Patient :I'm getting ready to implement a new exercise and diet plan to get my health back on track. I've always been a healthy person, tho I've always beenoverweight. After a bout of depression, I've gained an extra 80lbs this last year and a half. As I'm preparing to lose weight quickly, but safely and with HEALTH in mind, I want to get a round of labs done as a starting point. Which labs would you suggest as being the most important? I am a 28yo Female, 350lbs, 5'7 and live a (generally) healthy lifestyle. Previous labs (about 19 months ago) showed PERFECT kidney and liver functions, good thyroid, and general excellent health. But, as I intend to drop weight, I'd like a baseline of my health incase anything happens.
