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!
