Re: [IP] lab tests

>How frequently do you have lab tests- cholesterol, protein in urine, etc? 
>And which doctor orders them?

I have cholesterol and protein in urine checked every six months, and my 
endo orders the tests.  Since I turned 50 last September, he told me next 
time I go in (in about 3-4 months) he'll order a treadmill stress test due 
to a history of heart disease, etc. in my family. My PCP orders mamograms 
and bone density tests.  My PCP also requests that she gets the test 
results from my endo.
