The Real Deal!

Updated: Sep 21, 2022

As promised last week.....

The OPTIMAL ranges/results on your blood test results 👇

This is where we want to aim for for great health, vitality, energy and longevity👇

Remember, these are not the "normal" measures because "normal" represents the "normal" population and like I said last week, when I look around me at the increasing levels of disease including diabetes, chronic fatigue, obesity, allergies, asthma, hormone related conditions and worse, I don't want to be "normal"!

Ferritin (Iron studies) 85 - 100 ug/L

AST (Liver function) below 26 U/L

ALT (Liver function) below 26 U/L

Bicarbonate (General chemistry) 27 -29 nmol/L

Lipid Panel

  • LDL 2.5 nmol/L or less

  • HDL above 1nmol/L

The ratio of LDL:HDL is the important marker

Ideally the ratio should be 3:1 or less. 2HDL:1LDL is ideal

  • Triglycerides less than 1.5 nmol/L

Thyroid studies

  • TSH 1-2 mU/L

  • T4 14-15 pmol/L

  • T3 5 - 7 pmol/L

  • RT3 140 - 340 pmol/L

  • Thyroid antibodies less than 50

Hormones - blood tests are not entirely accurate and results will vary according to whether or not you are menstruating and at what point in your cycle the test was done.

Our bodies are amazing and our body will always strive to achieve a a state of homeostasis in our blood

For example, excess estrogen in our blood serum is removed and stored in fat cells.

Hence, saliva tests are are a more accurate diagnostic tool for hormones

Vitamin D 100 - 200 nmol/L

Vitamin B12 500+ pmol/l

Zinc 14 - 22 µmol/L

Glucose (fasting) 3.5 - 4.7 nmol/L

The results above are indicative of

  • a well functioning thyroid

  • a well functioning liver and

  • optimal bodily pH levels

If your blood test results fall within these ranges it is indicative of good health however, it you have nagging symptoms or you just don't feel right, please don't ignore these signs, LISTEN to your body!

Signs such as these are not "normal"

  • skin issues

  • sleep challenges

  • lack of energy

  • unexplained weight gain

  • painful cycles

  • hot flushes

  • migraines

These are all signs that something is not right

Maybe your body is craving various nutrients or your hormones are trying to tell you something

👉 Dig deeper and don't ever be told that these symptoms are "normal"

👉 If you are unsure as to who to talk to or where to turn next book a Wellness Chat by clicking on the button below

Next week I will share with you how a really yucky skin issue turned out to be a "sign" that my hormones were needing some attention!

Happy Healthy Wishes Always
