A MESSAGE FROM DR. MICHAEL WALD, THE BLOOD DETECTIVE
We all know the value of carefully focused laboratory blood tests. You probably have had blood tests performed by one or more health care providers in your journey to stay and get well. We approach our patient’s needs often recommending blood tests, and other non-blood evaluations, that are more commonly performed by several health care providers, separately with little to no coordination of care and consideration. Not only do we test far more comprehensively than many healthcare providers, we also interpret your results within our BLOOD DETECTIVE approach described here. We believe that our approach offers us with a greater possibility of helping you achieve your health goals. We compare your blood results to “clinical ranges” and “functional” or “healthy ranges”. Clinical ranges are the blood ranges that you are used to seeing on a typical printout of your blood test results; you are compared to ranges of “normal” of seemingly well individuals in the population. These clinical ranges are useful for obvious health problems, but are not perfect and often appear “normal” even when you are not feeling well and/or when your doctor says to you, “Sorry, your blood tests are normal…I can’t help you.” Research in many areas of health care has indicated that the “normal or clinical” ranges are often inappropriate and need readjusting to keep up with new discoveries, and…”health goals” as opposed to disease-detection. In short, the Blood DetectiveTM technologies often uses different ranges of “normal” that Dr. Wald calls, “functional, healthy or optimal” that may provide an additive or alternative interpretation of your so called, “normal” blood results.
