Hidden Nutrition Meanings in Your Bloodwork

Has your doctor ever analyzed your blood test results nutritionally?

How many times have you heard your doctor say ‘your test results are normal” and yet you are not feeling 100 percent?

Please don’t get me wrong, I have the utmost respect for doctors and their profession, but most are not trained to look at your blood test results nutritionally.

Blood Chemistry

Our current medical model mainly consists of disease management and not early detection or prevention. The references that are provided with laboratory test results are referred to as “the pathological range”, if your test results are out of range, it usually indicates potential for pathology or disease.

As a functional nutritionist I look at the functional ranges of your blood chemistry. The main difference between the functional & pathological range is the degree of deviation allowed within their normal ranges. What does this mean for  you?

Well, here’s a perfect example: if your cholesterol numbers are high, depending on your doctor and  age your doctor may recommend  some dietary changes or ask that you start taking cholesterol lowering meds, known as statins. The functional nutritionist will look at that same scenario and think, let’s look at thyroid numbers, does this patient have normal functioning thyroid? 

If you didn’t know, that your thyroid was not functioning at optimum levels and that this can cause the body go through the lipogenesis (metabolic formation of fat) process, then you would start medication without a thought. This means that your cholesterol numbers will go up, but it’s due to thyroid and not because of your diet, but you remain untreated for the real problem.

That is just one example, I’ve had patients say “my blood test looks normal but I’m still not feeling 100% . After examining their blood work I could see a low grade infection, blood sugar imbalances or vitamin deficiencies.

Individualized functional blood analysis looks at your nutritional strengths and weaknesses, nutritional imbalances, and addresses the true cause of your symptoms and their origin. When lab results fall within the patterns of a functional imbalance, strategies such as lifestyle, diet, nutrition, and other non-invasive therapies may be recommended. 

Functional ranges have been determined by healthcare providers and researchers who embrace the principles of preventative medicine. Much of the research regarding functional ranges has been established by well-respected organizations such as the American Association of Clinical Chemists. This means they are valid, but may miss specific areas that could be treated.

In the video I mentioned that I'll include here what exact tests are in each category.
