This book presents a diagnostic system of blood chemistry and CBC analysis that focuses on physiological function as a marker of health. By looking for optimum function we increase our ability to detect dysfunctions long before disease manifests. Conventional lab testing becomes a truly preventative and prognostic tool.
Includes: In-depth coverage of 52 blood tests with optimal and functional values 62 patterns of functional disorders that most physicians do not get from normal reference ranges 11 nutrient deficiencies that can be seen in blood chemistry and CBC tests 36 special topics and in-office tests Full section of patterns that exist between multiple tests
