Wayfaring MD

I am a family medicine resident who likes to highlight the hilarious in medicine as I write about patients, medical school, residency, medical missions, and whatever else strikes my fancy.

  • Someone else's Patient: How was my salt level on those labs?
  • Me: Your sodium was normal.
  • Patient: Oh good, it was real low last time.
  • Me: (flipping back to old labs) Yeah, it was. What was that about?
  • Patient: My doctor told me to stop putting salt on my food because it was making me have high blood pressure. So I stopped all the salt and then it got low!
  • Me: Wow. Patients who actually do what their doctors recommend. It's amazing.
