What does 3.5 or 4 really mean on an SLOF or LOF (Level of Functioning) test? What about pretty consistent 48-50 GAF (Global Assessment of Functioning)?

What does 3.5 or 4 really mean on an SLOF or LOF (Level of Functioning) test? What about pretty consistent 48-50 GAF (Global Assessment of Functioning)?

And I quote: GAF 41-50 Serious symptoms (e.g. suicidal ideation, severe obsessional rituals, frequent shoplifting) OR any serious impairment in social, occupational, or school functioning (e.g., no friends, unable to keep a job). -DSM. I am not privy to the LOF though. I encourage to discuss with your doc. Take care.

How to give myself a self assessment test to see if I have dementia?

How to give myself a self assessment test to see if I have dementia?

Self tests: There are several self tests inquiring about symptoms that might suggest early dementia. One of my favorites is called sage (from ohio state) and there are several versions. Usually your doctor can provide that, or other tests. Also visit the alzheimer's websites for options. In the long run as there can be many causes for cognitive problems, see your doctor; they can help or refer.

Why is it so difficult to get a venogram below the knee? D-dimer and US are not good enough considering I have PV. Self assessment 3 on Well's test

Why is it so difficult to get a venogram below the knee? D-dimer and US are not good enough considering I have PV. Self assessment 3 on Well's test

Skill, risk and time: Venogram is an effective way to evaluate the veins of the leg especially to look for blood clots. Unfortunately we do these tests less often because they are technically more difficult, take more more time and have more risk. IV contrast dye can damage kidneys and cause phlebitis. So because the done so infrequently the skill get a bit rusty and we prefer newer less invasive methods for diagnosis

Hi I am a 61 yr old male my question do Drs still do urine test and prostate test with a annual physical exam? My New Dr doesn't do this

Hi I am a 61 yr old male my question do Drs still do urine test and prostate test with a annual physical exam? My New Dr doesn't do this

Good question!: Currently, there is debate and lack of consensus on, not only the value of the routine annual exam but also, what it should consist of and what tests should be included, which is why there is great variation among MDs. Routine annual urinalysis in a healthy adult has not been proven to be cost-effective. The AUA recommends annual prostate cancer screening with a DRE and PSA test for men ages 55-69

For physical exam blood tests, Do doctors usually check for Lyme disease or does it get noticed in the blood? Does that have to be requested?

For physical exam blood tests, Do doctors usually check for Lyme disease or does it get noticed in the blood? Does that have to be requested?

Blood tests: "Routine" blood tests do not check for Lyme disease. A blood test for Lyme disease would be done when a suspicion for the disease from the history and/or physical warrants it.

Deep pelvic pain during sex. 7.5 mos after c-section. Is this normal? What can be done? Swab test and physical exam were ok. What could be the cause?

Deep pelvic pain during sex. 7.5 mos after c-section. Is this normal? What can be done? Swab test and physical exam were ok. What could be the cause?

Scars: Scar tissue from the C-section may prevent your uterus from being as mobile in your pelvis as it was before the C-section and not to move out of the way during intercourse as it used to do before C-section.

I'm 65 years old, with heart disease in family history. What benefit from the high-sensitivity c-reactive protein (hs-crp) test in physical exam?

I'm 65 years old, with heart disease in family history. What benefit from the high-sensitivity c-reactive protein (hs-crp) test in physical exam?

CRP test for hearts: Most experts agree that testing for highly sensitive CRP does not add much to the traditional assessment of cardiac risk factors. The main factors to pay attention to (in addition) to the family history are exercise, diet, blood pressure, cholesterol, daily aspirin, not smoking, relaxation, maintaining weight. The value for CRP has been for low risk patients with relatively low cholesterol.

Can I get an STD test while on my period? Is it normal for a doctor to refuse blood and urine testing to a patient, and only recommend a physical exam

Can I get an STD test while on my period? Is it normal for a doctor to refuse blood and urine testing to a patient, and only recommend a physical exam

Yes: Testing for STDs can be done while on your period. Some are done on blood drawn from your arm and others on urine or cervical swabs but bleeding does not prevent any of the testing. The only way to know why a physician would want to just do an exam and no blood or urine tests would be to ask that physician. Sorry I can't tell u what the other doctor was thinking. It may have been done to save money
