- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
After my son's endo appointment I took him to get his HbAlc done at the lab, because his doctor won't do the HbAlc in the office because insurance doesn't reimburse enough. The prescription has a list of labs with the ones that the doctor wants circled. Listed under HbAlc, which is not circled, is "HCG quantitative," which is circled. I handed the prescription to the phlebotomist, who read it, glanced over at my son and then asked me, "Does he need a pregnancy test?"
