This coming week, my doctor scheduled me for a test called a AAA Ultrasound. From my original blood tests that he diagnosed me with diabetes last month, he found that I have high cholesterol (216) and a high lipid count. I had explained to him that after a few hours of being on my feet whether at work or anywhere, my lower legs and my feet start to pain me. From what I was able to find online, this test seems to be a diagnostic to scan for an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysym. Admittedly this has me a little scared as my father had an aortic aneurysym that eventually did him in.
Has anyone here been through this test?
