Why do you still have symptoms when your lab tests are normal? Why do you continue to suffer with extreme fatigue and unrelenting pain when the MD has told you that all of your lab tests are “normal.” Why do you have trouble sleeping when you have been told everything is normal? Why do you continue putting on weight if EVERYTHING IS NORMAL????
The answer is because the MD’s lab tests are extremely broad. The ranges vary WIDELY!
Let me give you one example. Because your thyroid controls your body’s metabolism, your MD has usually ordered only one thyroid test, the TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone). If you are lucky, maybe he has ordered a couple more. From your MD’s perspective, if your TSH level is within that very wide lab range of .35 to 5.0, you’re normal–there’s nothing wrong with you! BUT—and this is a HUGE “BUT”—the OPTIMAL LEVEL or “functional level” for TSH is much more narrow: 1.8 to 3.0. So you could still be “normal” in the medical doctor’s eyes but abnormal in the functional or optimal range.
The same holds true for all of your other lab tests, every single one of them. There are “lab” ranges, which are very broad and “optimal” or “functional” which are much narrower.
Your MD will tell you your lab tests are “normal” so YOU ARE NORMAL! There is NOTHING wrong with you. “It’s ALL in your head!”“You don’t need medication because you don’t have a problem!” Even though you still may have the horrible symptoms of tingling, burning, numbness and pain, you have a “psychosomatic illness”. Your MD tells you that all that you need to do is exercise and take some antidepressants….R-I-G-H-T…
The problem is that you need a doctor who is going to examine your lab tests from a “functional” range perspective and NOT a “lab” range perspective.
