Blood Tests: When we run comprehensive testing, we get more answers to symptoms and health challenges and a clear direction we can trust to feel healthier.
When I took functional blood work markers classes, my eyes were opened wide to areas I had not thought about with my health.
The main thing I learned was that the blood tests I had been getting were pretty basic, so I had zero answers for some symptoms. The symptoms I had were not terrible, but they were affecting the quality of my life. I battled a sluggish thyroid for years, but my TSH was always within the normal range, so I was told my thyroid was fine. I learned about the importance of Free T3, Free T4, TPO antibodies, and thyroid antibodies, I looked at my previous blood tests, and they were never tested.
I also learned about other blood tests that I had to run on myself; insulin, leptin, lipoprotein A, C reactive protein, fibrinogen, homocysteine which all have to do with inflammation. Having had Lyme since the 1980s, my body felt inflamed, but I needed to see the numbers in blood tests. I honestly had 3 cups of coffee each day of the blood tests classes to keep me alert. I did not want to miss a word of the teachers’ lecture.
When the online blood tests classes were over I found someone like myself that I trusted to order the blood tests this doctor spoke about. I was so happy with the results!
My blood tests showed
TSH was 4,2 (it should not be higher than a 2.0)
Free t3 was 1.5 (it should not be lower than 3.0)
Free T4 was ok
Tpo ab was negative
Thyroid antithyroglobulin ab was positive – uh hah I had autoimmunity against the thyroid – no wonder I had been struggling with weight. I just had to adjust my diet to stop the immune attacks, and my thyroid ab would go down, and they did.
Insulin was 12 – too high for me; it needs to be around a 5
Leptin was too high – 52 – indicated inflammation and weight gain, which I already knew, but seeing how high it was triggered my brain that I had to fix it today.
C reactive protein – 7.5 – uh oh, thick blood for me – I take after my dad, so I had to lower this right away too
Even though my blood tests were not terrific, I had a plan I could trust. I gained the knowledge I needed to take the proper steps to live a healthier and happier life. It only took me three months of changing things up, and my following blood tests were perfect! YAY, my health and wellness improved, and I felt healthier and more confident. Phew!
