Blood Test Analysis
Many people have symptoms that affect their everyday life, yet are told by their GP that their blood tests are "normal". It`s so frustrating
NHS blood tests have very wide reference ranges for their "normal" readings. That means you can be really low and verging on a deficiency, yet be told that everything is ok.
In functional and naturopathic medicine, the reference range that is used is much smaller and is an "optimal" range. This means that if you fall out of the optimal range, you will most likely encounter symptoms.
My blood test interpretation package will provide you with an explanation of your results in terms of optimal ranges.
You will receive a written explanation and some tips on how to improve your health.
How to get your blood test results
When you get your blood tested with your GP, simply ask the receptionist for a copy of your results. Sometimes, you may be asked to request your results in writing, depending on your local health authority.
Your healthcare provider is legally obliged to give you your results.
How old can blood tests be?
Blood tests are only relevant for up to 3 months. Your results should be within the past 3 months.
How can I get my blood tested?
