I was supposed to stay on this formula for four weeks and then I was supposed to get my albumin levels re-tested. But I am really doubting that I can continue on this formula. I am really ambivalent in my thoughts because part of me actually doesn't want this formula to have an effect on my albumin so I can go back to my old formula and stop feeling crappy all the time. But on the other hand I know that living with hypoalbuminemia is not a good thing, and we need to find a way to get my albumin levels up. And what if the formula does help with my protein absorption and I have to stay on it in order to be healthy? AARGH!!!! Of course I want to be healthy, but I don't want to feel as bad as I have been feeling.
I e-mailed my dietican a couple hours ago and told her what has been going on. I am very tempted to just hook up my old formula tonight.
It looks as vile as it smells.
