing my fingers for you. Hopefully they find something minor and easily fixable! Let us know what the results are when you get them back.
