You might check it if you noticed a sudden weight gain. You're UP/UCing, right? Let me know if you want the numbers my doc suggested. He's really non-interventive and his numbers were generous, IMO.

And that is why I included the qualifier. What you suffered is inexcusable, but surely you realize that is the exception, not the rule?
