I'm going to have the following blood work done:
- CBC (Complete Blood Count) with differential
- BMP (Basic Metabolic Panel)
- Liver Function Panel
I also wanted this done because it's been at least a year since my last test. I am very curious to see where my WBC are (higher or lower). They were always low for me. Off the top of my head I can't remember the number, but well below what even the lab recommends. My Eosinophils were always VERY HIGH. Most people say it is from allergies and even though I insisted I didn't have allergies they just shrugged it off like nothing. I often wonder if this was a warning sign for alopecia and the development of the autoimmune disease. No one was really ever concerned about it though. "Oh you are young, don't worry about it". That's what EVERYONE always said. Now look where I am at.
I took a new picture of the other spot on my head. This one looks so much better than before. For comparison this is a picture from mid September, so only about 5 weeks ago. There is no hair growth whatsoever on the spot. This was BEFORE I started to chelate with Dr. Cutler's protocol. I do believe I had been using EDTA though.
I just took this picture a few minutes ago. From the time of the last picture above, I have done a full 8 rounds of frequent-dose oral DMSA chelation. Coincidence? I think not.If it continues to grow how it's been, I think this spot will be completely covered over in 2 months! WOOHOO!
