Why do I still feel bad when my blood test are normal?

Most people who seek medical care, especially from a practitioner trained in Complementary and Alternative Medicine do not have a clinically identifiable disease. Patients coming to us have usually been told that everything looks normal based on the standard tests run by their doctor. As practitioners we know that most of our patients are by no means normal, but are a long way from being in an optimal state of health. So why use diagnostic tools and standard interpretations that are designed to identify disease states and pathology only? Shouldn’t we use interpretive and diagnostic methods that can help us assess a wide range of problems that are more suggestive of subclinical or functional problems? Many patients fall through the cracks of the current medical paradigm because they are neither sick from a pathological perspective, nor 100% well. These patients fall into a gray area of medicine. This gray area is the area of dysfunction and Functional diagnosis is one of the best ways to sleuth out what is truly going on. By doing this we have an incredible opportunity to make changes long before true pathology sets in. An example of this is blood sugar deregulation, which is becoming an epidemic in Western industrialized societies. Blood sugar deregulation occurs along a spectrum of time. On the one end we have the beginnings of hypoglycemia. On the other end we have Type 2 Diabetes. No one wakes up as a Type 2 Diabetic with first traversing along this spectrum. However, there are a few methodologies used in standard western medicine to help evaluate where along the spectrum one might be. At some point a doctor may tell a patient that they are pre-diabetic. This may be too late. With functional diagnosis we can see the trend towards diabetes very early by looking at the gray area. The blood glucose levels are not so high that I am worried about Diabetes, but they are high enough, and there are significant signs and symptoms of dysglycemia that I want to begin a treatment plan to address the tendency towards blood sugar deregulation. With functional diagnosis, we can look for aberrations in physiology, make adjustments in the treatment plan, check to see we are going in the right direction, and make a significant change in our patient’s lives.
