Blood Tests

From personal experience of many blood tests over the years I now ask for a printout of the results and go through them with my doctor.

For years I was told that ‘everything’s fine, within the range’!  Don’t just accept that because I have found, especially, re Vitamin levels, the range is far too low.  I asked the doctor how the range is chosen and she said it’s an average of the general population.  I replied ‘But most people seem to be sick’!  She agreed.

I asked about Sodium on the printout and was told that it was low and that I can take more salt.  Wasn’t she going to tell me that?  I had to ask!

Please take responsibility for your own health.  ASK QUESTIONS!
