Typical Laboratory Interpretations of Blood
Most laboratories use an automated electronic system such as the sequential multiple analyzer with computer (SMAC).  This equipment and procedure can accurately detect abnormalities in blood chemistry.  Nutritional information can be obtained from the laboratory findings from standard blood chemistry tests; however, American medical professionals typically only look at blood chemistry for gross disease abnormalities.

Usual ranges are obtained by testing volunteers, and the ranges are typically computed as the middle 95% of these results.  Volunteers are typically selected at random and are considered healthy as long as they are free of evidence of disease.  Much controversy surrounds the understanding of the term “normal and healthy.”  One researcher defines the “normal” person as one that has not been sufficiently evaluated!  By accepting this 95% middle range as a “reference,” one assumes that only 5% of those tested are considered unhealthy.  It is also possible for all laboratory results to fall within the reference ranges (considered disease free) and yet be far from optimum function.  The absence of disease does not mean the presence of health.

Comprehensive Blood Evaluations at the The Nutrition and Wellness Center
The Nutrition and Wellness Center evaluates blood chemistry tests from the standpoint of achieving optimal health versus identifying a manifested disease, so a much narrower reference range is used.  Each individual receiving a comprehensive blood evaluation will be educated about the optimum blood parameter levels needed to prevent and reverse many dysfunctions in the body.

Below is a sample of a single test marker from a standard blood lab report with the The Nutrition and Wellness Center’s evaluation comments; a common report will reflect as many as 45 different blood parameters.

Albumin: A protein manufactured by the liver and used to transport nutrients and waste material from the body to be excreted. Albumin is a reflection of liver health, protein intake and digestive function.

Your Albumin level:
Optimum range: 4.6 – 5.2 gm/dl
Usual range: 3.5 – 5.5 gm/dl

Decreased Albumin indicates low protein intake or under utilization is probable. Suspect low HCL and low enzyme production in pancreas and stomach; supplementation is appropriate. Chewing food 40-50 times per bite will aid in absorption of protein. Consider an amino acid analysis test to evaluate detailed protein status. Milk Thistle can improve liver production of protein up to 40%.

Elevated Albumin has been seen with tissue swelling, digestive inflammation and protein loss is also common with elevation of albumin. General toxicity should be considered; a detoxification program is suggested.

Sample Report

This information is reference material and considers only laboratory values of different body chemistry. It is not intended to diagnose disease or suggest therapy for any disease. A licensed medical physician should make diagnosis and treatment of disease. The approach of this material is to initiate better lifestyle changes to improve the quality of living in optimal health. We encourage quarterly blood labs to evaluate the seasonal change effect on the body chemistry. For example in the summer cholesterol levels are always considerably lower due to the higher concentration of ultra violet light from the sunshine converting the cholesterol in your skin to cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3)
